In this book, recognized anesthesiology experts present the latest
findings on anesthesia for electro-convulsive therapy (ECT). With
the development of modified electroconvulsive therapy (m-ECT) and
devices to provide brief-pulse stimulation, ECT is currently being
re-evaluated as an important procedure in psychiatric disorder
therapy and is increasingly being used worldwide to treat several
psychiatric conditions. This trend is due to the social phenomenon
of the growing number of patients for whom ECT is applicable. Since
the new approach is more safe and effective than the original
method without anesthesia, m-ECT is currently applied under general
anesthesia in most advanced countries. This book provides an
overview and practice of total anesthesia management in the
perioperative period of ECT. It offers an indispensable resource
not only for professional anesthesiologists but also healthcare
professionals who use this therapy.
