The focus of this systematic review is on contemporary (from 1990) use and practice of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) worldwide. Seventy studies were included: 7 from Australia and New Zealand, 3 Africa, 12 North and Latin America, 33 Europe and 15 Asia. Many patients are still ECT treated without anesthesia today. Large global variation in ECT utilization, administration and practice advocate a need for worldwide sharing of knowledge about ECT, reflection, and learning from each other experiences.
