In brief: Agpar score

The apgar score is a number from 0 to 10 to indicate the condition of a baby during the first minutes at birth.
It is given at one, 5 and 10 minutes after birth. The higher the number, the healthier and more normal a baby is. Babies with potential problems usually score under 5. The lower the score is, the more aggressive the treatment will be, e.g., initiation of cpr.
