Hospital's Care of Deputy Probed : Slaying: Gunshot victim died at county's King/Drew facility. Prosecutors say he may have received too much blood and fluids. Medical officials insist care was good.
November 15, 1993 | CLAIRE SPIEGEL, TIMES STAFF WRITER
The sound of taps has long faded from the cemetery where Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Nelson Yamamoto was buried last year after undergoing surgery for gunshot wounds. But the case is far from closed. For 18 months, a high-stakes criminal investigation has quietly focused on whether Yamamoto's death was caused by the gross negligence of doctors at Martin Luther King Jr./Drew Medical Center.

Proximal to the time of the officers death, due to the tachycardia, he received both a beta-blocker followed by a calcium channel block which lead immediatedly to asystole.

Hi,

Does the patient's usual PO medication ever affect your choice of IV medication?
For example, if a patient was on metoprolol at home, would you be any more or less likely to use IV Ca blocker for rapid AFib?

Thanks,

Bryan
