Hi,
I'm sorry about your mom. Its my understanding that they don't "stop" the pacemaker, Nature takes it course regardless of the pacemaker. I went through this with my mom.

They don't stop your mum's pacemaker unless it has a built in defib. Even then my father in law became very ill and passed away last year and even though he had a pacemaker and defib he just shut his eyes and died peacefully, surrounded by family.
