The 23-year-old Delhi gangrape survivor is in an extremely critical condition, say doctors at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.
Dr VP Nair, who is a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre (Hospital), Singapore, said, "She was very critical when she came. She has had multiple surgeries in India itself. She can get infection, don't think her brain condition is great at the moment. Sometimes there can be a miracle, I can't say. We will do our best. When there is a multi-organ failure, we have to see the situation one by one."
Before she was admitted to the Singapore hospital she had undergone three abdominal surgeries and had experienced two cardiac arrests while undergoing treatment at the Delhi hospital. Doctors at the Safdarjung hospital said that on Tuesday night, she suffered two cardiac arrests. The decision to move her was taken at a meeting attended by the Cabinet Secretary, according to sources.
The Mount Elizabeth hospital specialises in multi-organ transplant procedures. The government is bearing all the expenses for the 23-year-old's treatment. Her parents and a team of doctors from the Safdarjung Hospital have also accompanied her.
Doctors at the Safdarjung hospital said that as the 23-year-old continued to be critical and it was therefore, important to shift her to Singapore. "She has survived the after effects of the injuries so far, but her condition continues to be critical. It has been decided that the patient be shifted abroad for further treatment in Singapore as advised by the team of doctors. The said hospital has a state of the art multi-organ transplant facility. The arrangements have also been made for the family to accompany her," Medical Superintendent of Safdarjung Hospital Dr BD Athani said.
The decision of taking the patient who requires ventilator support was a tough one to take, but the competent authorities found it to be a good move and said that the hospital in Singapore will provide her better treatment there.
The team of doctors treating her consulted other doctors across India, US and UK. The gangrape has outraged the nation and sparked massive protests in the national capital, with the government announcing a number of security measures for women in the city. All six accused in the case have been arrested.
