Shona L Ray-Griffith, Lou Ann Eads, Xiaotong Han, Kimberly Golden, Zachary N Stowe
OBJECTIVE: This randomized controlled pilot study examines the differences in response to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) as defined by an improvement of depressive symptoms between ketamine and methohexital as the primary anesthetic agent. Adverse effects and cognitive tolerability were also examined. METHODS: Subjects undergoing ECT for unipolar or bipolar depression were randomized to receive ketamine or methohexital as the anesthetic agent. Primary outcome measure includes the Hamilton rating scale for depression (17-item)...

OBJECTIVES: Little epidemiologic research has examined the practice of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). We investigated sociodemographic and clinical characteristics, service use, and psychotropic medication prescription patterns associated with ECT use at a Veterans Health Administration Medical Center. METHODS: Among veterans receiving specialty mental health services, we compared those who received ECT with those who did not using bivariate χ and t tests and multivariate logistic regression...

INTRODUCTION: New treatment options such as noninvasive brain stimulation have been recently explored in the field of substance use disorders (SUDs), including transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). OBJECTIVES: In light of this, we have performed a review of the scientific literature to assess efficacy and technical and methodological issues resulting from applying tDCS to the field of SUDs. METHODS: Our analysis highlighted the following selection criteria: clinical studies on tDCS and SUDs (alcohol, caffeine, cannabis, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and nicotine)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate how the combined use of dexmedetomidine with intravenous anesthetics influences seizure duration and circulatory dynamics in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). METHODS: A literature search was performed to identify studies that evaluated the effect of dexmedetomidine on motor- or electroencephalogram (EEG)-based seizure durations and maximum mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR) after ECT. Moreover, recovery time and post-ECT agitation were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to test the proposition that adoption of a dose titration protocol may be associated with better patient outcomes, at lower treatment dose, and with comparable cumulative dose to that in patients treated using an age-based stimulus dosing protocol. METHODS: This was an analysis of data assembled from archived records and based on cohorts of patients treated respectively on an age-based stimulus dosing protocol and on a dose titration protocol in the National Health Service in England...

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is an intervention for patients with a variety of psychiatric conditions. Occasionally, people exhibit dangerous degrees of agitation after this treatment, and some do not respond well to conventional pharmacotherapies. Dexmedetomidine is a central α-2 agonist that can induce significantly calmative effects in persons with post-ECT agitation. The indication for it is in calming individuals with acute and/or recurrent posttreatment agitation. Dexmedetomidine is safe and effective when infused just before, or postictally, at ECT sessions...

OBJECTIVES: Although electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is considered a safe and highly effective treatment option for major depressive disorder, there are still some reservations with regard to possible adverse cognitive adverse effects. This is the case despite a large body of evidence showing that these deficits are transient and that there even seems to be a long-term improvement of cognitive functioning level. However, most data concerning cognitive adverse effects stem from studies using mixed samples of treatment-resistant and non-treatment-resistant as well as ECT-naive and non-ECT-naive subjects...

The anesthetic-electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) time interval (time interval elapsed from the beginning of anesthesia injection to the beginning of ECT stimulus) has been reported to have an important impact on seizure quality outcomes, because it is an indirect measure of the anesthetic plasma concentration when the ECT electrical stimulus is administered. We report the importance of the routine monitoring of this time interval in clinical settings, as an additional measure to interpret seizure quality outcomes at each ECT session, to further assist on ECT dosing decisions during the treatment course...
