Allan S. Detsy and his team, in 1987, published the first report of a nutritional assessment tool, entitled SGA, that uses clinical judgment to assess nutritional status in preoperative surgical patients and to predict postoperative infections; SGA had the best sensitivity and specificity for predicting infection after surgery.

The original SGA form had clinicians score 5 components of a medical history (i.e., weight change, dietary intake, gastrointestinal symptoms, functional capacity, disease and its relation to nutritional requirements) and 3 components of a brief physical examination (ie, signs of fat and muscle wasting, nutrition-associated alternations in fluid balance). The patient is then assigned a rating of Well nourished (A), moderately undernourished (B), or Severely undernourished (C) by subjective consideration of the data collected in the 8 areas, without adhering to a rigid scoring system. The SGA Toolkit developed by IAPEN also contains 7-point scale SGA.
