when can the pacemaker be turned off or who turns off the pacemaker
My sister called me to ask this question for her male partners brother. As she knows i have a pacemaker. I did not know the answer. Thought i would ask this knowledgeable group.
His brother is in rehab and has not eaten or drank for a week. Has a pacemaker, they wanted to know who and when can it be turned off. As they did not want him to suffer. So far his kidney has shut down. since it is there to keep the heart beating. Next week his medicare runs out and will become a private patient. They believe at that point Hospice can step in. That is a long time to wait.
Of course she might have to make that decision for me to.
