APGAR Scoring System for Neonates

APGAR Scoring System for Neonates

APGAR scoring system is used immediately after birth in order to determine neonate's heart rate, muscle tone, skin color, respiratory rate, and reflexes. A score of less than 5 at 5 and 10 minutes increases the risk of cerebral palsy. APGAR Score is not used to calculate the risk of mortality in neonates.
