Michael Jackson - Dr. Conrad Murray Couldn't Give Timeline

Dr. Conrad Murray "had no concept of time" in the lead up to Michael Jackson's death, a court has heard.

Cardiologist Dr. Thao Nguyen took to the witness stand in Los Angeles Superior Court today (03.10.11) to give evidence in the trial of the physician - who is accused of the involuntary manslaughter of the singer - and said the doctor was unable to provide a time frame for several crucial moments when they spoke at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center on June 25 2009.

Dr. Nguyen - who attended to the King of Pop when he was brought into hospital - told the court that Murray explained to her he had given the star two separate doses of Ativan, which is also known as lorazepam, via an IV to help him sleep.

The doctor then told her he had briefly left Michael's bedroom and returned to find the star was not breathing.

However, Murray told the cardiologist he did not know when he administered the doses, when Michael had stopped breathing or how long it had been before emergency services were called.

Dr. Nguyen said: "He said he did not have any concept of time, [that] he did not have a watch."

Michael died of acute Propofol intoxication, but Murray has denied being the one who administered the drug.

Dr. Nguyen stated on the witness stand that Murray never mentioned giving Propofol to the 'Billie Jean' singer.

She said: "Absolutely not. He did not mention that agent to me."

Earlier today, Dr. Richelle Cooper testified that she had told paramedics Michael could be declared dead when they attended his home, but he was brought to hospital as Murray wanted the resuscitation efforts to continue.

In her evidence, Dr. Nguyen said Murray had asked "that we not give up easily and try to save Mr. Jackson's life", though she felt it was "not a case of too little, too late but a case of too late."

She added: "In Dr. Murray's mind, if we called it quits at that time it would be giving up easily.

"What I feared was that time was not on Mr. Jackson's side. We were running too late."

Murray denied involuntary manslaughter but faces four years in jail if convicted.

The trial continues.

I have had multiple surgeries and when propofol is given it does not just magically disappear completely out of your system. It slowly comes out of your system and as you wake up you do not know where you are nor do you have the energy in your hands to supply more drugs to yourself. Dr.'s will not even allow you to drive for 24 hours after getting propofol because you will still feel it's affects. So this ignorant theory of the defense to BLAME MICHAEL does not wash. This trial is just a load of BS.
