In many cases per year in the United States alone, patients recall the events of surgery. Awareness during general anesthesia is a complication feared by both patients and clinicians alike. This complication reflects our inability to distinguish between consciousness and unconsciousness in a patient who is pharmacologically paralyzed. This book addresses the clinical aspects of awareness, the underlying brain science of consciousness, and the philosophical implications of both.

'… the book is understandable and enjoyable to read, with concise chapters and clear subchapters. The layout is clear and elegant … comprehensive and comprehensible … It provides a fascinating insight into this relatively poorly understood aspect of our day-to-day practice, and we recommend it to all practising anaesthetists.' British Journal of Anaesthesia
'The chapters of the book are arranged to present a great deal of information in a compact and engaging style, with cited references clearly presented. A brief summary is provided at the end of each chapter to highlight and help readers review the major content. The book should be appealing to neuroscientists, anesthesiologists, psychologists, and philosophers, providing an excellent read for anyone who is interested in the mechanism, prevention, and effects of intra-operative awareness.' The American Society of Anesthesiologists
Dr Mashour received his M.D. and Ph.D. in neuroscience from Georgetown University and was awarded Fulbright scholarships for neuroscience research in Berlin and Bonn. He completed his residency and chief residency in anesthesiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, as well as fellowship training in neuroanesthesiology at the University of Michigan. He is currently the Director of Neuroanesthesiology, as well as Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Neurosurgery at the University of Michigan Medical School. His main clinical interests are neuroanesthesiology and neurocritical care. Dr Mashour's major scholarly focus is consciousness and anesthesia. He is credited with developing the cognitive unbinding paradigm of general anesthesia, as well as advocating for the role of anesthesiology in the study of consciousness. In his clinical research, Dr Mashour is the principal investigator of a 30,000-patient study focused on the prevention of awareness during general anesthesia. He has published and lectured extensively on the subjects of consciousness, awareness, and anesthetic mechanisms. Dr Mashour is the recipient of numerous awards for his work as a clinician, scholar, and educator.
