Dr. John Dombrowski provided input into a CNN story about how at the start of the Dr. Conrad Murray trial, patients are questioning the use of propofol in their care. The story does a good job of providing an overview of the appropriate use of propofol and that it is not indicated for how Michael Jackson was said to be using it.
Dr. Dombrowski’s quotes included:
And since the singer’s death, doctors have had many conversations that begin with patients saying, “I don’t want that stuff. That’s the stuff that killed Michael Jackson,” says Dr. John Dombrowski, a member of the board of directors of the American Society of Anesthesiology.
But it’s also provided a teaching opportunity for physicians to explain to patients that medications like propofol do not directly kill or harm patients; it’s the improper administration and inattention to detail that can be lethal.
“But if done safely, with the right training, it’s been [the case] for millions of patients that they go to sleep and they wake up very comfortable and safe,” Dombrowski said.
