How does ECT work?

Before the procedure, the patient has an IV inserted and general anesthesia. Once the patient is asleep, a brief intense electrical current to the patient’s head is applied which induces a brief motor seizure which generally lasts less than a minute. In total a patient is asleep for 5 to 10 minutes. Patients are monitored in the recovery room and then released.
