Assam’s three-time chief minister and veteran Congress leader Tarun Gogoi has been admitted to the intensive care unit of the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH).
According to reports, the 85-year-old has been rushed to the GMCH after he complained of breathing problems. “Tarun Gogoi is currently on Non-invasive ventilation (NIV), on 50 percent Fiot which was brought back to 40 percent, maintaining saturation of 96 to 98 percent. Although he is serious he is hemodynamically stable. He has pneumonia due to carbon dioxide retention in the body. But he is responding to the doctors’ command,” stated Dr Abhijeet Sarma, Superintendent of GMCH.
It is to be noted that the former CM was recently discharged on October 25 after 60 days of hospitalisation. After his release, Assam health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had said Gogoi’s “further treatment shall continue in his official residence under the supervision of the doctors from the medical college”.
