As mentioned in the previous paragraph, Jackson could not have administered the entire ampoule himself due to the small size of the syringes and subsequent loss of consciousness after receiving 100 mg (10 m L), the maximum amount one syringe could hold assuming no lidocaine was added.Sedation can be achieved from doses of 100 mg and less.Murray also withheld information from paramedics, UCLA staff, and for two days, police.Admitting to only administering Ativan and saline prevented health care staff from determining what they were really treating.In addition, by him refusing to declare Jackson deceased at the residence he delayed making the residence a crime scene which has without a doubt compromised this case and allowed room for corruption (see Discussion Regarding TMZ Live's Video Aired on 04/05/2010 Which Discusses the "Suicide Theory": Please view the following video: Selma Calmes' report contained within the autopsy report:"Could the decedent have given propofol to himself?I pray the police and DA are carefully examining every word and every shred of evidence presented to them.
If Jackson was given more than 100 mg at one time then someone else had to do it to him as an unconscious man cannot manually administered drugs to himself. states, " (t)he risk of death due to a self-administered propofol intoxication is very low, primarily due to the low concentration found in commercial ampoules (20 m L containing 200 mg).
Someone with medical knowledge or experience would have started the IV.
Anyone could have drawn up and administered the medications after the IV was started."Please keep in mind that anyone could administer the drug but the IV configuration limited if not completely barred Jackson from being capable of giving it to himself nor was he skilled at IV injections.
The only way this may have presented a problem is if the benzodiazepines in Jackson's system were in fact sedating him and causing some respiratory depression.
This would also mean Jackson was in fact unconscious.
