2011 -Dr. testifies against Dr. Conrad Murray’s treatment on This Day in Rock Music History!
A sleep doctor who said Dr. Conrad Murray’s treatment of Michael Jackson’s insomnia with the surgical anesthetic propofol was “inconceivable” is expected to resume his testimony Thursday in the trial concerning the singer’s death.
Nader Kamangar, a UCLA associate professor who evaluated Murray’s care as an expert reviewer for the California Medical Board, told jurors Wednesday that the physician had violated the most basic standards and ethics in medicine in his treatment of Jackson.
Kamangar is one of three medical experts expected to testify for prosecutors in the third week of Murray’s involuntary-manslaughter trial.
“It’s kind of beyond a departure of standard of care to something that we would never even fathom doing,” Kamangar said in his testimony.
Echoing experts who have testified before him, Kamangar said his opinions concerning Murray’s actions would remain unchanged even if it were found that Jackson had given himself the lethal dose that led to his death.
