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.

MJ had talent, leslie? When he tried to sing, he sounded like a castrated leprachaun.

Thank you for the information. It makes sense that the O2 levels would drop very quickly after death, but it was something I didn't know.

I heard Murray was going to show videos of Michael high for his defense and I really don't see how videos like that would really help Murray's defense. Wouldn't that do damage to his defense showing that he knew Michael had a drug problem and he choose to treat him and give him drugs he (supposedly) requested. I mean since when are doctors legally able to be celebs fast food joints for drugs? They just order it up and the doctor gives it to them, service with a smile? Personally, I don't know if Michael was a raging addict or even if he was an addict. I would like to think he was just this amazing talented guy that had problems sleeping and with some physical pain who made some bad choices (unfortunately) ending with having Dr Murray as a doctor.

Gone too soon    

I´m from Europe. 300 years ago we used to have witchhunts. Those innocent women were put on a stake to be burned alive (just imagine the agony and pain!)In order to determine their guilt they were tied up and thrown in a lake. If they floated, it was seen as evidence of them being witches. If they sank, they were innocent. (But obviously drowned).

Those women were most often strong and independent. Many of them were beautiful and intelligent (envy). Some of them had a slightly different personality, others would be looners OR "preached" a different message than the priests did and would become TOO popular. So the village people fabricated false rumours because of their own shortcomings.

MJ was beautiful, independant and succesful. But he was different. Media tied him to the stake and put a match to the twigs 30 years ago to make him slowly burn to death. (And you wonder why he used medication?) Proving his innocence was hopeless, he would sink (mentally) or be found guilty again.

We have come nowhere since those witchhunts.
The world killed Michael Jackson.
Will we ever learn??!

if it wasn't talent LUCKY CHARMS then why did he sell so many albums and why does he have so many fans? In fact if not talent then why would he be called the king of pop?

Yeah, Dr. Murray made one little mistake. who doesn't make a mistake. Dr's make mistakes all the time. Slap on the guy on the wrist and let's move on. MJ obviously wanted the drugs anyway. he is a good doctor and smart man, leave the guy alone, stop looking for a scapegoat.

I say again. A verdict of not guilty does not mean innocent. It means that the prosecution failed to meet their burden of proof which is guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

After the criminal trial, some jurors said on camera that they felt that MJ probably had molested children in the past but that the prosecution hadn't met their burden of proof in this particular case.

9. Don't you think people know that? This isn't about what you think. It's about his family and children. You know what to do if YOU want to get over it.

Hopefully this case will do more than get justice for Jackson - and shut the Dr Feelgood industry down!

LOL on this being a headliner today ... this is one of the things we have been beotching about since the Murray story broke. He LIED so his story is b.s. IF he was truly trying to save MJ he would have and he knew had to give the emg svs response team all the info including what medications were given. How to do possibly treat or counter a drug if you do not know which one the pt has taken that put him there. Could it have saved him, hellz no he had been dead too long but it shows where Murrays mind was and that his intent was on self preservation.

If asked; would you be happier with a sleepless night or to not be living?; The answer would always be 'I'll take the sleepless night.'

Dr. Murray as a doctor should have refussed to participate in the proceedures he conducted.
He could have notified the authorities but instead he took a chance on keeping his golden goose happy.

Now he belongs in prison.

obviously you have never suffered from mind numbing insomnia. First I heard of propofol I thought oh yeah I would dig that, in a hospital monitored, to get some solid zZZ's just once.


The doc is an arrogant fool and cop reports showed there was oxygen and a pulse ox in a closet in the room next door so he could not be bothered to use them. It also states there was no machine for the IV so he did a manual drip of a drug as potent as propofol....I would say the IV calibration and the pulse ox could have at least alerted doc "been here done this" issues were compounding on him.

I think he hosed up the drip, he blew off using the pulse ox that was avail and for X reasons did not attend his patient. When he noted him dead he made several cya phone calls then began the doting dr on an oh shnizt skit.
