Comment:The APGAR score was developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar to quickly assess the status of newborn children. It is determined based on scoing five criteria (Appearance, Pulse, Grimace, Activity, Respiration) on a scale of zero to two each and summing the five values. A score of 7 and above is considered normal, 4 to 6 low, and 3 or less critically low. The 1-minute score is used to assess how well the neonate tolerated the birthing process, and the 5-minute score is used to assess how well the neonate is adapting to the postnatal environment.
