It's still really surreal that Joan Rivers is actually gone.

Weeks after her untimely passing we can FINALLY know what it was that caused her death.

According to the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner, Joan went into a hypoxic arrest during her throat procedure which cut off oxygen to her brain therefore causing her death.

The examiner called the problem a 'predictable complication' that happened and they also found out that Joan was sedated using Propofol.

So, basically, Joan had severe brain damage due to the lack of oxygen.

However, the 'predictable complication' just means that what happened to her is a general side effect using anesthesia.

AKA it can happen to anyone.

Ugh. We're still so sad that Joan is gone, but at least her family can rest easy knowing what exactly went wrong.

    There is no such thing as "hypoxic arrest" you can go in to respiratory arrest, cardiac arrest, you may become hypoxic or have an anoxic brain injury.

    I hope Melissa Sues them cuz this same clinic Swore they DID NOT USE PROPOFOL AND I believe Predictable Death to me means that they knew what they were doing would Result in Joan's Death. That's a Shame

    Re: Jules – I don't think they knew what they were doing, but they did fuck up. Sounds like they used something the wrong way.
