Anantapur (AP): Sri Satya Sai Baba, who
was admitted to hospital following lung and chest congestion,
continues to be on ventilator support but is showing
improvement, doctors attending on him said on Monday.

"Sri Satya Sai Baba, who was admitted in the hospital
on 28th March, continued to show improvement in his clinical
condition. He is still on assisted ventilation and on kidney
support through CRRT, which is a process of slow dialysis," a
media release issued this morning by the Director of Sri Satya
Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences said.

"All other clinical parameters are nearly normal. The
panel of doctors attending on him are satisfied with the
progress made so far," it said.

85-year-old Satya Sai Baba was admitted to the
super-speciality hospital at Prashantigram at Puttaparti near
here following respiration-related problems.
