Can somebody get electro cardioversion without anasthesia, to save money. Bad heart.?

Possible ? Yes. Practical, no.
Honestly, most cardiologists will refuse to do it without at least some anesthesia.
Edit : Likely because it's an incredibly painful procedure. The stress & pain of it could well cause a heart attack in someone with a bad heart.

Agree with ckm1956.
It is highly unlikely it would be done without anaesthesia.Source(s): Cardiac Physiologist
