Apgar scale points or assessment


Explanation:
A scale used to assess the viability of a newborn. The highest is 10 points. The assessment is given for the color of the newborn -red is better than bluish - , breathing and other characteristics. It is done twice, inmediately after the delivery and some time later which is supposed to improve. Normal first assessment of generally healthy baby is 7-8 and 8-9 on second assessment.
Good luck!

APGAR scale


Explanation:
APGAR stands for:
A - Activity (Muscle Tone)
P - Pulse
G - Grimace (Reflex Irritability)
A - Appearance (Skin Color)
R - Respiration
A score is given for each sign at one minute and five minutes after the birth. If there are problems with the baby an additional score is given at 10 minutes. A score of 7-10 is considered normal, while 4-7 might require some resuscitative measures, and a baby with apgars of 3 and below requires immediate resuscitation.
For particular APGAR points see http://www.childbirth.org/articles/apgar.html
