Jayalalithaa shifted to ‘normal ward’ from ICU

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, who was admitted to Apollo Hospitals in Chennai for fever and dehydration on September 22, was shifted to a special room from the Intensive Critical Care (ICU) today.

The room, located on the second floor, is having all the facilities of an ICU, including respiratory support, a senior doctor told Times of India.

“It’s a step down intensive care unit, a kind of bridge between the intensive care unit and special ward or home. Besides ventilation, it is equipped with medicines and equipment for emergency care,” the doctor said.

The 68-year-old leader will, however, continue to be on tracheostomy and so visitors will be restricted.

Meanwhile, AIADMK cadre started to celebrate after Jayalalithaa was taken out of the ICU.

Apollo Hospitals Chairman Pratap C Reddy had yesterday said that the Chief Minister ‘is fine and is in the ICU in order to protect her from fresh infection’.

Speaking to reporters here, he said that Jayalalithaa is breathing and sleeping well, and is on ventilator only for 15 minutes in a day.
