Im sorry to hear about your uncle. I can give you some information about your uncle which you can then relay to the doctors treating him, let me know if that works for you. Also if you are agreeable to this then i would need some additional information like what is his conscious level? Does he have any infections right now? Also is he on mechanical ventilatory support?
Unfortunately i wont be able to do a conference call as i am in the hospital right now
Mannitol is a drug used to reduce the pressure in the brain, it is not an antibiotic it is infact a osmotic diuretic
Regarding the ventilatory support, it would open up a couple of options in his management.
Let me know if i should proceed with suggestions regarding his management
Well i will be busy all day today (Tuesday) so it will be difficult for me to get into a call. But i will opt out so you can find an expert who is free and able to talk to the doctors in india. Dont reply to this message as that will lock the question back to me. Another expert should be along shortly to help you out.
