Diagnostic Tests » APGAR



APGAR: The APGAR is a brief screening test given to newborns 1 and 5 minutes after birth; breathing effort, heart rate, muscle tone, reflexes, and skin color are evaluated. On a scale of 1 to 10, a normal score is 8 or higher, while a score below 8 suggests the baby needs assistance and below 5 suggests urgent care is needed. The child may have a low score at the 1 minute mark and a higher (normal) score at the 5 minute mark.
