Dr Oz: Michael Jackson & Propofol Dangers As a Sleep Aid


Dr Oz: Propofol Killed Michael Jackson

In the segment “What’s Wrong With Sleep In America?” Dr Oz introduced Dr. Michael Breus, PhD and his old pal, Dr. Michael Roizen, MD to discuss insomnia in America and how far people will go to get some sleep.  Dr Oz also spoke with two audience members that described their years of insomnia and the drugs they took to rectify the problem.

Dr Oz: Dr Conrad Murray & Propofol

Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who administered Propofol to Michael Jackson is facing imprisonment in relation to Jackson’s death.  In the Spring of 2009, Jackson hired Dr. Murray.  According to court documents, June 25, 2009 at 1:30 am, Dr. Murray gave oral and intravenous drugs to Jackson in order to help him sleep, however, it did not work.  By morning, the exhausted singer begged for Propofol, a drug used in operating rooms as an anesthetic.  According to court documents, Dr. Murray attempted to stop Jackson from using the drug.  At 10:30 am, Dr. Murray administered the drug to Jackson.  At 11:00 am, Jackson fell asleep and never woke up.  Since then, Jackson’s death has put the spotlight on insomnia and the lengths that people will go to in order to sleep.
