Puttaparthi (AP): Undergoing treatment for multi-organ dysfunction, spiritual leader Satya Sai Baba’s condition remains critical and continues to be on ventilator to help his lungs.

"Although his vital parameters and indices are near normal, yet the condition of his liver and intermittent episodes of low blood pressure are still a cause of worry," Dr A N Safaya, Director, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, said in a medical bulletin here.

A panel of doctors are monitoring him round-the-clock and giving all the necessary treatment to keep him in a stable state of health, Dr Safaya said.

The 86-year-old Satya Sai Baba was hospitalised on March 28 following problems related to heart and respiration.
