    This unfortunately seems like yet another tragic example of a celebrity's personal quirks and 'needs' overriding the common sense of everybody around them, including medical advisers who are supposed to know better.

    In all my years in nursing, I've never heard of Diprivan (propofol) used outside a hospital or day surgery facility---it's what they give ICU patients on ventilators to keep them heavily sedated, so they don't get agitated and start pulling out their endotracheal tubes and IV lines. It's also used during difficult alcohol detoxes, when you've got someone going through the DTs and the usual sedatives, e.g. Ativan, Valium, etc. don't work.

    The thing is, Diprivan is a controlled substance that should never, ever, EVER be used without resuscitation equipment and Narcan close by just in case. You've got to be able to reverse the effects of the drug and breathe for the patient if they go into cardiorespiratory arrest. Whoever gave MJ this drug in his home---if that's what actually happened---without highly trained medical personnel and a crash cart present at the bedside is criminally negligent and should never again be allowed to practice medicine, IMHO.:icon_evil:

    The Memorial Service was very nicely done.... Much better than I had anticipated.
