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

In order to analyze influence of the anode material and current on change of the electron current in the specimen the results of experimental measurements were processed relative dimensionless current [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII.
In cathodic protection these electrode reactions which convert electron current into ion current are different at the anode and cathode (pipe) surface.
The fluctuating electron currents amount to the detection of wave effects of the dynamical space: gravitational waves [11].

By controlling the distribution of-spin-up and spin-down electrons, you can control the electron current in much the same way as you control currents with electronic switches and transistors.
Experiments reveal that the electron current fluctuations are solely caused by space fluctuations [8].
Furthermore, the minus sign on the normalized transmission current in (18) implies that no electrons are entering Region II--the total electron current (reflected plus "transmitted") travels in the negative z direction away from the step.
