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.

Michael Jackson's death has now been ruled a suicide. Apparently doctors told him that the only way he could get whiter is if he died.

Why did MJ run down to the local clothing store? He heard that boys' pants were half off.

i hope the punishment fits the crime in the end...all this just doesnt add up to 4 years, someone's got it wrong. It should be more like 20. I thought i heard they were gona set an example out of this for doctors who work with celebs? whatever happened to that?
and 20 years isnt setting an example, that just the way it should be

Q: Why did Michael Jackson die on the same day as Farrah Fawcett?
A: He didn’t want her to be the only white woman grabbing all the headlines.

#1-your question about blood oxygen saturations (blood O2 sats)-
When we breathe, O2 is pumped through the body via the blood. The pumping of the heart distributes the blood and O2 throughout the body. When respirations begin to decrease, the O2 sats begin to fall because not enough O2 is being taken into the lungs to be picked up by the blood and carried through the body. If MJ had flatlined, no O2 sat would register. He would be cyanotic (lips, skin a bluish-gray or ashen color) because the oxygenated blood is what helps us to have a more "alive" color ("pinking" up). Yes...sats do fall rather quickly.

If Murray was idiotic enough to agree to administering Propofol to MJ, the moment he said "yes" he became responsible for his care and well-being. And to intentionally give false, inaccurate report to EMS is highly unethical. (As well as everything else-taking lg amts of $$ to administer a med he was not licensed or trained to use, to not have proper equipment for monitoring vital signs and O2 sats....sorry the list of what be did RIGHT is surely MUCH shorter!)
And no MJ would not necessarily died under another Dr.'s care. Even though they would also be doing wrong by administering the Propofol, maybe they would have had enough sense to monitor him properly.

In memory of MJ’s death, McDonald’s is coming out with the new “McJackson”. It’s 50 year old meat between 12 year old buns.

I don't know why there are so many hateful and disgusting people out there who keep on saying the most horrible things about Michael. He was a humble and good human being. Everyone has faults and so did he, it does not mean you people have to crusify him everytime something comes up about him. Why don't you take a look at yourself in the f***ing mirror first!!! Cause I know for a fact that you guys all got problems too! Nobody is perfect, but the least you can do for all you guys talking so much s**t about him is remember he was a human being. At least he tried to help people and he made a difference for millions of people out there. Grow up!

WACKO JACKO was also a LIAR. he lied about many many many things. he only admitted to having two nose jobs and that's all in terms of plastic surgery when it is OBVIOUS to anyone that he had MASSIVE amounts of plastic surgery which deformed his appearance. DON'T make Michael jackson out to be this angel. he was a liar as well. Also what difference does it make if the person on the phone said it was WACKO JACKO or not? Everyone regardless of who they are should deserve the ambulance to come in the same time it would take them regardless of if they are a normal person or a drugged out freak of a celebrity like MJ.
