This report shows procedure numbers for electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), neurostimulation, external electric defibrillation (cardio version) of cardiac rhythm and electro therapy” reported by all German hospitals between 2006 and 2014.

The report focuses on: (1) Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) with information if there were less or more than 8 treatments and if it was an initial treatment or a follow-up treatment. (2) Neurostimulation with information on the location: brain, spine or peripheral nerve and if a pharmacological adjustment was conducted. (3) External electric defibrillation (cardio version) of cardiac rhythm: synchronized or desynchronized. (4) Temporary external electric stimulation of cardiac rhythm and temporary internal electric stimulation of cardiac rhythm. (5) Electric stimulation of heart rhythm, intra-operative (used for surgeries where this procedure is not common). (6) Electrotherapy.
Altogether data for over 20 procedures are presented.
Data are divided by federal state and procedures per 100.000 inhabitants per federal state. Furthermore the “Top 5 performers" - hospitals with the most “electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), neurostimulation, external electric defibrillation (cardio version) of cardiac rhythm and electro therapy” procedures - are identified. The data will support strategic business decisions and guide sales activities.
