People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray

UCLA Doc:

Murray Lost Track of Time

10/3/2011 11:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UCLA Cardiologist -- Dr. Thao Nguyen Testifies
Updated 10/03/11 at 11:48 AM

1003_conrad_witness_04Dr. Thao Nguyen -- the cardiologist who was called into MJ's trauma room -- said Dr. Murray was fuzzy on the crucial moments leading up to MJ's death, saying, Murray  "did not have any concept of time."

She said Murray couldn't remember when he administered Lorazepam, nor the moment MJ stopped breathing ... because, as he told her, he didn't have a watch.

But Dr. Joanne Pashard, a Houston doctor, testified that on the morning of MJ's death, she called Murray asking him about one of his patients, who was about to undergo surgery in Texas. She said Murray had no problem recalling detailed information about the patient.

Prosecutors then called on Antoinette Gille -- a volunteer at Murray's office in Las Vegas -- who said she talked to Murray at 8:49 the morning of June 25... and Bridgette Morgan  -- one of Murray's three girlfriends.  Morgan said she called Murray at 11:26 am on June 25. 

Prosecutors are trying to show Murray was distracted and inattentive in the moments before MJ went into serious distress.

She was my doctor a few months ago, after I suffered a heart attack...She's apparently, very intelligent and other doctors at UCLA said I should take her medical advice over their own.

I did watch the trial today LIVE on TMZ!

It was very interesting. The Prosecutor called about 4 or 5 people and they said nothing negative about Dr Conrad Murray. The Defense gets up and asks a question. "you were impressed that the doctor knew your patient without having to refer to file?" The the doctor said "YES, it's unusual for a Doctor to do that".

A number of the people on cross said Dr Conrad Murray was a very kind and considerate Doctor. Taking time with each patient to get to know the patient and family.

I'm looking at Dr. Conrad Murray and I'm thinking as his head is down, "this guy is PRAYING, and I felt a very devotional feeling coming from him".

I was dumb struck, all the people that were on the stand against him, didn't touch this man. Even former patients were "sad" that the doctor was taking time off to be with MJ.

I believe that MJ cared about this Doctor and trusted him, and Dr Murray cared deeply about MJ. I am sure the Doctor was devastated by MJ dieing.

I just wish all these crazy MJ fans would listen with OPEN mind to the trial and let both sides be heard before passing judgement.

The GOOD Doctor's reputation has been ruined by the Jackson Family , Nancy Grace and Main Stream Media. You don't hear Dr. Conrad's side at all in Media.

But you will, so wait and watch.

All you people JUDGING this Doctor, just be careful, because you could be Judging a very KIND and Spiritual Person.

It must be a nightmare what has happened to this GOOD Doctor the last 2 years. You MJ fans are venting on the wrong guy. I believe MJ could have taken meds himself that morning because what the doctor was giving him wasn't working. The doctor didn't know MJ would do that. How is this Doctor to blame.
As to the Drug the Doctor was giving him, WAIT, because you are only hearing so far from Hospital Doctors and not Doctors out in the field. Or dentists that also use that drug. The DA office leaks like crazy and they are responsible for all the misinformation in the MEDIA.

The Defense team is doing a WONDERFUL JOB and the DA is doing a lousy job. I can't see anything but a not guilty from the facts presented .

Someone said if Dr. Thao Nguyen was Michael Jackson's Dr., he would be alive today. Yes, because she would have got him in rehab and therapy.

What's disturbing is she was only called to help was because MJ was a VIP.

Dr Thay Nugyen came across as a lady and a professional doctor.

Conrad is a jerk, and only interested in himself.

Dr Nguyen came across as knowing what she talked about, even in spite of the dumb defense lawyer trying to confuse her!!

Dr. Njuyen was amazing. She looks really cool too as if she just walked off of a Star Trek episode. Her clarity, confidence, and professionalism are the polar opposite of Dr. Murray. He administered Propofol in a non-medical setting without the proper eqipment. His timeline is fuzzy except for the fact that he delayed for 20 minutes to call 911. He administred CPR incorrectly as even a first year medical student would know the basics of. He communicated with several people incomplete or downright inaccurate information about the drugs in MJ's system when they were trying to save him. He tried to hide the drugs and get others to help him.

This is much worse than medical malpractice, it's criminal. Dr. Murray's decisions preceding, during, and after MJ's death lead to only one reasonable verdict. This is a slam dunk case for the prosecution.

How convinient for him,he could have said "i was TOO BUSY talking on my cell phone".

But Dr. Joanne Pashard, a Houston doctor, testified that on the morning of MJ's death, she called Murray asking him about one of his patients, who was about to undergo surgery in Texas. She said Murray had no problem recalling detailed information about the patient.

That was when the phone calls were over.

Prosecutors are suggesting Murray was distracted and inattentive on the morning MJ died.

Prosecutors aren't suggesting anything.The facts speak for themselves.

John:
You are looking at this trial through your heart and not through the eyes of the law. CM's personality is not being judged in this courtroom. This is about a doctor who lied continuously and breached his duty of the medical oath by neglecting his patient as assuming the role of an anesthesiologist for which he wasn't trained or certified resulting in the death of another human being.
