I have heard that sometimes one part of the three part anasthetic can run out during surgery (the no feeling pain part). If I understand correctly, there is a no feel part, a sleep part, and a paralyzing part (I don't know the proper names). I heard that they can't tell during surgery without a special monitoring machine. But I would think that even if you are paralyzed, feeling the pain would start an adrenalyn rush, and raise your heart rate and resparation etc. Wouldn't that tip of the surgeon?
