Interestingly, it could be argued that having a cardiac pacemaker in situ may to some degree be protective, since it is known that ECT per se, especially when delivered using the bifrontotemporal electrode position, can result in a significant cholinergic surge with subsequent severe bradycardia or even asystole (20,21).
