Dr. Barry Friedberg can say, 1) brain monitoring of propofol may not be common, but it absolutely needs to be; 2) the unorthodox use of propofol on Michael Jackson demanded the safest of care; 3) propofol for sleep is not the medically approved use of the drug; 4) practicing ‘outside the box’ absolutely demands the use of a brain monitor to measure propofol effect; 5) Jackson would certainly be alive today if his propofol had been measured with a brain monitor. It’s a no-brainer. 6) Propofol demands the use of the most basic safety monitor, a pulse oximeter. Otherwise, it’s reckless disregard.
