What is Medical Clearance and why is this required?

Before having the first ECT treatment, a patient will need a full evaluation, which usually includes: medical history; complete physical exam; psychiatric assessment; basic blood tests; and an electrocardiogram (ECG) to check heart health. These exams help to make sure that the general anesthesia will be safe for you. It is the same medical clearance required for outpatient surgical procedures.
