'No pulse and extremely low blood pressure'

Pranav Kabra, doctor and head of Raksha Hospital, told IANS that Gehana was brought in with no pulse and extremely low blood pressure. He revealed that it took the team of doctors two hours to revive her pulse. They suspect that the attack might have happened due to certain reaction between her prescription medicines and some energy drinks she consumed in the day.

"She is not responding to treatment and has difficulty breathing on her own. We have put her on ventilator to ensure she has proper oxygen supply to her brain. You can describe her condition as extremely critical for now," Kabra told the agency.

"From the preliminary information we have got so far, Gehana Vasisth was shooting for nearly 48 hours without consuming proper nourishment. She has been admitted to the Intensive Care section and we are doing a series of tests on her. She is suffering from diabetes and her sugar is on the higher side, while her BP is very low. We were told she consumed some energy drinks and was also taking medication for diabetes and some other ailment. We are not sure if there was any reaction between what she consumed. We have to wait for the results of all the tests," added the doctor.
