Royal Household Bureau: HM the King’s condition improves


BANGKOK, 11 August 2015 – According to the Bureau of the Royal Household, His Majesty the King is recuperating at Siriraj Hospital as the level of cerebrospinal fluid has decreased and lung inflammation is no longer found.

Royal physicians reported that they previously conducted a thorough examination of the health of His Majesty the King at Siriraj Hospital and discovered an increased level of cerebrospinal fluid in his brain. As a solution, they requested royal permission to adjust the discharge of the fluid and a CT scan performed in July indicated that the fluid was reducing gradually.

During his stay at the hospital, His Majesty has also periodically developed high fever, with increased phlegm and faster breathing and heartbeat. Such conditions are believed to have resulted from lung inflammation found earlier. The royal doctors have thus provided His Majesty with chest physical therapy, along with oxygen and mucolytics to help dissolve the mucus.

The latest investigations show no inflammation in the lungs, normal heart rate and blood pressure, and decreased cerebrospinal fluid. The royal physicians will continue to give chest physical therapy to His Majesty until the level of phlegm returns to normal.
