Emergence delirium: If you're referring to confusion after emerging from anesthesia, known as emergence delirium, it usually only lasts a few minutes. Occasionally children, who are more frequently affected, can be delirious for much longer, usually prompting treatment. If you are referring to ptsd symptoms, from my experience they only last a couple minutes until the patient emerges enough to orient themselves.
