Interpretation:

1 minute and 5 minutes after complete birth of the infant (disregarding the cord and placenta), the five objective signs listed here are evaluated, and each is given a score of 0, 1, or 2. A total score of 10 indicates an infant in the best possible condition. An infant with a score of 0-3 requires immediate resuscitation.

  1. In today's fast-paced world, many parents are working parents. Earlier, it used to be different, usually one parent used to work and the mother used to stay back at home. It was good then but this does not mean it is not as good today. It all comes down to change of perception. Pediatrician Totowa
