Patient discussion about electric current

Q. Is electric shock efficient for ocd? Is it dangerous? My husband has OCD for 15 years now. He was also diagnosed with mania-depressia. He takes so many medications and nothing really helps. We were offered to try electric shock and I'm scared. Is it dangerous? What are the chances of this method to work for him?

A. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is indeed considered effective for OCD, although it's not the first line of treatment. It does have its risks, including memory loss, disorientation and sort of confusion. There is also a change in the activity of the heart but it's rarely significant.

Generally it can be said that it's not an absolutely safe treatment, but it may help, especially if other drugs don't help.

Q. Which type of toothbrush is the best? Electric or regular?

A. i think that is the most ancient debate of them all ? longer then mankind itself ?. Some people say that, other say this- but the truth is it doesn’t matter. It’s how you use the toothbrush that counts. If used properly even the simplest toothbrush can be satisfying.

Q. I'M 56 YEARS OLD FEMALE, PRETTY GOOD HEALTH. BUT LATELY I BEEN HAVING LIKE ELECTRIC SHOCK ON MY BODY.

A. is this the only symptom? if there are more- i recommend (the second time today!) this site:

you can make a list of the symptoms you have and it'll give you the optional diseases/syndromes

2]i giving the average electron current, where i is the incident current at the pn junction.
Let z be axial coordinate, i(z, t)--distribution of tape density of electron current in the specimen at the instant t (under tape density of current the current is meant, which acts on the area of ring surface of the specimen of a unit length).
These high current density levels were achieved with high currents sufficient to address many applications where high electron current densities are required, such as CRT TVs, high power microwave devices, e-beam lithography and fine-focus x-ray tubes.
In addition, recent improvements in the radio-frequency control system have substantially increased the electron current injected into the machine, so that injection currents in excess of 500 mA have now been attained (as compared to the 300 mA characteristic of SURF II).
