Customer Question

I am in Florida. My brother just received a pace maker a couple of weeks ago. He lives alone. We're in the Store watch area. I suggested that he come and stay with me or with someone else during the storm. He says that he is monitored and it is important for him to stay where he is. Is this correct?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: No, didn't think of it until now. Doctor and staff is gone for the day. I meant storm warning area.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: He does have blood pressure and neropathy problems
JA: Is this consistent, or is there some fluctuation in blood pressure?
Customer: Usually consistent with the medication he is on.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The monitoring of the rhythm is stored in the pacemaker.

So there is no problem moving to someplace else especially for personal safety.

Your brother does not need to worry about it.

He should also consult with his doctor.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
