The aldrete score is a score of 1 through 10 assessing a patient after anesthesia. Most post anesthesia units use the Aldrete score as a discharge criteria. If a patient's score is 8 or below the doctor must be notified and the patient is not dischargable. The Aldrete score assesses level of consciousness, respirtory status, circulatory status, pain, and nausea.
