Conrad Murray Trial, Michael Jackson died because Dr. Conrad Murray did not realize that his patient had stopped breathing while attached to an intravenous drip of propofol anesthetic surgery, an anesthesiologist expert testified Thursday.
Dr. Steven Shafer, probably the last witness before the prosecution is based on the manslaughter trial of Dr. Murray, Murray said he would have realized that Jackson had stopped breathing around 11:45 am on 25 in June 2009.
“When you’re there, you see, you know,” said Shafer.
Phone records and testimony show that Murray was on the phone with one of their clinics, the patient, and then a friend about the time Shafer calculates the oxygen in the lungs of Jackson sold out, what your heart stops beating.
“If I had been with Conrad Murray Michael Jackson during this period of time, have seen the slow breathing and commitment to the airflow in the lungs of Michael Jackson, and could easily have turned off the propofol infusion,” said Shafer .
Murray could have easily cleared then Jackson’s airway breathing and returned to raise his chin, he said.
Testimony before the paramedics and emergency physicians, said Jackson was clinically dead at the time an ambulance arrived at his home in Los Angeles pop icon about half an hour after Murray realized there was a problem .
The last three experts for the prosecution, all medical experts, Murray study focused on the science surrounding the death of Jackson, in contrast to earlier testimony from friends and employees of Murray Jackson.
After the defense cross-examination of Shafer on Friday afternoon, Murray’s lawyers start calling witnesses, including his own expert anesthesiology.
Shafer shown to the jury that he believed Murray propofol infusion created by hanging a bottle of 100 milliliters of a stand with tubes attached that led to a port of the catheter in the left leg of Jackson.
“This is the only scenario that could lead” to produce the high blood level of propofol Jackson found during his autopsy, said Shafer.
“This fits with all data in this case, and I have no knowledge of any fact that is consistent,” he said.
Shafer considered and ruled out other scenarios, including Jackson himself, or injection with propofol Murray administering a lethal dose with a syringe. Projections of a computer model could not identify a scenario that would duplicate the high levels found, he said.
