Medical situations in which restraints are used?

As a claustrophobic person, I'm really dislike feeling trapped. One topic that always grabs my attention is stories of people being restrained in medical situations. While Googling tells me that restraining patients is rare, I find some anecdotes: arms strapped down before surgery, thermoplastic masks attached to tables for radiation treatment, vacuum pillows, wrist restraints while on a ventilator... So, to satisfy my odd curiosity, can you help me compile a list of situations in which a person might find themselves physically stuck?
