Apgar Score Calculator

The Apgar score consists of an overall score assigned to a newborn following the observation and then the evaluation of five specific elements which are heart rate, respiration, tone, skin color, and reactivity. Each of the elements is scored at 0, 1 or 2 points, depending on the conditions observed. The total result allows an overall assessment of the newborn's state of health. The maximum result is 10 points, equivalent to the best possible health condition, while a score below 7 indicates one or more failures.

A = Appearance (coloration)

P = Pulse (heart rate)

G = Grimace (responsiveness to stimuli)

A = Activity (muscle tone)

R = Respiration (respiratory efforts)
