Veteran actor Soumitra Chatterjee health condition worsened on Friday (November 13).

A doctor treating the veteran actor said, “While the neurological condition of the 85-year old is worst during the entire period of his over a month long stay at the hospital, an EEG proved there was very little activity within the brain itself.”

“Situation is not that good. His condition has actually deteriorated. The neurological condition is worst in the entire period of his stay. It deteriorated in last 48 hours. We did a CT scan to find out if there was any problem. We did an EEG but there is very little activity within the brain itself,” he added.

Though Soumitra Chatterjee did not suffer any convulsions, his heart conditions are not keeping good.

Dr Arindam Kar said, “His heart rate became high but got controlled. His oxygenation requirement has gone up and kidney functions not good. He is now on alternate dialysis. Overall, it seems his situation won’t be good in coming 24 hours. For the first time, we are expecting unfavorable outcome of the entire thing. We are giving our best but it seems our best may not be adequate for full recovery of Mr Chatterjee.”

Soumitra Chatterjee on Thursday (November 12) had undergone the first plasmapheresis for raising his plasma count.

Plasmapheresis is a process in which the liquid part of the blood, or plasma, is separated from the blood cells and replaced with another solution such as saline or albumin, or treated and returned to the body to treat autoimmune disorders.
