Apollo Hospitals said they had been updating the Prime Minister’s Office, Raj Bhawan and Union health ministry about the health condition of the chief minister.

Sixty-eight-year-old Jayalalithaa was admitted to hospital on September 22 with complaints of “fever and dehydration.” She was later put ventilator and treated with antibiotics for infection and lung congestion. Later, doctors did a tracheostomy – made a hole in the wind pipe near the neck – so they didn’t have to put the tube through her mouth.

Soon, she was on a regular, but high-protein, diet and given passive and active physiotherapy.

On November 19, doctors moved her to a personalised room which would had facilities of an intensive care unit, including respiratory support. The room was a step down intensive care unit, a kind of bridge between the intensive care unit and special ward or home. Besides ventilation, it was equipped with medicines and equipment for emergency care.
Last week, Apollo Hospitals chairman Dr Prathap C Reddy said Jayalalithaa was using a speaking aid as it was difficult for her to speak with the tracheostomy.
