He was having high fever and coughing since last week. On Monday, when he suddenly started having severe shortness of breath & his SPO2 level started dropping alarmingly, he needed to be hospitalized as per Doctor's advise. We took him to Sagar Dutta Medical College & Hospital Kolkata, however they denied to take admission & referred him to Zenith Super speciality Hospital as he was very critical. There he was immediately put on oxygen support and all the diagnosis started. But his condition deteriorated hugely the following day and he was electively intubated & ventilated. But since his condition didn’t improve, he was shifted to ECMO Support.
His Final Diagnosis at Zenith Hospital is:
Cardiac arrest with severe damage of both the Lungs.
Pulse efficiency- 25 (Normal values:- 55-70%)
Acute Spasm and gasping.
Currently, he is on ECMO and will need long-term ventilation till his lungs and other necessary vitals recover. If his lung does not improve, he might need a lung transplant.
Although we are trying our best to provide him the medical care needed but he is the only earning member in the family and his present treatment cost has exhausted most of our savings. Your generous help to continue the fight to save my father from this deadly condition.
And here is a brief detail of expenses 2,00,000 INR till 28th July 2021 at Zenith Super speciality Hospital. We need more 7,00,000 INR.
