King's respiratory system improves

An infection that got into His Majesty the King's respiratory system has declined, according to the Royal Household Bureau.

A team of doctors who are looking after the monarch at Siriraj Hospital issued the report after he received treatment for a respiratory infection and underwent continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). They said the King's pulse rate, blood pressure and respiratory rate were normal. 

Based on checks of his blood and phlegm, the severity of the infection was found to have subsided, according to the Bureau's 33rd statement on his admission at the hospital. 

Some liquid was found in the King's lung based on an X-ray, while his urine was still minimal. 

Doctors continue to administer antibiotics and the CRRT treatment.
