The predictive capacity of American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Status (ASA PS) score in burn patients
from Journal of Burn Care & Research
Advances in burn care continues to improve survival rates and patient outcomes. There are several burn prognostic tools used to predict mortality and outcomes, however, none include patient comorbidities. We used the American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status score, as a surrogate measure for comorbidities, and evaluated its role in predicting mortality and outcomes in adult burn patients undergoing surgery.
