Americans’ minds and bodies, especially those over 50, are more susceptible to the sometimes, lethal effects of anesthesia without a brain monitor.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Newport Beach, California, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) October 31, 2011
“Michael Jackson unquestionably died from anesthesia over-medication,” says propofol expert, anesthesiologist Dr. Barry Friedberg.
No details of 60 Minutes’ Andy Rooney’s post-surgery problems have been released.
However, it is highly probable Andy had ‘minor’ surgery without brain monitored anesthesia.
Brain monitors are found in 75% of US hospitals yet, shockingly, only utilized 25% of the time.
One American surgery patient dies daily from anesthesia over-medication, a routine practice when no brain monitor is used.
Delirium is also an issue especially for patients with advancing age.
No delirium observed in elderly patients when general anesthesia over-medication was avoided; i.e. BIS 45-60 on a 0-100 scale.
Having surgery under anesthesia must be monitored with a brain monitor.
