Joan Rivers' Cause of Death Revealed

After passing away early last month after having a procedure at a medical center, Joan River‘s cause of death has been revealed.

“OCME [Office of the Chief Medical Examiner] has completed its investigation. The cause of Ms. Rivers’ death is anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with propofol sedation for evaluation of voice changes and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The manner of death is therapeutic complication,” spokeswoman Julie Bolcer said in a statement (via THR). “The classification of a death as a therapeutic complication means that the death resulted from a predictable complication of medical therapy.”

Joan basically had a lack of oxygen supply while she was under Propofol during her procedure at the medical clinic. Joan had brain damage from the lack of oxygen. The reason Joan was getting the endoscopy was because of problems due to acid reflux.

Our thoughts continue to go out to Joan‘s beloved friends and family.
