Testing of ECT Devices Recommended

An advisory panel to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration decided on Friday that electroconvulsive (also known as "electroshock") devices should be subject to the same tough testing as other medical devices entering the market.
Does it surprise you at all that these devices are not currently undergoing the same type of safety testing as other medical devices?
