The fourth edition of this popular Handbook provides the latest guidance on prescribing and administering electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Leading researchers and practitioners review new research on ECT and related treatments, including their efficacy in children and adolescents, and in those with bipolar disorder and neurological conditions. With a focus on safe provision and minimisation of side effects, it provides the reader with practical, evidence-based advice. The book has been substantially revised: references have been updated throughout; related treatment modalities such as rTMS, tCDS and ketamine are covered in greater depth; and current administrative and legal framework guidelines are clearly outlined. An essential reference manual for consultant and trainee clinical psychiatrists, as well as ECT practitioners. This guide will benefit clinical teams looking after complex cases of depression, as well as those involved in the care of other people for whom ECT may be recommended.
Book Description A thorough update to the ‘must-have’ guide to ECT for clinical psychiatrists, providing practical advice on safe and efficacious treatment.
Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:
⭐ I was surprised how good this book is! There are so many practical points, given so succinctly, that you can learn nearly everything you need. Well, I thought I knew a lot, but am glad I read this book. Complex topics such as dental issues, catatonia, ketamine, schizophrenia, are presented in an easy, yet comprehensive format. Highly recommended to every ECT practitioner, and short enough to be appreciated even by junior doctors.
⭐ Great book, fast delivery
⭐ This new edition was organized well. It even has rTMS, VNS, DBS etc. Very lucid presentation. Got good clarity. Must for every Psychiatry Postgraduate for conducting ECT and for university theory paper. Loved it.
