This guest audio is from the Emotional Self Reliance Podcast, Sarah Hancock and her friend, Greg Threadgold have both had electroconvulsive therapy with remarkably different outcomes. In this episode they compare their different ECT experiences and discuss the need for better regulation of this procedure to ensure good outcomes for all patients.
This video demonstrates how to assess motor dysfunction in people with a history of repeated low-voltage electrical injury using the Box and Block test, a typical occupational therapy assessment with normative values against which to compare results.
each year more than two million people begin their life after ECT. We must take warnings about permanent injury seriously. Not only can some patients experience problems during and immediately after ECT, BUT some patients develop additional problems long after treatment.
Unmonitored ECT is a danger to patients. Please consider contacting Governor Abbot's opinion line (512-463-1782) to respectfully request he veto senate bill 800.
