My Dad died a week ago from pneumonia.
He had a bit of mucus in the back of his throat the last hour or so, not too bad, but I rang the nurse and asked if there was anything that we could do in order to help him.
She suggested to give him Robinul (I live in Sweden, so don't know the name for this in English).
I asked if there was anything like morphine in it, since I have a big trauma with my Mum's death some years ago with morphine.
No, not at all said the nurse, and I felt calm.
Dad got the injection and died 30 min later..
I read later on that this Robinul given to dry out mucus, can cause irregular heartbeat!!
We were waiting for my brother to come, and now I feel this injection caused my dad's death there and then and so father and son never got the chance to say goodbye
Does anyone know about these kind of medicaments??
