Özet

OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have reported that hyperventilation prolongs seizure length. However, there is no clear consensus in clinical guidelines on how to perform hyperventilation during Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). The present study aims to investigate the effects of hyperventilation on seizure length and cerebral oxygenation.
