In ECT, the relative timing of seizure induction and anesthesia may critically impact on seizure quality when anesthetic agents with anticonvulsive properties such as barbiturates or propofol are used. Measuring the depth of anesthesia by bispectral index (BIS) monitoring and thereby identifying the optimal moment for seizure induction might enhance seizure quality.Seizures from 869 individual ECT -sessions with thiopental anesthetic from 118 patients were examined in this retrospective study… CONTINUE READING
