    Dr. Slavit's Examination of Michael

    I just wanted to throw out there that my first impression of why there was a weight difference was hydration state... upon autopsy he was likely VERY hydrated, given the amount of fluids CM allegedly gave him, and backed up by the 500 mL of urine present (which itself would weigh over a...

    Murray trial Day 23, November 3rd - discussion

    i was under the impression the fingerprint stipulation the defense & pros agreed to stated that the lack of fingerprints specifically did not mean a person did not touch something... :unsure: so that they cannot use the lack of fingerprints as evidence???

    Murray Trial- Day 15 -October 21st

    Interesting (& not at all surprising) things I found about Dr. Shafer vs. Dr. White... Dr. Shafer: Just like how he refuses to take money for testimony, he refuses to take money from Big Pharma, in spite of his major interests being in pharmacology! (such a good doc! :wub:)...

    Murray Trial- Day 15 -October 21st

    good question. if that's true, how is he supposed to fully explain his theories? this is crap that they can't just make murray testify as to what he did and then go off that.

    Murray Trial- Day 15 -October 21st

    i hope this helps (sorry this is going to be long, I'd rather not interpret the text so I will just copy)... it's from Miller's Anesthesia, 7th edition... the major cardiovascular effect is a drop in blood pressure, and if you have pre-existing cardiac problems, this can lead to bad stuff...

    Murray Trial- Day 15 -October 21st

    i agree, especially if the insurance company wanted records of care he surely couldn't show them what he was doing! although i think he could have also destroyed the records after the fact too to conceal it, since before he probably didn't think he'd get caught. does anyone know if it is...

    Murray Trial- Day 15 -October 21st

    which would be 16 mL based on michael's weight at 2.5 mg/kg, still not possible. besides, this is not a "study", it is a case report from 2001 where the authors (doctors? ph.ds? toxicologists? undergrads?) make their best guess based on their clinical expertise and the evidence as to what...
