I think they are definitely referring to the level of consciousness. I am not able to find anything in the literature that talks about this being specifically validated.
I think there is obviously a sliding scale between totally conscious and totally unconscious under the influence of drugs… I think this is what they must be referring to.
I agree with Sara, I would definitely be checking for a gag reflex in any patient where emesis is a consideration.
