CAIRO - Medical officials say Hosni Mubarak's condition has stabilized after the former president slipped in an out of consciousness over the past 24 hours.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media, said the 84-year old Mubarak was administered oxygen to aid his breathing once on Tuesday. They say they are monitoring his heart and blood pressure closely.

There have been conflicting reports about Mubarak's condition since a court convicted him on June 2 of failing to prevent the killings of protesters in the uprising that ousted him last year and sentenced him to life in prison. Doctors said a defibrillator was used on Mubarak twice on Monday.
