Michael Jackson Drug, A greater number of patients asked about propofol anesthesia drugs, according to the Associated Press. Since the “milk of amnesia” was blamed for the death of pop star Michael Jackson, the patients were suddenly asking questions about medical drug.
“You will not believe how many people with their eyes wide open I ask, ‘Will you give me the drug Michael Jackson” They are scared to death, “president of the State Society of Anesthesiologists Dr. HA Tillman Hein told the Associated Press.
According to Hein, propofol has been used for surgeries and other procedures for over 20 years and is safe when monitored by trained professionals in a hospital or clinic.
Although the news of the drug became public after the death of the king of pop, the circumstances are rare.
Authorities said before Jackson’s death, less than 10 percent of patients asked about propofol. Now, more than half of patients are concerned about what guarantees are in place up if problems occur.
“It’s important to have this conversation so that people have no fear,” said Dr. John Dombrowski who heads the Washington Pain Center Private The Associated Press.
When propofol expert Dr. Steven Shafer of Columbia University testified at the trial of Conrad Murray on Wednesday, he wanted to restore public trust in physicians using propofol, which he called “an excellent drug” when properly administered.
According to reports, some 40 million Americans undergo anesthesia each year and the vast majority receive propofol.
