George Michaels Condition Worsens

Doctors treating singer George Michael on the 13th floor of the Vienna
AKH general hospital say his condition has worsened overnight.

was hospitalized on Monday after a doctor was called to his suite at
the Hotel imperial in Vienna’s posh first district and diagnosed
breathing difficulties.

He was taken by ambulance to the city’s
top Rudolfiner private hospital in the 19th district of the city, where a
decision was taken to move him to the main general hospital – the AKH.

It is believed it
was decided that the singer’s condition was so acute that it would be
better if he was moved to the AKH – the biggest in Europe and where many
of the continent’s top medical experts are based because of the
advanced facilities it offers.

On Thursday afternoon he was fitted into a special
full-body bed designed to keep all the pressure off his lungs and to
help them to function – so far without any sign of improvement.

doctor from the nearby Otto Wagner Hospital, Norbert Vetter, said that
the reason a person with a lung problem was being treated in the cardiac
unit probably lay in the fact that if there was a lung problem – and
not enough oxygen being taken into the body – then that could affect the
heart especially if the heart had already been damaged in some way. He
added in the worst case the heart could cease to function.

Insiders at the facility say he is getting much worse.
