Conrad Murray - Michael Was Alive at UCLA

3/30/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned doctors who worked on Michael Jackson at the UCLA Medical Center ran two EKGs on the singer, and at least one doctor who interpreted the results claims there was heart rhythmic activity both times.

Michael Jackson and Dr. Conrad Murray
Furthermore, sources tell TMZ Dr. Conrad Murray insists he was able to restart Jackson's heart at the singer's home before paramedics arrived and then maintained heart activity in the ambulance.

Dr. Murray's evaluation contradicts paramedics at the scene who wanted to take Jackson to the morgue, not UCLA, because they believed he was dead.

It also contradicts Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, who tells TMZ he believes Jackson was dead even before paramedics arrived at the house. Oxman says the weak pulse detected at UCLA was in reaction to resuscitation efforts.

We're told the criminal case is shaping up as a legal war between medical experts, who will be interpreting medical tests and charts in various ways -- always confusing for a jury.

Really??? Michael was alive. So they got some activity at UCLA???

Poor Michaels heart may have skipped a couple of beats, however the lack of oxygen to his brain would have deemed him brain dead.

Your clutching at straws Murray. You killed him.

How come they didn't stab him in the chest with a syringe full of adrenaline like they did to the woman in Pulp Fiction?

So there was - on and off - pulse at Carolwood Dr, but basically, Michael was flatlined. At UCLA they got his heart going for a while again, but couldn't keep it going. And they couldn't because Michael was in reality dead. They could not reverse it. Dying can be a longish process.

Bottom line is still that Conrad Murray's reckless actions caused Michael Jackson's death.

MJ couldn't ever act in another successful movie because he he lost his perfect nose & big, cute smile.
Sorry to be honest. When he repeatedly had injections to fill out his emaciated face & nose (MJ looked like a sickly mental patient) to prove he was ok for a concert comeback, he knew he was in deep trouble. He convinced himself that useless Propofol propped him up.

He didn't sell Invincible ego-boosting CDs in 2002, after he spent tons of special time donating charity money & gifts to Chandler & Arviso. It backfired in his face when he mindlessly begged for love from the idiotic families. He didn't sing any song beside You Rock My World.
Poor 'bald-headed, anorexic' Gavin Arviso made MJ SO nurturing like Janet Arviso. That was long after MJ lost touch with reality in the 1990s, when he welcomed butchers for plastic surgeons & then overdosed on unnecessary medication.

Whether Michael was dead or alive at arrival the fact is he is dead now as a result of what he was given. Even if he managed to resuscitate him I doubt there'd have been much left of Michael to bring back, he'd have been comatose and possibly brain damaged aswell as other internal organ damage or failure.

Had an ambulance been called right away when Murray saw Michael go into cardiac arrest he may have possibly survived. I believe Murray went into a panic and attempted to resuscitate Michael himself to try not to raise any alarms and hide evidence that could convict him when he realised he wasn't able to revive him.

murray lawyered up fast. Lawyer gives advice nr1)" Idid nothing wrong" and stick to it no matter what. But it did not work.
Advice nr 2)Inrtoduce as much confusion as possible;Michael was re
suscitated at UCLA.
murray practised grand malpractice for too long to send Michael into hospital for needed diagnostic tests, such as for SLE and ILD.
SLE=systemic lupus erythematosis ILD= interstitia lung disease.
---Imagine the following scenario:Michael gets resuscitated,but OH
he is braindead. Now needs continuos artficial breathing , tube to feed him, tube in urethra,iv solutions to hydrate+ electrolyte control, nappies.And we can continue on this blog for years to come.

SLE has a multitude of symptoms; sharp chestpain, musle and joint pain, fatigue etc etc.He needed painkillers and that carries the risk of addiction.He had no pain killers in his body at autopsy.
Amount of propofol at autopsy and murrays statement,2.5 mg! does not match.Who here has a vested interest? Mr. Alvarez has no vested interest either. murray has/had an MD attatched to his name and is therefor ultimately responsible.

ILD and any lungdisease should be in every cariologists"backyard"
knowledge.The heart and lungs work is so closely intertwined that
you cannot have a probem w. one without the other.A very sudden
malfunction beeing an exeption.

Curiouser & curiouser...WHY NOW?!? How is it possible that a virtually unknown man is EXCLUSIVELY responsible for ALL this hullabaloo? But then again, a man-on-the-noose would try ANYTHING & EVERYTHING, I suppose. But, why are the likes of TMZ hell-bent to try to push his interests this far? Surely "THIS" can't just be about him?!? But when trashy tabloids are involved, there is often a foul odour usually...
