The purpose of preoperative evaluation is not to give
medical clearance, but rather to perform an evaluation
of the patients current medical status; make
recommendations concerning the evaluation,
management, and risk of cardiac problems over the
entire perioperative period; and provide a clinical risk
profile that the patient, primary physician,
anesthesiologist, and surgeon can use in making
treatment decisions

Preoperative Evaluation

Anesthetic drugs and techniques have profound effects

on human physiology. Hence, a focused review of all
major organ systems should be completed prior to

Goals of the preoperative evaluation is to ensure that the

patient is in the best (or optimal) condition.

Patients with unstable symptoms should be postponed

for optimization prior to elective surgery.

ASA Physical Status Classification System

medical status mortality

ASA I normal healthy patient without organic, biochemical, 0.06-0.08%
or psychiatric disease
ASA II mild systemic disease with no significant impact on Unlikely to have
daily activity e.g. mild diabetes, controlled an impact
hypertension, obesity . 0.27-0.4%
ASA III severe systemic disease that limits activity e.g. angina, Probable impact
COPD, prior myocardial infarction 1.8-4.3%
ASA IV an incapacitating disease that is a constant threat to Major impact
life e.g. CHF, unstable angina, renal failure ,acute MI, 7.8-23%
respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation
ASA V moribund patient not expected to survive 24 hours e.g. 9.4-51%
ruptured aneurysm
ASA VI brain-dead patient whose organs are being harvested

For emergent operations, you have to add the letter E after the classification.
