The Supreme Patriarch’s blood pressure continues to drop and he does not respond to medicines to increase blood pressure, Chulalongkorn Hospital announced. 

In the sixth announcement released by the hospital, late Tuesday night, it said His Holiness Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara had an inconsistent heart rate and his blood pressure was not satisfactory.

Doctors have changed his medication to increase his blood pressure and control his heartbeat and are still administering antibiotics to him. They have ordered a blood transfusion for him and fluids are delivered through an intravenous line.
