  Shock Treatment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shock Treatment was the less successful and critically panned follow-up to the classic cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show (RHPS).
Shock Treatment features several of the cast members and characters of the original film, but appearing in different roles.
Ironically, Shock Treatment was originally scripted to take place in realistic settings around the town of Denton, but a strike in Hollywood forced the production to move to the UK and film on a drastically reduced budget.

 THE MERCK MANUAL, Sec. 16, Ch. 204, Shock
Shock: A state in which blood flow to and perfusion of peripheral tissues are inadequate to sustain life because of insufficient cardiac output or maldistribution of peripheral blood flow, usually associated with hypotension and oliguria.
Cardiogenic shock is suggested by engorged neck veins, signs of pulmonary congestion, and a gallop rhythm; however, in many patients with cardiogenic shock, these signs are absent.
Shock unresponsive to volume replacement may be due to insufficient volume administration in the presence of ongoing blood loss or may be due to complicating factors (eg, coexisting cardiogenic shock due to myocardial damage or septic shock).

 Shock
Shock is a medical emergency in which the organs and tissues of the body are not receiving an adequate flow of blood.
Shock is caused by three major categories of problems: cardiogenic (meaning problems associated with the heart's functioning); hypovolemic (meaning that the total volume of blood available to circulate is low); and septic shock (caused by overwhelming infection, usually by bacteria).
The prognosis of an individual patient in shock depends on the stage of shock when treatment was begun, the underlying condition causing shock, and the general medical state of the patient.

He was led to try its use in the I treatment of schizophrenia, and the Vienna Clinic, which had seen the first introduction of the malarial treatment of general paralysis, provided him with the patients to experiment on.
On it are shown half- hourly records of pulse and respiration rate during treatment, the amount of sweating, the amounts of insulin and glucose given each day, the time of onset of sopor and coma and the time taken to come round after interruption.
The pathology of the condition is unknown; but treatment must be directed towards facilitating the entry of glucose into the brain cells, combating the alkalosis and anoxia, and restoration of the circulation to its maximal efficiency.

This response occurs secondary to an increased release of norepinephrine and decreased baseline vagal tone (regulated by the baroreceptors in the carotid arch, aortic arch, left atrium, and pulmonary vessels).
ADH is released from the posterior pituitary gland in response to a decrease in BP (as detected by baroreceptors) and a decrease in the sodium concentration (as detected by osmoreceptors).

May 15, 2002 -- A shock treatment commonly used to blast kidney stones and other calcium deposits into pieces may provide relief to men who suffer from a hard-to-treat penile condition.
A new study shows shock wave therapy can effectively reduce pain on erection and improve penile angle for men with Peyronie's disease.

It takes place in Denton, which is conceived as a giant austere television studio (Its look is similar to that of the cult t.v.
If RHPS was a cinematic embodiment of the seventies, chiefly in its focus on sexual ambiguity and freedom represented by folks like David Bowie and Mick Jagger, then Shock Treatment was a similar embodiment of the 80’s, the most narcissistic and materialistic decade in memory.

This results in a shock wave of pressurized air molecules, which form a cone-shaped sheath around and behind the plane.
This cone-shaped shock wave wouldn't be a problem if it lost its strength as it moved away from the plane.
And when that shock wave, traveling at the speed of sound, sweeps past you on the surface, you hear and feel the release of the pressure that the shock wave has built up as a great BOOM-BOOM.

 ECT, Electroconvulsive Shock Treatment, Brain Damage - Psychiatry's Legacy
Psychiatric treatment never addresses the person themselves, their problems, and what could be done to help them handle the problems they actually have with their own mind and life.
Before heavy tranquilizers and muscle relaxers were used to render the patient completely immobile, shock treatments often caused broken vertebrae due to the severity of the force involved with electric shock.
In fact, it is the harm caused by the "treatment" which actually produces the "cure" and not any imaginary correction of the elusive "chemical imbalance" or "neurological disorder".

 DonEllisMusic.com -- Don Ellis Recordings -- Shock Treatment
Shock Treatment also contains Ellis's first recording utilizing a vocal group as part of the ensemble on selections titled "Star Children" and "Night City." The 7/4 selection titled "The Tihai" was presumably motivated by Ellis's studies with Hari Har Rao and illustrates Ellis's liberated use of rhythmic superimpositions over meters with exotic time signatures.
Tihai is an Indian musical term that describes a thrice-repeated rhythm played in such a manner that the last note of the phrase is elided with the first beat of a new measure.
Electric Bath and Shock Treatment are closely related in their musical approach — similar to the close relationship of Live at Monterey and Live in 3 2/3 /4 Time.

 Shock Treatment
Shocking the water may, indeed, help prevent the spread of algae, but the true purpose of this periodic treatment is to rid the water of organic compounds that irritate swimmers and bathers and tie up chlorine to prevent it from performing its task as a sanitizer.
Yet the notion persists throughout many corners of the pool and spa industry that occasional, "super" doses of chlorine are necessary, but the exact reason for this is as much a matter of custom and tradition as it is a matter of scientifically based water chemistry.
Non-chlorine shocks are a bit more costly than chlorine compounds, but they eliminate much pool downtime because they work rapidly and do not require time to dissipate.

As far as the similar material goes, Ron Starr cooks on Hank Levy's "A New Kind of Country," Don takes a soulful solo on "Homecoming," and the echoplex is utilized on the creepy yet enchanting "Milo's Theme." "Star Children" is equally as creepy, and features the vocal group once again, ooohing and ahhhing.
There's an overall aesthetic to Shock Treatment, very science-fiction-esque, that isn't really apparent on any other of Don's albums (save but the "Open Beauty" track on Electric Bath, and to a lesser extent "Child of Ecstacy").

The electric shock is administered for as little as a fraction of a second to as long as several seconds.
The shocks are then continued for a few weeks (sometimes several times a day) to make the procedure 'take,' that is, to damage the brain sufficiently so that the individual will not remember, at least for several months, the problems that led to his being shocked in the first place.
This brain damage includes cerebral hemorrhages (abnormal bleeding), edema (excessive accumulation of fluid), cortical atrophy (shrinkage of the cerebral cortex, or outer layers of the brain), dilated perivascular spaces in the brain, fibrosis (thickening and scarring), gliosis (growth of abnormal tissue), and rarefied and partially destroyed brain tissue.
