No worries: The doctors want their cardiac ablation patient completely out so that she won't feel a thing, won't move around, and won't recall anything. That means she goes into the heart cath lab, gets the medication, goes to sleep, wakes up 1 second later (it usually feels that way) and doesn't recall the procedure happening at all. No worries.
