Another Hands On Experience with ECT


I don’t think I’ve taken a blog to discuss ECT and it’s uses in modern society, but let me just say it is used in the psychiatric community when depression is resistant to the plethora of anti-depressants that are handed out today. It’s an ever continuing cycle and when the meds run out or no longer work, ECT is introduced into the client’s regimen. At some point, I will write more of an expose on ECT, but for now I just want to stick to my experience.

A nice account of ECT by someone undergoing this treatment. She even posted some pictures. Here you can read about session 6 and 7 with ECT, session 8 and 9, session 10, 11, 12.
