Ramanath who stays in US was convicted of the patient's murder and handed the suspended jail sentence at the Birmingham Brown Court for going against the wishes of three colleagues and failing to speak to a consultant anaesthetist at the hospital before injecting the drug into Leighton.
The doctor was in London in February to face the charge after being threatened with extradition. The jury found her guilty by a 10-2 majority while Ramanath denied manslaughter by gross negligence.
The prosecuting lawyer, Michael Burrows said, that within moments of the injection Leighton jerked forward in her bed and exclaimed: "What's happening to me? I am going to die." She lost consciousness shortly afterwards.
