Welcome to the Anesthesia Awareness Registry

When patients can recall events or sensations from their surgeries, even though they were supposed to be asleep at the time, this is called “awareness during general anesthesia”.

The Anesthesia Awareness Registry seeks greater understanding about the causes of this problem.

As of November 30, 2018 there are 345 enrolled subjects.
