Modern medicine has presented another challenge to the Death with Dignity school

Modern medicine has presented another challenge to the Death with Dignity school.


Pacemakers have been a wonderful boon for keeping many heart patients alive; unfortunately, they become a boom when the patient finally dies.


Despite all the legal paperwork, most doctors forget to mention to crematorium staff that the deceased was fitted with a pacemaker.


In around half of all cases, the body quite literally explodes when the curtains are drawn around the coffin-and within earshot of the mourners.


Around 17,000 pacemakers are fitted every year in Britain alone, so a failsafe way of reporting the presence of a pacemaker needs to be explored.
