A postanesthetic recovery score to provide objective information on the phsical condition of patients arriving in the recovery room after anesthesia. The status of the patients was judged after arriving in the recovery room and every 30minutes thereafter, until their discharge to the ward or Intensive Care Unit. To study this method, 324 patients were selected at random to include as many variants of anesthesia as possible. The patients were transported to the recovery room within 10 minutes of the completion of the anesthesia; Once there, the first score was made by the anesthesiologist. Thereafter, the evaluation was made by the same anesthesiologist. Depending on the length of stay in recovery room, this evaluation was repeated 30, 60, and 90 minutes after the patients arrival. The various signs were evaluated. The independent variables such as age, sex, physical status, anesthetic agents or technics, type of surgery, use of muscle relaxants, duration of anesthesia were correlated with the proportional number of patients receiving top or safe score 10, 9 or 8, and those given 7 or less, which were considered low or dangerous.
