Electroconvulsive therapy

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is recognized as one of the most effective treatments in psychiatry and is endorsed by the National Institute of Mental Health and the American Psychiatric Association. ECT is a valuable and effective first line of intervention in emergencies such as those patients who may be actively suicidal, psychotic, nutritionally compromised or catatonic. Positive results can often be seen within one or two treatments.

Candidates for ECT are:

  • Those who suffer from a major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder or other manias, psychosis or schizophrenia
  • Those who have had multiple hospitalizations and regress rapidly into crisis
  • Those who are in need of rapid, definitive response because of the severity of a psychiatric or medical condition
  • Those experiencing symptoms of catatonia

Electroconvulsive therapy is provided by a team of professionals that include a psychiatrist, anesthesiologist and a nurse. ECT is given as a course of treatments, and the number needed to be successful can vary according to the individual.

All patients are thoroughly medically screened before treatment. It is recommended that you consult with your cardiologist or internal medicine physician before receiving ECT if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Pacemaker
  • High blood pressure
  • Other cardiovascular conditions
  • Diabetes
