Information about Electro-Convulsive Therapy
On certain occasions, electroconvulsive therapy is recommended. Electroconvulsive therapy is a hospital-based procedure to treat treatment-resistant depression and, in some cases, mania. ECT has been used for many years and its techniques have been refined. This is a complicated procedure that has been controversial over the years, but when the proper patient selection is made, it can be a live-saving treatment.
