Default Die quietly and peacefully

Can someone explain to me why doctors keep saying that people usualy die peacefully in their sleep.

My brother was diagnosed last august with Als.

Today he is in the hospital, he had a heart attck 4 days ago.

He is on the Bipap machine 24hrs a day. He is also getting Oxygen.

I watch as he struggles for each breath, he is sometimes confused and disorientated. I wonder why or how Doctors can sat that he will probably die quietly and peacefully in his sleep when his every waking moment is anything but?

Please Help me understand.
