ECT

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a modern medical treatment offered at the Capital Regional Medical Center. It is an effective and safe treatment for certain mental illnesses. ECT has an estimated 80% success rate in relieving symptoms.

In this treatment, the patient receives brief electrical stimulation to the scalp. The nerve-cell activity releases chemicals in the brain and helps restore normal functioning. ECT is most commonly used in the treatment of severe depression.

While medications and therapy help most people with depression, ECT should only be considered as a treatment option after consulting with your physician. Some patients do not respond to medications, while others cannot tolerate the side-effects. Others whose illness has made them seriously suicidal may require the relief that ECT can provide. Schizoaffective Disorder, Catatonia, Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia are some other illnesses that can be helped by ECT.
