Awake Under Anesthesia

This is a scary thought.  In November, the movie Awake came out which talked about 1 in 700 patients being aware of the entire procedure while under anesthesia.  I don’t either way, but that seems like a very scary statistic that would have people revolting.

In response, the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists put out a website which provides counterpoints to the movie.  There is also an organization called Anesthesia Awareness Campaign focusing on this issue.
