Next, APGAR scores
from each individual family member were aggregated into indices.
If the Apgar scores
are low, a healthy set of gases shows that your interventions were timely and appropriate.
at 1st minute were affected significantly by fetal body weight (p=0.
No statistical difference was found between the two groups, although much higher occurrence of low Apgar scores
at 1 min in neonates with nuchal cord.
Neotatal complications: First-minute Apgar scores
were as follows: 3 neonates of group Ph (8.
The perinatal outcome measures were 1 and 5 minute Apgar scores
less than 7 , admission to nursery , early neonatal mortality ( neonatal death within 7days of delivery), neonatal morbidity ( birth asphyxia, birth trauma, respiratory distress syndrome, infection) and were recorded on a semi structured performa.
Major finding: There were no significant differences between 2004-2008 and 2010 data in 5-minute APGAR scores
After consent and enrollment their detailed history including peri-natal history, Apgar score
, resuscitation measures, problems and outcome were recorded on a pre-designed study proforma.
at 1-5 min, pH, Pvcoz, base excess, and respiratory distress syndrome incidence were significantly (P <0.
There were no significant differences in meconium below the cords, mecouium aspiration, Apgar scores
<7, neonatal intensive care unit admissions, or perinatal mortality.
Infant Apgar scores
and medical care also tend to differ between the groups, she noted.
Tone was normal by the time of hospital discharge, and Apgar scores
rose by 5 minutes of age, although they remained lower than for infants of afebrile women.
