Apgar Score Calculator - Newborn Child Care

Apgar score is a simple and repeatable method to quickly and summarily assess the health of newborn children immediately after child birth. It is determined by evaluating the newborn baby on five simple criteria on a scale from zero to two, then summing up the five values thus obtained. The resulting Apgar score care of a child ranges from zero to 10.
