Do alcohol pads expire?

Alcohol is quite volatile, and will evaporate very easily -- far moreso than water. So if the alcohol packing is in any way compromised, even microscopically, you'll find dry pads in the pack. And this is a frequent occurrance.

However, maintained in sealed stated, I don't see a way that alcohol can decompose -- so no.

How does electric current travel through the body when a defibrillator is used?

Simply speaking, a defibrillator works by using a moderately high voltage (something like 200–1000 volts) to pass an electric current through the heart so it's shocked into working normally again. The important thing is getting the current to flow through the heart, so where the paddles are applied is crucial.

Does it hurt to have a picc line removed?

Absolutely not. I just had mine removed about a week ago and I was a nervous wreck! As I was getting ready to brace the pain the nurse said it was out and I couldn't believe it! Veins have no feeling and your skin already has an opening due to the line going in. Just don't look and you won't have any idea what's going on.
