Intraperitoneal Anesthesia in ECT Treatments?

Posted by nickm on October 20, 2003, at 22:06:03

My wife received five ECT treatments in September, which had to be stopped after the 5th. On the 4th one she was given intraperitoneal anesthesia, although she had no organic or physical conditions that may have required this. She was having panic attacks and anxiety before the ECTs began, during the time they were being administered, and after. After tht 4th ECT her condition, mental and physical, deteriorated significantly. She now has long memory loss, that is for events beyond six months before the start of the treatments. She has forgotten birthdates, names of wives of our male grown children, deaths of family members, and other such. She is still agitated, and has akathisia from abilify - discontinued on 10/12/03 - and has significant cognitive impairment (though getting slowly better), and tiredness, fatigue, and anxiety.

What conditions could have caused the anesthesiologist to go for intraperitoneal anesthesia on the 4th application of the ECTs. As I said, she had give, and they were applied every other day, two on the wednesday and friday of the first week, and then three on monday, wednesday, and friday of the second week.

Thank you for your any info or help on this.
