Jessica Alba and Hayden Christensen star in the new thriller Awake about a man who is awake during surgery and hears his doctors and his wife plotting his own murder. Slate.com has a great article that explains anesthesia awareness and what the facts are. They reference several medical findings on the subject to show that the stat “1 in 700 people are awake during surgery” is far overestimated. However, that’s Hollywood for you.
Check out the article on Slate.com.
Awake is in theaters tomorrow, November 30th.
