Ohio inmate to receive special pillow to help him breathe during*execution


COLUMBUS Ohios prisons agency will give a condemned inmate a wedge-shaped pillow to help him breathe during his execution this week.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction plans to provide the pillow for death row prisoner Alva Campbell on Wednesday because of breathing issues he could experience while lying flat, according to WJW.

A prison doctor recommended the accommodation after Campbell became agitated while lying on his back during an exam last month.

Sounds like he might need a CPAP...

They called it off after they couldn't find a vein. So he goes back on to death row and awaits a new date.

Doesn't have to be this hard...
Crappy prison medical personnel. Do you know how many people show up in a hospital for treatment who are dehydrated, or elderly who are very hard to find a vein on? Do you think they just say "sorry, we can't find a vein so we can't treat you?" Nope.
