Balanced anesthesia is being equilibrated with the maintenance of light planes of anesthesia and the relatively free utilization of muscle relaxants to prevent untoward movement of the patient in response to surgical stimuli. However, muscle relaxants per se do not contributes to the state of hypnosis or analgesia. Therfore, awareness during modern anesthesia must be seriously taken. We have given anesthesia in 175 cases for cesarean section in order to investigate intraoperative awareness. Among the 175 anesthetic cases, 13 cases had awareness of pain and 19 cases had auditor awareness. Accordingly the total incidence of awareness in our investigation was 16% which was significantly high and should be considered in clinical anesthesia practice.
