RESUMO

Sixty years after its introduction into psychiatry, the use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) still fuels scientific, ideological, and ethical debate. One well-informed proponent has observed that ECT is probably more enshrouded in myth than any other procedure in medicine. Among the population at large, and especially patients and their family members, ECT may be the psychiatric intervention that arouses the most anxiety-although some authors dispute this assertion. This paper reports the results of a mail survey conducted in 1995 to obtain precise and authoritative data concerning the use of ECT in Latin American and the Caribbean. The objective was to facilitate the identification of psychiatric, administrative, and bioethical issues that will provide, if needed, the basis for action to ensure that ECT is used appropriately (AU)
