Controversial Drug

It is clear as day that this was a drug reaction. It was stated that Midazolam Hydrochloride an injection and solution used to sedate is used in respiratory depression and respiratory arrest, and a medication called Hydromorphone Hydrochloride an opiod injection and pill used to treat moderate to severe pain was used. Midazolam’s initial dose for sedation can be as little as 1mg and should not exceed 2.5mg it should be administered slowly over the course of two minutes, and then allow 2 minutes for the sedative effect. Its side effects are Anxiety, choking, confusion, difficult or troubled breathing, drowsiness, dry mouth, fast heartbeat, hyperventilation irregular heartbeats, and wheezing. Hydromorphones initial dose is 0.2 to 1 mg every 2 to 3 hours. And should be administered slowly over 2 to 3 minutes. A couple of its side effects are agitation, bloody, black or tarry stools, chest pain or discomfort, convulsions dry mouth fast, pounding or irregular heartbeat, dizziness, rapid or trouble breathing (www.Drugs.com). What Dennis McGuire experienced according to witnesses was gasping, convulsing, rattling, and choking these are some of the side effects from both drugs (Fantz). This makes it all the more factual that this was a drug reaction. I think from now on they should look into inmates’ medical record to see what their allergic to and check it against what’s in the medicine. This is a long and extensive process but it needs to be done.

The sculpture was to show the triumph of David against the giant Goliath and that was to symbolize the freedom of Florence, Italy against the tyrannical Medici family.
