Sherwin B. Nuland on Electroshock Therapy

In this TED talk American surgeon, author, and Yale professor Sherwin B. Nuland talks about the history of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) for treatment of severe major depression and other mental illnesses. He then proceeds to tell about his own recovery from major depression through electroshock therapy back in the 1970s. After his first marriage failed he fell into a deep depression until he could no longer function. When no other treatments worked the doctors attempted electroshock therapy which led to a remarkable recovery. This talk is available on streaming video and downloadable video from TED.

The Uncertain Art: Thoughts on a Life in Medicine

Long-time physician Sherwin B. Nuland presents a provocative and stimulating collection of stories illustrating the vagaries of medical practice over the years. Among the fascinating and probing questions that Nuland investigates are:

---What does the first Hippocratic Oath really mean?

---What happens when knowledge comes before we're ready for it?

---Why does major surgery using only acupuncture work?

---Is there really sympathy between the organs of the body?

---What happens when someone yells, "Is there a doctor in the house?" and you are the doctor?

---What goes through the mind of a heart transplant candidate who doesn't make it?
