    Michael Jackson's doctor 'failed to tell paramedics about propofol'

    Post by Smooth Criminal on Mon Mar 22, 2010 7:44 am

    Michael Jackson's personal physician Dr Conrad Murray failed to tell paramedics at the scene that he had administered the powerful painkiller propofol to the singer, according to a report.

    The paramedics report, published by the News of the World, may be used by prosecutors who have charged Dr Murray with involuntary manslaughter over the singer's death on June 25. Dr Murray has pleaded not guilty.

    According to the Emergency Service Medical Report, the singer had already flat-lined by the time paramedics arrived at his home but desperate attempts were made to revive him and Dr Murray insisted he be taken to hospital

    There were two attempts to restart his heart at his home and a third in the ambulance on the way to hospital.

    The report showed that when paramedics arrived Dr Murray was performing CPR and had attached an intravenous drip to Jackson's left leg, but the singer had no blood pressure or pulse and his pupils were dilated.

    Paramedics twice used the drugs epinephrine and atropine to try to start the heart. They also put a tube in his throat to try to re-start breathing, and injected bicarbonate into his neck.

    The attempts failed and he was taken to hospital by ambulance with further life saving attempts made on the way.

    According to the report, Dr Murray told paramedics Jackson had taken the sedative lorazepam and fluids to rehydrate him after a sleepless night.

    Dr Murray later told police that he had also given Jackson propofol to help him sleep.

    The Los Angeles coroner cited propofol as the cause of Jackson's death, with other drugs as contributing factors.

    Propofol, usually given before surgery, is supposed to be administered by a professional anaesthetist in a medical environment Dr Murray's lead counsel, Ed Chernoff, has said that nothing the doctor gave Jackson should have killed him.


    If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.

    Personally i believe that MJ's doctor should go to jail because he should never have given MJ illegal medicine and even if MJ wanted to use it he WAS his doctor Mad Crying or Very sad at the same time.
