Ralph R. Greenson

'Sleep-electroshock therapy is a modification of the orthodox electroshock treatment in which the patient is induced to sleep by the intravenous injection of sodium pentothal prior to the application of the electric current. By this means, patients who would themselves have discontinued shock therapy because of fear, and patients who, because of their unmanageable psychomotor reactions, would have to be denied treatment by the physician, have been treated successfully.'
