France, December 31, 2013
The medical team caring for the seven-time Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher works every minute to save the former pilot, who suffered a blow in his head while skiing in the French Alps on Sunday.
The German driver experienced a slight improvement after the surgery to relieve intracranial pressure.
Schumacher spent the second night admitted in the University Hospital of Grenoble, in France, in an induced coma after an operation that doctors performed to his brain to relieve pressure.
According to the leader of anesthesiologists Jean -Francois Payen, the next 48 hours will be crucial: “He’s in critical condition… His condition is very serious.”
“At the moment, we cannot predict the future of Michael Schumacher but the situation is better controlled than yesterday.”
A new scanner practiced Tuesday morning revealed a ‘ slight improvement ‘ in the patient, who was ‘relatively stable’, according to doctors.
And that: “The next few hours are crucial.”
The manager of the pilot, Sabine Kehm, said: “His family, his wife Corinna, his daughter Gina Maria and his son Mick are shocked”.
