–Doctor heading Nawaz’s medical team suffers heart attack
ISLAMABAD: The five-member medical team of Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), constituted for examination of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, on Monday declared his condition unsatisfactory and decided to seek the latter’s medical history from his doctors in London to prescribe medicines.
According to the reports of a temporary checkup, Nawaz’s cholesterol level is higher than the normal limit and stands at 127 while the quantity of urea is 40 and blood cells, that should normally be 4%, are 11.1%. He also has a swollen left knee and his health, according to the doctors, is deteriorating.
The convicted former prime minister’s HB level is 14, sodium in his blood is 141 and the quantity of potassium is 3.8. The quantity of Nawaz’s platelets is reportedly 167,000.
DOCTOR HEADING NAWAZ’s MEDICAL TEAM SUFFERS HEART ATTACK:
Meanwhile, the doctor heading the medical team for Nawaz’s examination has suffered a heart attack.
As per the details, Dr Ejaz Qadeer of PIMS was hospitalised after suffering from a heart attack on Sunday night and is currently under treatment at the hospital’s cardiac department.
It was reported that Dr Qadeer has been a cardiac patient for quite some time and has suffered from a heart attack earlier as well.
“He was fitted with two stents in the past,” the hospital officials reported.
The medical board for Nawaz’s checkup spearheaded by Dr Qadeer also comprised PIMS Head of Cardiology Dr Naeem Malik, Medical Specialist Dr Shajee Siddiqui, Dr Sohail Tanvir and Dr Mashood.
On Sunday, it was reported that former premier Nawaz Sharif was shifted from Adiala Jail to PIMS cardiac ward on the orders of the caretaker government.
Furthermore, his ECG showed irregular heart activity and the tests revealed blood clots. The deposed PM was also experiencing pain in both arms. The ex-PM’s physician Dr Adnan Khan had requested the authorities to shift Nawaz for critical medical care. The ex-PM should be shifted to the critical medical care as he needs attention as a cardiac patient until tests normalise, Dr Khan said.
After initially refusing to be shifted to the PIMS, Nawaz agreed to be treated outside the prison after consulting with his personal doctor.
According to a notification issued after Nawaz’s transfer to PIMS hospital on Sunday night, the medical facility’s cardiac ward has been declared a sub-jail.
