Sedation procedure difficult

Oklahoman Published: May 9, 2014

Not what it seems

The undesirable outcome of the recent execution has had predictable results in the local and national media. Well-meaning liberals and the anti-death penalty crowd are again showing their ignorance with sensationalism in reporting on the event. A godless society without rules and laws applied swiftly and justly will only be infected with further violence. We must execute the perpetrators of heinous crimes and pass them along to God for judgment. To not do so further risks society and the rule of law.

For certain broadcast journalists to keep repeating the term “botched” is a reflection on their own poor journalism and laziness in getting the facts. It’s also an insult to the professionals who are tasked to dutifully carry out justice in the name of society.

I was a practicing dentist for nearly 40 years. Many of my years were spent in the military providing deep sedation and oral surgery procedures to military beneficiaries. Finding a good vein and administering drugs was one of the most difficult procedures to perform. The surgical procedures themselves became routine, but never the sedation.
