Well, this is one reason sedation MUST "MUST," be closely monitored. I am wondering if anybody while in the ICU/ITU has ever woken up when sedation has worn off and been unable to move, with total utter paralysis. I'm curious if you have ever experience. I will tell you from myself. IT IS A PROFOUNDLY HORRIBLE FEELING. Thank you for reading this message. God's blessings be with you, your loved ones, and the Critical Care Staff that took care of you in the hospital. THANK YOU1!
