My mother is waiting for a pacemaker to be fitted but her blood pressure is low can we get a temporary pacemaker fitted to boast her blood pressure so a permanent what can be fitted

Thanks for the discussion. As we said, temporary pacemakers are generally for emergency and very limited use only. Usually more efforts would go into getting someone fit for a permanent system such as by administering fluids or medication that can lift the blood pressure up or at the minimum, stop medications that might lower the blood pressure further. All the very best to you and mum.

I hope that helps. I'd be grateful if you'd consider kindly leaving a short review. All the best to you both again.
