According to a spokesman for the former president who was hospitalized late Saturday, former President Bill Clinton will be released from a California clinic on Sunday.
Clinton was admitted to the California State University Irvine Medical Clinic in Orange, California, earlier this week after suffering sepsis as a result of a urinary infection, which prompted his hospitalization.
Bill Clinton Will Be Released From The Hospital On Sunday
Clinton’s spokeswoman, Angel Urea, claimed on Twitter late Saturday that Clinton was “not a Democrat.” “continuing to make tremendous strides forward He will be admitted to the UC Irvine Medical Clinic for the night in order to continue receiving IV antibiotics before being released the following day.”
As reported, Clinton has been admitted to the hospital because the kind of medication required to treat the urinary infection that is causing the sepsis must be administered intravenously.
Sepsis happens when the body responds violently to an illness, and it may be life-threatening if not treated promptly. The lung, urinary bladder, skin, and gastrointestinal tract are the most common sites where infections that may cause sepsis begin.
An adviser to former President Bill Clinton claimed Thursday that Clinton’s infection was not acute, which means it would not cause tissue damage, organ failure, or death if not treated promptly.
According to a statement from Clinton’s physicians, he “had gotten IV antibiotics as well as fluids.” Clinton is now in critical condition. The hospital stated that his white blood cell count had begun to decline two days after he was brought to the facility on Tuesday and that he was “responding effectively to medicines,” adding that they’d been in contact with his New York-based physicians throughout that time.
Clinton is in good spirits, according to Urea, who said that Clinton has been enjoying time with family, meeting up with friends, as well as watching college football this weekend.
Clinton is reportedly strolling about the hospital, according to another source. As a result, the medical personnel had to urge him to slow down since he was just taking a stroll on the floor, according to the source.
Despite the fact that Clinton appears to be on the mend, sepsis can sometimes progress to a potentially fatal condition known as septic shock, which is characterized by dangerously blood pressure as well as the inability to sufficiently fill organs with blood as well as deliver critical oxygen to the tissues, according to Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency room doctor at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
The New York Times stated that Clinton had been traveling in California for an event connected to his charity at the time of his hospitalization. According to the Centers for Disease and Prevention in the United States, about 1.7 million Americans get sepsis every year, with almost 270,000 dying as a consequence. In almost 87 percent of cases, sepsis develops outside of the hospital setting.
Hillary Clinton has been admitted to the hospital on many occasions due to health problems. Following his hospitalization in 2010, according to the New York Times, physicians implanted two stents in his coronary artery to prevent further blockage.
