Thai Princess Who Collapsed Reportedly Has Her Organs Supported by Equipment & Medication

Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendira Debyavati, who is the eldest child of Thailand’s King, is currently still in the hospital after being admitted last week on 14 Dec.

The Thai princess, aged 44, passed out during a military dog training session in the Pak Chong district.

Upon passing out, she was brought to a nearby hospital to stabilised her condition. She was then flown via a helicopter to Bangkok’s King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, according to the palace.

Condition Stable at the Moment

In an update given by the royal palace on 19 Dec, it is known that the Thai Princess’s condition is stabilised “at some level”.

The long-awaited update did not disclose what the Thai Princess is going through but did say that the use of medication and various medical equipment is being used to support the functioning of her lungs, heart and kidneys.

The princess’s heartbeat is currently controlled by the use of medication, while test reports indicate that her heart is still not pumping normally.

An x-ray scan shows that there is nothing abnormal with her heart.

It is also mentioned in the statement that the Thai Princess’s condition is being closely monitored.

Prayers for the Princess

After the news of the princess’s hospitalisation broke, many religious activities and prayer sessions were held around the nation.

Citizens were also seen visiting the building set aside at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital to pay tributes to the princess.

Campaigns for the Rights of Prisoners

The Thai Princess is a single child from the King’s first marraige. She is the oldest of the current King’s seven children.

She is expected to be one of the few candidates other than her brother, Prince Dipangkorn Rasmijoti, to take over her father’s throne in the future.

The princess created and currently runs the “Kamlangjai”, otherwise known as the “Inspire” project.

The project’s purpose is to constantly reach out to incarcerated Thai women, including pregnant inmates and their babies, to provide them assurance that they will be given adequate assistance to prepare them to re-enter society upon release.

The princess was also a key figure in persuading the Thai government to submit a resolution to the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice.

The resolution detailed the vulnerability of women incarcerated in a prison system built for men.

Her efforts led to the United Nations’ adoption of the “Bangkok Rules”, which is the first set of international guidelines that address the treatment of imprisoned women.
