Electroconvulsive Therapy

ECT is a safe brief electrical stimulation of the brain while the patient is under anaesthesia. It is typically administered by a team of trained medical professionals that includes a psychiatrist, an anaesthesiologist, & a nurse or physician assistant. 

It is a very safe procedure especially for those with treatment failures, or patients with intolerable side effects. Those are the most frequent ECT indication. The utilization of ECT enhances response rates significantly.

A usual course of ECT involves multiple administrations, typically given two or three times per week until the patient is no longer suffering from the symptoms.
