Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

He was in the hospital last week for five days and yes he does have a problem as had a problem with his blood pressure but I'm just worried that when they stuck the sticky patch that monitors his heart they put it on top of his pacemaker
