A Proposal for a New Method of Evaluation of the Newborn Infant
Description:
In this article, Apgar described her innovative method for assessing the viability of newborn infants by assigning "scores" of 0, 1, or 2 to the infant's respiration, pulse, color, muscle tone, and response to stimuli one minute after birth. This procedure was later known as "Apgar scoring" and is now routinely used in hospitals worldwide.
Presented before the Twenty-Seventh Annual Congress of Anesthetists, Joint Meeting of the International Anesthesia Research Society and the International College of Anesthetists, Virginia Beach, Virginia, September 22-25, 1952.
