 Anesthesia awareness definition - Medical Dictionary definitions of popular medical terms
Anesthesia awareness: The situation that occurs when a patient under general anesthesia becomes aware of some or all events during surgery or a procedure, and has direct recall of those events.
The incidence of awareness is reported to be greater in patients in which the dose of general anesthetic must be smaller and carefully titrated to decrease significant side effects, for example, a patient who is hemodynamically unstable.
Factors contributing to the risk of anesthesia awareness include the increasing use of intravenous (IV) delivery of anesthesia, as opposed to inhalation anesthesia, and the premature lightening of anesthesia at the end of procedures to facilitate turnover of the operating room.

Yet he does not notice that awareness is the primary source of self experience and concludes: `The self then, quite analogous to the representations of objects, is a content of the mental apparatus' (Kohut, 1971).
Awareness is considered to exist independent of contents and this `pure consciousness' is accessible — potentially — to every one.
If awareness is a fundamental in the universe — as proposed most recently by Herbert (1994), Goswami (1993) and Chalmers (1995) — then it is `I' that is fundamental, as well, with all its ontological implications.

 LD OnLine :: Phonological Awareness: Instructional and Assessment Guidelines
Phonemic awareness is the understanding that words are made up of individual sounds or phonemes and the ability to manipulate these phonemes either by segmenting, blending, or changing individual phonemes within words to create new words.
Moreover, instruction in phonological awareness is beneficial for most children and seems to be critical for others, but the degree of explicitness and the systematic nature of instruction may need to vary according to the learner's skills (Smith, Simmons, and Kameenui, 1998), especially for students at risk for reading difficulties.
Assessment in phonological awareness serves essentially two purposes: to initially identify students who appear to be at risk for difficulty in acquiring beginning reading skills and to regularly monitor the progress of students who are receiving instruction in phonological awareness.

 Phonemic Awareness: An Important Early Step in Learning To Read
This Digest discusses the concept of the awareness that spoken language is made up of discrete sounds, why this concept is so important to early childhood educators, its relation to the debate on the best type of reading instruction, and finally, teaching methods that may help children in developing such an awareness.
Although phonological awareness appears to be a necessary condition for learning to read (children who do not develop phonological awareness do not go on to learn how to read), it is not a sufficient condition.
Teachers need to be aware of instructional activities that can help their students become aware of phonemes before they receive formal reading instruction, and they need to realize that phonemic awareness will become more sophisticated as students' reading skills develop.
