ABSTRACT: Electroconvulsive therapy cannot proceed safely unless blood pressure is within the reference range. Finding the cause of very high or low blood pressure can be very difficult, time consuming, and expensive. We suggest a more valid and reliable time to check blood pressure. This is highlighted in the case of a man that became riddled with iatrogenic complications and needless treatments.
