Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) can cause mild short term memory loss to severe and persistent memory loss.
ECT has a low rate of mortality. However, if you have cardiovascular problems, ECT is not recommended.
Unlike before the 1980s, anesthesia is now used in conjunction with ECT to minimize the physical reactions normally induced by seizures. The muscles are completely relaxed to inhibit convulsions during the procedure.
