        11    BY MR. LAYSER:

        12    Q.     BY THE WAY, DR. CRANE, YOU ARE SCHEDULED TO COME

        13    TO DELAWARE COUNTY IN MAY IN THE CASE OF VERELLA VERSUS

        14    DESANTIS (PHONETIC); IS THAT RIGHT?

        15    A.     I DON'T KNOW.

        16    Q.     YOU DIDN'T GET THAT TRIAL DATE YET?

        17    A.     NO.

        18    Q.     DO YOU HAVE THAT SECOND DR. SNYDER REPORT HANDY?

        19    A.     YES.

        20    Q.     I DON'T THINK I HAVE EVER GOTTEN A COPY OF THAT.

        21    I'M GOING TO MARK THAT D-8 FOR IDENTIFICATION.  I MAY

        22    HAVE SOME QUESTIONS FOR DR. GENNER TOMORROW.

        23                       THE COURT:  YOU'VE ALREADY PRE-MARKED

        24           OTHERS I TAKE IT IT?
 

                                                                   119




         1                       MR. LAYSER:  RIGHT.

         2                       THE COURT:  D-8 IS DR. SNYDER'S

         3           REPORT.

         4                       MR. LAYSER:  JULY 28TH, 1994

         5    BY MR. LAYSER:

         6    Q.     NOW, ON DIRECT YOU TALKED ABOUT PAIN ORDERS AND

         7    MEDICATION FOR PAIN; DO YOU RECALL THAT?

         8    A.     YES.

         9    Q.     YOU WERE SHOWN THIS BLOW-UP THAT LISTS THE

        10    DEMEROL AND VISTARIL?

        11    A.     YES.

        12    Q.     JUST SO I AM CLEAR, VISTARIL IS GIVEN WITH

        13    DEMEROL SO THAT THE EFFECTS OF DEMEROL CAN GET THROUGH A

        14    PATIENT'S SYSTEM AND RELIEVE THE PAIN; IT ENHANCES,

        15    AUGMENTS THE DEMEROL?

        16    A.     IT AUGMENTS -- DEMEROL CAN BE GIVEN ALONE, BUT

        17    VISTARIL AUGMENTS IT.

        18    Q.     BUT YOU DON'T GIVE VISTARIL ALONE?

        19    A.     YOU CAN.

        20    Q.
