American Society of Anesthesiology patient classification status
ASA I
Normal healthy Pt
ASA II
Pt with mild systemic disease; no functional limitation–eg, smoker with well-controlled HTN
ASA III
Pt with severe systemic disease; definite functional impairment–eg, DM and angina with relatively stable disease, but requiring therapy
ASA IV
Pt with severe systemic disease that is a constant threat to life–eg, DM + angina + CHF; Pts have dyspnea on mild exertion and chest pain
ASA V
Unstable moribund Pt who is not expected to survive 24 hours with or without the operation
ASA VI
Brain-dead Pt whose organs are removed for donation to another
E
Emergency operation of any type, which is added to any of the 6 above categories, as in ASA II E

Patients with age group 18 to 60 years planned for surgical procedure under general anaesthesia with ASA I and ASA II were included in study.
Assessment of the ASA physical status showed that 78% of the TAP and 76% of the II-IH groups were ASA I and 21.56% of the TAP and 23.5% of the II-IH groups were ASA II (Table 1).
Similarly, in our 453-case elderly patient series, we found recurrence and mortality rates of 30.7% and 12.4%, respectively.15 In a single study comparing treatment options according to the ASA scores of patients, Ifversen and Kjaer6 found a lower mortality rate and a longer survival duration in the electively treated group than that of the observed group, even if the median ASA score was lower in the elective surgery group (ASA II vs.
