    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    Unless telling a cute little story would bring them out of a coma ?

    Is the original poster refering to anasthetics ?

    No need to take drugs to enter into coma. A good amount of alcohool is more than sufficiant.
    Needless to say that it can kill you

    Sure Thiopental is good But be sure you need to intubate immediately, becuase it causes apnea But I think the most safe method ot total anesthesis is inhalation anesthesis . . . But depends on the procedure. Uf you are about to operate brain you just need local anesthesis 8)
