University of Washington seeks to prevent ’awareness’ in surgery

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, February 5, 2008
The University of Washington has created an anesthesia awareness registry to understand how and why awareness--being awake and able to hear or feel what is happening during a surgery--occurs in about one out of every 1,000 surgeries. The registry is a forum for patients from around the country to share their stories of awareness. Physicians then look at their medical records to try to determine if mistakes were made.
