CM Jayalalithaa Remains in Grave Situation: Dr. Richard Beale

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa "continues to be under grave situation", but everything is being done to give her the best chance of surviving, said London-based intensivist Dr. Richard Beale.

He said in spite of the progress she had made, her underlying health conditions inevitably meant that the "risk of further problems always remained".

He further said the Chief Minister is now on extra-corporal support, which is the most advance support level.

"The situation is extremely grave, but I can confirm that everything possible is being done to give her the best chance of surviving this shocking event. She is being cared for by a highly expert multidisciplinary team, and is now on extra-corporal life support. This is the most advanced level of support available, and is the approach the best centres internationally would take in this situation," he said in a statement.

Jayalalithaa, who was undergoing treatment at Apollo Hospitals here, suffered a cardiac arrest Sunday evening. Meanwhile, the government swung into action, as the Centre's brass got in touch with the state governor C. Vidyasagar Rao and assured complete central assistance.

Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu spoke to the Governor and state Chief Secretary P. Rama Mohana Rao enquiring about her health and will also fly down to Chennai to assess the situation. Also, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh also spoke to the Governor in regard with the law and order situation in the state given the tense state of affairs regarding Jayalalithaa, and was assured that the situation was under control.

Union Minister Kiren Rijiju also assured Tamil Nadu government that the Centre is always willing to help if they require extra force in regards with maintaining law and order.
