The answer to this is B. This may occur when a person is injected with anesthesia. This is required to make sure that the person will lose some sense of awareness and will lose sensation on certain parts of the body. This is required so that people can undergo surgery in an easier way.

There was a time when people did not use anesthesia while getting surgery and some of them have lost consciousness because of the pain. Some of them have also died because of other complications because of the pain. There are different compounds that are being used to serve as anesthesia right now. Some of them may even be just inhaled in order to work.

There is no respiratory movement in stage 4 of anesthesia, prior to this stage, respiration is depressed but present.
