Double-blind controlled trail of electroconvulsive therapy (E.C.T.) and simulated E.C.T. in depressive illness.

Abstract

40 patients prescribed electroconvulsive therapy (E.C.T.) for treatment of a depressive illness were randomly allocated to two groups. One group had the first two E.C.T. treatments replaced by simulated E.C.T. on a double-blind basis. The results show that E.C.T. is significantly superior to simulated E.C.T. in the treatment of depressive illness.
