    I guess the point is that the patient only seems alive because they have an EKG plugged in.

    But maybe that’s wrong. Maybe you meant for him to be on life support, but that doesn’t come across because there’s only one plug and it seems to be attached to an EKG.

    In that case, the dollar sign is to represent the cost-saving measure of unplugging him.

    If my first guess is right, the dollar sign doesn’t make a lot of sense. Since you’ve only plugged him into an EKG and not a respirator, he won’t (legally) be dead, and no money will be saved at all.

  2. Yeah it doesn’t make sense – full-proper life-support setup was to be depicted, but we didn’t have an internet connection at the time and dock wasn’t sure what one looked like. I guess I was also a little confused as well as to what constitutes a proper setup and didn’t think much about it. It’s pretty funny now, looking at what it actually depicts…

    Or maybe you’re just unplugging the EKG to save electricity, or to stop the annoying lifeline beep.
