American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Classification

Higher ASA class was associated with a substantial increase in risk when an ASA class of II or greater was compared with an ASA class of less than II (odds ratio, 4.87 [CI, 3.34 to 7.10]) and when an ASA class of III or greater was compared with an ASA class of less than III
