Rajnikanth shifted back to ICU

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth, who was admitted to the Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre on May 13 for recurrent respiratory infection and gastro-intestinal problems, was tonight shifted to the Intensive Care Unit. This has been done to improve his breathing pattern, a hospital press release said adding that the actor was showing positive response to treatment.
A multi-disciplinary team of doctors is busy closely watching his vital parameters to assess benefits from multi-pronged treatment strategies, it said. Doctors said he was responding well to treatment. Rajinikant, who suffered from viral fever and exhaustion recently, was admitted to SRMU at suburban Porur days after he was discharged from another hospital where he had been treated for allergic bronchitis and viral fever.
