American Society of Anesthesiology Classification

A system used by anesthesiologists to stratify severity of patients' underlying disease and potential for suffering complications from general anesthesia
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

The three-point assisted anesthesia recovery provided a safe recovery without any catastrophic injury even in complex surgical cases that required prolonged AT or those associated with animals in poor systemic condition (ASA IV and V).

(4,5) She recommends that dental professionals treating clients assessed as ASA II or III proceed with caution and consider implementing a stress reduction protocol prior to treatment; for clients assessed as ASA IV or higher, dental treatment is not recommended until the client's physical health status has improved.
If ASA IV patients (UA or IM) with dental pain are given no treatment, this may aggravate the ischemic attacks due to pain and anxiety, thus leading to increased secretion and release of catecholamines [2-7].
He was of ASA IV status, with a MSCT confirmed fistula between the left main bronchus and esophagus, and metastases in the left lung.

In view of her comorbidity (ASA IV) and the absence of sepsis, the decision was taken to remove the tape and perform bilateral uretrocutaneostomy using minimally invasive techniques.
The exclusion criteria were all paediatric patients age fifteen years and below as well as all patients with any other reason for a higher level of sedation (Ramsay Score of 5-6), such as head injury or neurological pathology; as well as all ASA IV patients, emergencies or above.
Over a five to ten year period postoperatively, survival for ASA I was 8.5 years versus only 1.6 years for ASA IV. Use of the ASA classification to predict postoperative mortality risk can be further enhanced by complementing it with the Short Potable Mental Status Questionnaire (SPMSQ) for assessing cognitive function.
ASA IV patients were more likely to be admitted to HDU.
