ABSTRACT
Ideally, on completion of surgery and anaesthesia, the patient should be awake or easily arousable, protecting the airway, maintaining adequate ventilation and with their pain under control. Time to emerge from anaesthesia is variable, and depends on many factors related to the patient, the type of anaesthetic given and the length of surgery. Unexpected delayed emergence after the use of general anaesthesia has a plethora of causes.
