Significant improvement in Atal Bihari Vajpayee's health: AIIMS

Former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who was admitted to AIIMS hospital on Monday, has shown significant improvement in the last 48 hours and doctors are hopeful of his full recovery in the next few days, AIIMS director Dr Randeep Guleria said on Wednesday.

The 93-year-old veteran BJP leader had urinary tract infection, chest congestion and his urine output was on the lower side when he was admitted, DR Guleria said in the hospital’s health bulletin on Vajpayee’s health.

“He has shown significant improvement in the last 48 hours. His kidney function is normal and his urine output is nearly normal now.

“The infection is under control and the blood pressure, respiratory function and heart rate are normal. We are hopeful of his full recovery in the next few days,” Guleria told reporters.

Several political leaders, including Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and former prime ministers Manmohan Singh and HD Deve Gowda have visited Vajpayee in the hospital over the next two days.
