Delayed Neurological Sequalae of Low-Voltage Electrical Injury

ECT isn’t presently considered “electrical injury” in medical literature because when electrodes are properly applied to the forehead to conduct electricity, there are no burns on the skin. Electricity takes the path of least resistance.

The brain and central nervous system were designed to conduct electricity.

Electricity applied between the ears, “internal resistance (less the skin resistance) is only 100 ohms” meaning electricity travels farther through the body when applied to the head than any other place on the body. 

The electricity of ECT impacts more than directly beneath the electrodes.

Bilateral electrode placement puts the electricity focal point on the anterior of frontal lobes and brain stem causing diffuse low-voltage electrical injury in soft brains.

Contrary to doctors claims, they cannot control electrical path through brain matter that is 73% water, regardless of benevolent intent (high voltage electrical wood burning is an excellent visual image of what low-voltage electricity does to soft, moist human tissue).
