Sorry to read of the difficulties, and send my best wishes for a full recovery.

Clearly your best advice is from the doctor(s) treating, including the ICU team.  

When you say 25, is that beats per minute?  If that is I understand why he is still in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit?).  

From what I have read, a HR as low as 25 must be corrected and the only one I know of is a pacemaker.
