Gross, three prisoners in Oklahoma argued that midazolam failed to achieve the level of unconsciousness required for surgery, creating risk of severe pain and suffering, the BBC reported. Midazolam is supposed to induce unconsciousness before other drugs are injected to stop a person’s breathing and their heart.Eight U.S. states, including Oklahoma, have either used midazolam or have proposed using the drug, the New York Times reported.Some U.S. states reintroduced other controversial methods, such as the gas chamber and firing squad during the shortage of various drugs, according to the BBC.
