dc.descriptionIn this image, a nurse calculates the infant’s Apgar score. In 1953, Virginia Apgar, an obstetrical anesthesiologist, published a paper on a system she had invented to score an infant's health directly after birth. Apgar wrote that, at the time, methods for evaluating newborn infants were highly subjective. Later called Apgar score, her method required a nurse or physician to score an infant in five categories within sixty seconds of the infant’s birth. Those five categories were: the infant's heart rate, how well the infant breathed, how well the infant responded to stimuli, how well the infant's muscles worked, and the coloration of the infant. According to Apgar, the nurse or physician scored each category as zero, one, or two, and those scores were added up. Total scores ranged from zero to ten. Zero indicated the infant was in very poor condition, while ten indicated that the infant was in excellent condition.en_US
