Dr. Conrad Murray Withheld Info About Propofol

3/21/2010 9:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A paramedic report in the Michael Jackson case reportedly says Dr. Conrad Murray withheld a key fact from the EMTs -- that he had administered Propofol to the singer.

The report, published by News of the World, states what TMZ has previously reported -- that paramedics felt Jackson was dead when they got to the singer's home but Dr. Murray, as the senior medical professional present, demanded that Jackson be taken to the hospital.

According to the report, Jackson had flatlined by the time paramedics arrived at the house, and he had no blood pressure, pulse or breath, and his pupils were dilated.

According to the report, Dr. Murray told paramedics Jackson was exhausted because he couldn't fall asleep and he had given Jackson Lorazepam -- a sedative. Omitting the fact that Dr. Murray gave Jackson Propofol is no doubt something the paramedics should have known about and will almost certainly be used by prosecutors in the trial.

1. So, for doctors and nurses that were commenting on Jackson's death in the months following: If normal oxygen in the blood is between 93 and 100 and there was zero oxygen in Jackson's blood, does that mean Jackson died a while earlier? Does the oxygen in the blood fall immediately?

The body's oxygen level drops immediately when the lungs and heart cease to function.

danger baby    

This isn't news. We've known since last summer that Murray didn't own up to using Propofol, not with the paramedics, and not with the doctors. I can't believe TMZ actually quoted New of the World, one of Britain's biggest tabloids know for the worst kind of sensationalism and smut.

On with the trial. I can't wait for the defense to drag MJ's name through the mud. The trial is going to make for one h*ll of a good book.

see this is actually something I thought about months ago. I don't know why, but I think I read somewhere Murray didn't tell the ER doctors about giving Michael propofrol before he ran from the hospital. I don't understand why this would be a tough case or even why the charge is just manslaughter. I mean even if Michael was a raging drug addict that would seem to go against the doctor, wouldn't it? I mean he would be give a drug (improperly) to a known drug addict right? When I ask Harvey about this on TMZ live he never answers. To all those people saying Michael would have got it from somewhere else, Well we will never know if he would have or not since he isn't with us anymore. If you follow that logic then every drug deal in prison should be released because hey their customers would have got it from somewhere else. Doesn't make much sense does it? still missingmj

Q: What's the difference between Michael Jackson and a grocery bag?
A: One is white, made out of plastic, and dangerous for kids to play with and the other you carry your groceries in

Since Michael Jackson is 99% plastic, they are going to melt him down and turn him into lego blocks so that little kids can play with him for a change.
