ASA classification

In 1963 American Society of Anesthesiologists adopted a five category classification system for assessing a patient before surgery. A sixth category was later added.

IA normal healthy patient.
IIA patient with mild systemic disease.
IIIA patient with severe systemic disease.
IVA patient with severe systemic disease that is a constant threat to life.
VA moribund patient who is not expected to survive without the operation.
VIA declared brain-dead patient whose organs are being removed for donor purposes.
