Psychiatric News (7/13) reports, “Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) does not appear to significantly increase the risk of serious medical events in adults who are hospitalized for depression,” investigators concluded in a study that “compared more than 10,000 hospitalization records for adults with depression who received treatment at psychiatric inpatient facilities in Ontario, Canada, for more than three days between April 1, 2007, and February 28, 2017.” The findings were published online July 12 in The Lancet Psychiatry.
