Large trials have demonstrated that around 1 to 2 per 1000 patients experience some form of awareness. The majority of these do not feel pain although around one third did. The most traumatic case of anesthesia awareness is full consciousness during surgery with pain and explicit recall of intra-operative events. The patient may feel the pain or pressure of surgery, hear conversations, or feel as if they cannot breathe. The patient may be unable to communicate any distress because they have been given a paralytic/muscle relaxant. A fully paralyzed patient is unable to move, speak, blink the eyes, or otherwise respond to the pain. If anesthesia awareness does occur, about 42% feel the pain of the operation, 94% experience panic/anxiety (sometimes because they cannot breathe), and 70% experience lasting psychological symptoms. Currently, the anesthesia provider community accepts that anesthesia awareness occurs yet is in denial about its frequency. Most studies show its incidence is 1-2 ...

Despite decades of common use for surgeries of all kinds, the precise mechanism through which general anesthesia works on the body remains a mystery. New research led by the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania investigated the common anesthetic sevoflurane and found that it binds at multiple key cell membrane protein locations that may contribute to the induction of the anesthetic response. Their findings will appear online in PNAS.

M Covarrubias, T B Vyas, L Escobar, A Wei. J. Biol. Chem., 1995 Aug 18 , 270, 19408-16.

Sci. 90, 6957-6960), we found that low concentrations of ethanol (17-170mM) selectively inhibited a noninactivating cloned K+ channel encoded by Drosophila Shaw2. Here, we have conducted equilibrium dos-inhibition experiments, single channel recording, and mutagenesis in vitro to study the mechanism underlying the inhibition of Shaw2K+ channels by a homologous series of n-alkanols (ethanol to 1-hexanol). The results showed that: (i) these alcohols inhibited Shaw2 whole-cell currents, the equilibrium dose-inhibition relations were hyperbolic, and competition experiments revealed the presence of a discrete site of action, possibly a hydrophobic pocket; (ii) this pocket may be part of the protein ...

*  Long term neurotoxicity by general anesthetics in infants | SmartTots
Development of neurotoxicity in infants and children who had been exposed to general anesthetics has garnered attention in recent times and sparked vigorous debates. The effects range from learning disability, cognitive defects to development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease in later life. Theories to explain these changes are calcium dysregulation leading to apoptosis, altered neurogenesis, accumulation of degenerative proteins like β amyloid and many others. A large volume of literature has accumulated in the form of animal and human studies which have implicated general anesthetic drugs like ketamine, propofol, volatile agents, and benzodiazepines in the development of neurodegenerative conditions in later life. These studies being retrospective are associated with a good deal of methodological flaws. Hence a direct cause effect relationship is yet to be firmly established. In the present scenario, ...

The situation that occurs when a patient under general anesthesia becomes aware of some or all events during surgery or a procedure, and has direct recall of those events. Because of the routine use of neuromuscular blocking agents (also called paralytics) during general anesthesia, the patient is often unable to communicate with the surgical team. Continuous monitoring of the patient means by considering the patient physiology should necessary to control risk factors of anesthesia. In some high-risk surgeries such as cardiac, trauma, and emergency caesarean deliveries, using a deep anesthetic may not be in the best interest of the patient. In these and other critical or emergency situations, awareness might not be completely avoidable. ...

A general anaesthetic (which puts you to sleep during your operation) can affect your coordination and reasoning skills, so avoid alcohol, operating machinery or signing legal documents for at least 48 hours. You cannot drive legally within 48 hours of a general anaesthetic. It will be at least one to two weeks before you can drive after keyhole surgery and two to six weeks after open surgery. You must not drive before you are pain free. Contact your car insurance company before returning to the wheel. It usually takes 10-15 days before you can get back to normal activities such as walking, shopping and sport. You may recover faster if you have had keyhole surgery. You should be able to return to work after two to four weeks, depending on the extent of surgery and your type of work..

*  Evaluation of Interventions to Improve Pain Relief, Perceived Anxiety and Recovery in Participants Receiving Office Based...
In recent years there has been a large increase in the amount of surgical procedures now available on an outpatient basis (Gilmartin & Wright, 2008). This is due largely to advances in surgical methods and also in response to increasing demands on the National Health Service (M. Mitchell, 2010). This shift impacts patients and health care professionals alike who must adapt to home based recovery and symptom management (Stomberg, Segerdahl, Rawal, Jakobsson, & Brattwall, 2008). This research will investigate patient's expectations, experiences, recovery and satisfaction with office based surgery conducted in a private clinic.. The advancement of office based surgery has led to a rise in the number of procedures completed under local rather than general anaesthetic (Chukmaitov, Devers, Harless, Menachemi, & Brooks, 2011). Resultantly, the number of patients who are conscious during surgery has risen. The environment of the operating theatre must now be considered and nurses are become ...
