Yeah like, when they die, those machines unplug themselves magically.

i'm sorry if i'm wrong cause i don't really know about this stuff but if the patient were dead then wouldn't it still flat line because the machine is receiving no input from the patient so wouldn't it just beep and show a flatline as if it were unplugged? if not what dose it do?

incase you were interested i did some research into it, what i found was eventually it would flat line but it would take a while and in most cases the patient is disconnected from the machine prior to the heart ceasing all electrical impulses when death is soon expected. Asystole (no electrical activity) means the heart isn't functioning- this gives a flatline, but the line won't be ruler straight in most cases, it might be a little wavy. in tv and movies they just make it a flat line so the audience will know they are dead, If Hollywood were to depict the line as "a little wavy," there are going to be audience members who think the person is still alive because the line isn't perfectly flat.
tldr- no electrical impulse = wavy lines not a perfect flat line, so you're right.

I'm an EKG technician, and I agree with what you just said. When it flat lines, everybody already knows that the patient is going to die because flat lines don't just appear out of nowhere. Usually the patient will go into bradycardia, then we would start working with the patient to increase the heart rate, most of the time we'll just watch the heart rate though. A lot of the time when you see a flat line it is because the patient pulled the leads off.

I think that it's the emoticons and childishness I used in the picture.

Then again, I really don't know the psychology of the average user on this site, so I have no idea. And yeah, I knew the risks when posting this picture. Threw a pair of dice to decide whether to post or not.

It sounds like the person is trying too hard if they punctuate it correctly.
For example:
"I'd be ******* dead! What do you expect me to do? A ******* backflip!?"

Not nearly as funny.
