This Wouldn’t Be It… Michael Jackson could be still alive.
Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, idol of millions of ardent fans died on June 25, 2009 because of propofol intoxication. His personal doctor, Conrad Murray, said he found Jackson in his room, not breathing, but with a weak pulse, and that he gave CPR on his bed. Murray called 911 at 12: 20 p.m. and Jackson was treated by paramedics. He was taken to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and pronounced dead not long later. Two months later, on August 28, 2009, the Los Angeles County Coroner stated that Jackson’s death was a homicide as before his death, Jackson reportedly had been given propofol, simultaneously with two anti-anxiety benzodiazepines. Law enforcement agencies investigated Conrad Murray. On February 8, 2010, Murray pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter, and was set free after providing $75,000 bail. His trial started on September 27, 2011.
Cardiologist Dr Alon Steinberg listed six ‘extreme deviations’ in Conrad Murray’s treatment that had led to Jackson’s death. He said jurors at Los Angeles Superior Court:
If these deviations didn’t happen, Mr Jackson could have been alive.”
The cardiologist shared his expert review conclusions carried for the California Medical Board by him.
Prompted by prosecutors, he described Murray’s ‘bizarre’ behavior when he attempted to revive Jackson after he stopped breathing on June 25, 2009 and his bundle of slip-ups in treating the star.
So, Dr Alon Steinberg told the court that Jackson’s doctor:
First, should have avoided using Propofol, a strong hospital anesthetic for treating Jackson’s chronic insomnia;
Second, should not have given Jackson Propofol without the appropriate and expedient medical personnel, equipment, or back-up;
Third, was not ready for any urgent or special case;
Fourth, roughly acted after Jackson stopped breathing, ‘inexcusably’ carrying out CPR(Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) with one hand on a bed. He should have got air into Jackson’s lungs instead of giving unnecessary CPR as the star’s heart was still beating;
Fifth, temporized to call 911;
And sixth, did not write any medical comments while the emergency case.
The cardiologist added:
All these extreme deviations, giving Propofol in the wrong setting without proper equipment or personnel, not making proper preparations, not calling 911 in a timely manner, not keeping records, all directly impacted on Mr Jackson’s life.”
When you monitor a patient you never leave their side, especially after giving them Propofol. It’s like leaving a baby that’s sleeping on your kitchen counter top. You would never do it because there is a chance the baby could wake up and fall off or grab a knife or something. You just don’t do it.’
Conrad Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter by giving Jackson a fatal dose of Propofol against his insomnia.
But Dr Steinberg listed the medical equipment Murray should have had on hand for dealing with a potential emergency. But the cardiologist criticised Murray for calling an assistant rather than an ambulance, not having proper medical equipment, a significant delay.
Every minute counts,”he added.
Dr Steinberg was testifying after Dr Christopher Rogers, the Los Angeles Deputy Medical Examiner, insisted Jackson could not have killed himself by self-taking Propofol. He told jurors that the circumstances of Jackson’s death contradict the claim by Murray’s lawyers that the singer was to blame for his own death.
In order for Mr Jackson to have administered the Propofol to himself, you would have to assume he woke up and although he was under the influence of Propofol and other sedatives, he was somehow able to administer Propofol to himself. Then he stops breathing and all this takes place in a two-minute period of time. To me, that scenario seems less reasonable.
said Dr Rogers.”
Dr Steinberg insisted that Jackson’s life could have been saved if Murray called 911 the moment he found out the star had stopped to breath.
‘He was definitely savable at that point. There was a delay in calling 911. If they had got there six minutes later Mr Jackson would still be alive. He had a heart pressure and the heart was getting excited and there wasn’t enough oxygen. If he had all the help and equipment that he didn’t have, Dr Murray could probably have saved Mr Jackson at that point. He should never have started chest compressions. He should have called 911. Obviously, waiting didn’t work.
He added that Murray’s use of Propofol was unethical and untested and that he’d never heard of Propofol use out of hospital.
The case continues.
It’s obvious that probably we’ll ever find out how or why Michael Jackson died. The only thing we know that we lost him, the King of Pop… RIP, Michael…
