Accidental patient awareness during anesthesia can result in significant patient distress and harm. This prospective cohort study, including 3,115 patients, identified high rates of accidental awareness during general anesthesia for obstetric surgery. In some patients, accidental awareness resulted in distressing experiences, paralysis, or a provisional diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder.
