We reposted that Rick Ross was urgently taken to the hospital because he was in a severe health condition. Here’s what an expert has to say about his health issue.
Hollywood Life discussed with Dr. Tanya Dutta who is a well-known cardiologist at Westchester Medical Center.
She talked about Rick’s severe condition after it was reported that he is now placed on life support.
‘Sometimes if pneumonia is so bad, not enough oxygen is making it into the bloodstream through the lungs,’ Dr. Dutta said.
‘The ECMO machine will take the place of your lungs until they improve and distribute oxygen into the bloodstream,’ she continued.
The doctor also stated that he might remain on life support for more weeks, but usually, doctors try to keep patients on it for as short as possible because they have to be unconscious for this treatment.
The doctor also said that the fact that Rick is on the machine shows that he is suffering from the most severe form of pneumonia.
‘Sometimes people who are young can be hit very hard by a bacterial infection, and then your body also activates such an overwhelming immune response’ Dr. Dutta added. ‘It can make your condition worse.’
Before Rick was taken to the hospital, he was found in a severe condition in his home. He was reportedly found by someone ‘slobbing at the mouth.’
The doctor also sad that this foaming symptom is due to the fact that his lungs were extraordinarily injured and he was struggling to breathe.
His family denied the fact that his condition is this severe, but we wish him all the necessary strength to get better, and we’ll keep you posted on his health.
