Mother Chooses To Die So Her Son Can Live! Her Selfless Childbirth Decision Saved Her Baby's Life!

no title

This is so upsetting but so beautiful. It really shows the lengths a mother will go to protect her child.

Karisa Bugal of Aurora, Colorado, made a delivery room decision that ended with her death. But the risk to her was worth it because it meant her son, Declan, lived.

When Karisa was in the delivery room, ready to meet her son, doctors informed her she had a rare condition called amniotic fluid embolism.

Basically, the protective fluid from around her baby had escaped into her body and was destroying her organs. The condition is so rare it's barely been studied.

Was Joan Rivers' Death Preventable?

Filed under: Legal MattersJoan RiversMedicine

no title

We finally learned Joan Rivers' cause of death on Thursday. But was that the whole story?

The coroner's office implied that the lack of oxygen during Joan's hypoxic arrest was a possible side effect for anyone being anesthetized.

But at least one medical source thinks different.

According to this source, the Propofol administered to Joan had nothing to do with her hypoxia.

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.

Joan Rivers' Personal Doctor Allegedly Took A Selfie During Her Throat Procedure

joan rivers selfie procedure doctor

This is absolutely horrendous.

According to a staff member at Manhattan's Yorkville Endoscopy clinic, Joan Rivers' personal doctor allegedly took a selfie in the middle of the procedure room while Joan had been under anesthesia.

Another doctor, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, then performed the endoscopy she had been scheduled for.

After the endoscopy, Joan's personal doctor (an ear, nose and throat specialist uncertified by the clinic) allegedly performed an unauthorized biopsy without Joan's consent, according to the staff member.

During this alleged biopsy is when Joan reportedly experienced cardiac arrest, according to the source.

If these allegations are true, we'd be shocked and disgusted at the level unprofessional incompetence on the part of her personal doctor.

Joan Rivers' Endoscopy Doctor Fired After Procedure That Led To Her Death

Filed under: Legal MattersJoan RiversNew YorkHealth

joan rivers clinic doctor fired procedure yorkville endoscopy

We still don't know for sure what caused Joan Rivers' tragic death.

But as New York authorities continue to investigate the disputed circumstances, it seems at least that the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic is not waiting for more information.

According to sources at the clinic, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, a world-renowned doctor who co-founded Yorkville Endoscopy, was asked to step down from the board there.

He also has apparently been on administrative leave since August 28th.

Sources report that the board took issue with Dr. Cohen allowing Joan's ear-nose-throat doctor to step in and perform or help with some kind of procedure, even though he wasn't licensed at the clinic.

It was reported that procedure was an unauthorized biopsy, but the clinic is denying that.
