Meet Our Team Of Schizophrenia Psychiatrists

Overview

ECT is a treatment option used for multiple mental health disorders. Small electric currents are transmitted into the brain during electroconvulsive treatment (ECT), which is performed under general anaesthesia. ECT appears to create changes in brain chemistry that can swiftly alleviate the symptoms of certain mental illnesses. When drugs aren't working or other treatments haven't worked, ECT may be a useful alternative.

We recognise that determining the right treatment option for you takes time. Moving from pillar to pillar for alternative treatment modalities, on the other hand, is extremely difficult. As a result, Cadabam's has consolidated many therapy alternatives into a single location. You may get started on your rehabilitation right now with our ECT treatments.

What is ECT?

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a medical treatment that is most usually used in patients who have failed to respond to conventional therapies for severe major depression, schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder.

While the patient is sedated, ECT includes a short electrical stimulation of the brain. A psychiatrist, an anesthesiologist, and a nurse or physician assistant are usually part of a team of qualified medical professionals that administer it.

Does ECT work?

When other therapies, including medicines and psychotherapy, have failed, ECT is often utilized. ECT is also used for those who require a quick response to treatment due to the severity of their disease, such as those who are suicidal.

The American Psychiatric Association, the American Medical Association, the National Institute of Mental Health, and equivalent organizations in Canada, the United Kingdom, and other nations have all validated ECT’s usefulness in treating serious mental diseases.
