Abstract

Summary

This article reviews the use of sedatives and narcosis agents, muscle relaxants, and ventilation that are specific to ECT anesthesia rather than surgical anesthesia. Particular focus is given to interference with a seizure by pretreatment sedation and anesthetic narcosis; dosage of succinylcholine and alternatives to succinylcholine; emergence agitation; and the effects of ventilation on seizure quality.
