Docs worried about Sajad’s bullet-hit eye
Srinagar, Feb 14: Days after receiving serious injuries in alleged CRPF firing in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district, doctors at SKIMS here have taken two youth, Sajad Bhat and Mushtaq Ahmad, off the ventilator saying they showed improvements.
While doctors removed ventilator support of Mushtaq Ahmad of Sopore two days ago, Sajad Bhat of Watrgam was taken off the ventilator yesterday as they could breathe on their own.
“They are responding well to the treatment. They are also able to breathe on their own, which is a positive sign. Their respiratory rate and other vital parameters are well within limits,” Director SKIMS, Dr Showkat A Zargar, told Greater Kashmir.
He said the youth might be discharged in 2 or 3 days. “After being taken off ventilator, they were put on normal diet and fluids. They can talk now,” he said.
“Sajad has already been shifted to the hospital’s general ward as his condition is stable. We gave him food through mouth,” Dr Zargar said.
He said doctors were concerned about his left eye as it has been damaged by bullet. “He might need separate medical assistance for that,” Dr Zargar said.
About Mushtaq, the Director said: “He is still under observation in the ICU as a vital artery of his leg was damaged. Though it has been grafted but his wounds will take some more time to heal due to excessive loss of blood.”
