ECT is possibly the most stigmatized medical procedure in American popular culture. This negative reputation was born during the 1930s-1950s because prototypal treatment parameters using bilateral sinusoidal waveforms without anesthesia risked significant cognitive and physical harm. Clinicians also faced difficult ethical considerations treating a population that often lacked decision making capacity due to severe mental illness. The advent of less invasive psychotropic medications in the 1960s further precipitated a social, political, and legal push against ECT.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Reducing the length of hospital stay (lohs) of elderly psychiatric patients is of great importance. The role of electroconvulsive therapy (ect) in this process is still unclear. AIM: To explore the impact of ect on the lohs in elderly (>60 years) with major depressive disorder (mdd). METHOD: All charts of patients with a diagnosis of mdd, discharged from geriatric psychiatry wards from April 2009 to December 2017 were gathered. Two groups were further explored: those who did not receive ect although available (no-ect; n = 170) and those who received ect within 3 weeks of admission (ect

Psychotic depression (PD) is a severe disorder that may be more common among the older vs. younger adults. The significant morbidity and disability associated with acute episodes of PD can be especially prominent in the elderly. Treatment guidelines recommend either electroconvulsive therapy or the combination of antidepressant and antipsychotic medications for the acute treatment of PD. However, little is known about the risks and benefits of antipsychotic medication during continuation and maintenance treatment.

Using a case study as an example, this article discusses the diagnosis of a patient with NMS, the use of ECT as a treatment for NMS, and the importance of nursing care for these patients.

R, Benseñor I, Valiengo L, Brunoni AR Abstract Current first-line treatments for major depressive disorder (MDD) include pharmacotherapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy. However, one-third of depressed patients do not achieve remission after multiple medication trials, and psychotherapy can be costly and time-consuming. Although non-implantable neuromodulation (NIN) techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, electroconvulsive therapy, and magnetic seizure therapy are gaining momentum for treating MDD, the efficacy of non-convulsive techniques is still mod...
