ASA Physical Status Classification System

1 : A normal healthy patient

2 : A patient with mild systemic disease

3 : A patient with severe systemic disease

4 : A patient with severe systemic disease that is a constant threat to life

5 : A moribund patient who is not expected to survive without the operation
