The expert team of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), along with a UK-based specialist, who had earlier examined Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, on Thursday visited Chennai's Apollo Hospital again.

Hospital sources said international specialist and consultant from Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London, Dr Richard Beale, and the AIIMS team, comprising Dr G Khilnani, Professor of Department of Pulmonology Medicine, Dr Anjan Trikha, Professor of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care, and Dr Nitish Nayak, Professor of Department of Cardiology, visited the hospital in the afternoon.

The expert panel, during its earlier visit to the hospital on 6 October, had drawn up a detailed medical management plan to treat the 68-year-old AIADMK supremo. During its last visit, the team had held detailed deliberations on the treatment protocol provided to Jayalalithaa.

On 9 and 10 October, Khilnani had visited the hospital and examined the chief minister.

An earlier press release from the hospital had said, he had discussions with the hospital's expert panel and had "concurred with the present line of treatment" being given to the Chief Minister.

Jayalalithaa continues to be under treatment and "is being constantly monitored by the intensivists and other consultants in the expert panel", it had said.

Necessary respiratory support, antibiotics, nutrition, supportive therapy and passive physiotherapy were being given to her, it had added.

Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital on 22 September after she complained of fever and dehydration.
