Soeharto`s life expectancy only 50 percent
Former president Soeharto`s life expectancy is only 50 percent, Head of the Presidential Medical Team, Mardjo Soebiandono, said at Pertamina Hospital here Sunday.
Soeharto`s health condition has been deteriorating since Sunday morning as his blood pressure has dropped and the function of his heart and lung has decreased.
There is a hemodynamic irregularity as the blood pressure drops to 80-90/40 mm Hg and a ventilator is still used to help Soeharto breathe, he said, the medical team was still also trying to increase his hemoglobin level by blood trasfusion.
He said all efforts have been made to deal with Soeharto`s deteriorating health by clearing his respiratory tract.
"It is concluded that irregularites are occuring in almost all Soeharto`s organs making him in a critical condition compared to that on last Friday (Jan 11) when his condition was at the lowest point," he said.
