I'm really not sure yet, Phillipa. But I'm thinking different hospitals develop their own protocol that work off what ever official guidelines their are for ECT. Some hospitals may feel that "Ultrabrief Pulse ECT" hasn't been fully proven to work yet.
So they'd stick with a form that has been in use longer. But I'm positive if I'm told they are doing "Sine Wave", then I won't be up for that. If I remember right, Sine Wave is the oldest form of ECT, and is much more likely to leave you with severe side effects.
