In total, 203 (77.2%) and 60 patients (22.8%) had ASA PS of [less than or equal to] 2 and [greater than or equal to] 3, respectively.
Conversely, the preoperative serum albumin level, the operative time, and the ASA PS were found to be associated with the overall frequency of overall complications (Table 9).
Adult female patients with ASA PS classification I undergoing local excision of breast under admission were enrolled.
No difference of PONV between low- and high-dose of remifentanil in adult female patients with ASA PS classification I undergoing local excision of breast under TIVA was evident.
Similarly the majority of the deaths ([greater than or equal to] 58%) occurred in patients who were classified preoperatively as ASA PS 3-5.
Patient's age, gender, ASA PS, urgency of surgery, type of hospital and grade of anaesthetist are objective variables, and thus likely to accurately represent the patients whose deaths were included in the reports and the circumstances of these deaths.
Four patients had been assessed as ASA PS 1, one as ASA PS 1E and the other two as ASA PS 2 and ASA PS 4E.
Three had been classified as ASA PS 3 and three as ASA PS 4.
