A Comparative Study between SHAPE Scoring and ASA Grading for Anesthesia Risk Stratification
American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) physical status can provide a better grading outcome for predicting the incidence of intra- and postoperative complications in surgical patients1.Silverman-Holt aggregate preoperative evaluation (SHAPE™) score in which 1 to 5 severity score is assigned for each major organ system, based on information learned from the patient history and physical examination, overcomes limitations of ASA grading2.
