Excerpt

The electrode placement and dose parameters used in the initial course of ECT are maintained during continuation and maintenance ECT. Retrospective reviews have not found that stimulus placement affects the clinical outcome (Petrides et al. 1994), although no systematic studies have compared unilateral and bilateral placement in prophylactic ECT. Since seizure threshold can increase during acute treatment because of the frequency of treatments, the threshold would be expected to decrease during prophylactic ECT. In one small study the threshold was shown to decrease significantly when the treatments were separated by 60 days or more (Wild et al. 2004).
