(a) EEG trace, mainly composed of spindle waves, is shown in the upper side of this photogram. (b) Both extremely low amplitude of basic EEG activity and partially clustered slow waves are shown in the middle side of this photogram.

2 Barbiturates Barbiturates (thiopental and thiamylal) are alternatives to methohexital for anesthesia during ECT, although these drugs are associated with relatively short duration ECT seizures [10, 11]. In addition, more frequent arrhythmia was observed when using thiopental and thiamylal as compared to methohexital . Mokriski et al.  showed that seizure duration was significantly prolonged by a mean of 5 s during methohexital anesthesia compared with thiopental sodium and thiamylal. The frequency of sinus bradycardia was lower with methohexital (8 %) compared with thiopental sodium (20 %) and thiamylal (20 %).
