Doctors attending to Quader at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore previously considered a coronary bypass surgery
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader’s health condition is steadily improving, doctors attending to him at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore said on Friday.
“His blood pressure is normal, the kidneys are functioning well, and the infection is under control,” said Prof Dr Abu Nasar Rizvi, of the neuromedicine department at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).
Dr Rizvi cited Dr Sivathasan Cumaraswamy, cardiothoracic surgeon and senior member of the five-member medical team treating Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, at Mouth Elizabeth Hospital.
Abu Naser, public relations officer of Roads and Highways Division, confirmed the information to the Bangla Tribune on Friday.
Abu Naser said: “Dr Rizvi told us that Quader’s heart is functioning well without the artificial support, and there have been steady progress in his condition.”
Earlier on Tuesday, the medical team at Mount Elizabeth Hospital considered a coronary bypass surgery for Quader.
Quader was admitted at the BSMMU due to respiratory distress just after Fajr prayers on Sunday.
He was diagnosed with three artery blockages, one of which was neutralized.
On Monday, renowned Indian cardiac surgeon Dr Devi Shetty was flown in to Dhaka to make an assessment of Quader’s session, who recommended that he be taken to Singapore for better treatment.
Later on Monday night, Quader was flown to Singapore in an air ambulance.
