    Hi There,


    I am planning to take the specialty exam. In my coding, I don't have to do the patient status P1 to P6. Any suggestion how I can learn that. Any question on this part in exam please advice. Very much appreciate.

    I do not beleive you assign the status indicators. This is the anesthesiologists duty since it is based on medical factors.
