Abstract

Introduction: Screening for occult disease using laboratory testing prior to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a common practice with little empirical support. Method: In a pre-ECT and post-ECT sample of 73 and 562 (respectively) patients evaluated for ECT, the utility of the electrocardiogram, serum sodium, serum potassium, serum creatinine, chest radiograph, hemoglobinlevel. and white blood cell count was examined. Results and Discussion: Reviewing the electrocardiogram and measuring sodium and potassium levels prior to the administration of ECT appear to be useful screening tests becausethey detect correctable unexpected conditions that are relevant to the risk of the procedure. Hemoglobin and white blood cell count abnormalities didnot influence the administration of ECT or predict ECT complications. An abnormal creatinine level or abnormal chest radiograph prior to the administration of ECT predicted a poor medical prognosis that appeared largely unrelated to the administration of ECT.
