This is a preliminary report on a method of evaluating recovery from general anesthesia with fifty-four randomly selected anesthetized patients in the Hanyang Medical Center. This method is usefull not only for the reduction of post-anesthetic complications in the recovery room, but is also an excellent training program for residents, interns and nurses in recovery room duties. It is a simple, direct, self-performance, objective test with pencil and paper to measure recovery from general anesthesia. Since this test measures sensory and paychomotor performances, it is valuable as a critical determinant of recovery from anesthesia. Even though this method has several variables dependent upon individual operator skill and tenhicque with regard to surgical procedures and medications administered, it provides an excellent measure of recovery from clinical general anesthesia and may also serve as a medicolegal record for one-day surgical out-patients.
