Electroconvulsive Therapy by American Psychiatric Association

Book Description

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is an effective and lifesaving procedure for treating certain psychiatric conditions, especially when alternative therapies have proved ineffective. Using an enjoyable and effective learning format, Electroconvulsive Therapy: A Programmed Text, Second Edition, provides a concise review of the contemporary practice of ECT. This practical book details recent advances in the administration and technology of ECT and carefully and thoroughly explains the procedure, from the initial evaluation to treatment administration and posttreatment planning. It places special emphasis on practical clinical management problems during ECT, including evaluation, care of the medically ill patient, treatment algorithms, seizure, assessment, and termination algorithms. Short chapter tests and comprehensive tests at the end of the book involve the reader in the learning process and teach important aspects of ECT treatment. This book also contains more than 50 useful tables and figures for quick reference and a reference list for ECT device manufacturers; continuing education activities; and lists of educational materials for health care providers, patients, and families. A sample consent form and patient information sheet are also provided. A valuable adjunct to supervised instruction in ECT, Electroconvulsive Therapy: A Programmed Text also provides a handy pocket companion for any physician in the treatment room.
