Puttaparthi (AP): Spiritual leader Satya Sai Baba continued to be critical on Wednesday, however, doctors attending on him are satisfied with his response to the treatment.

"Sri Satya Sai Baba, who is under treatment in this hospital for multi-organ failure, is showing positive but slow response in the treatment given to him," a bulletin issued by A N Safaya, Director of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences here, said.

"He is still on the ventilator and intermittent hemodialysis. His vital parameters of health are nearly normal," it said.

"The continued stable state of health is a matter of satisfaction to the treating team of doctors, although he continues to be critical," the bulletin added.

The 85-year-old Satya Sai Baba was admitted to the super-speciality hospital on March 28 following problems related to heart and respiration.
