75%) was less frequent while poor Apgar score in one minute was more frequent when compared with score in five minutes.
Conclusion: Low APGAR score is an important cause of admission to NICU.
The study also showed that the risk of LBW baby and low Apgar score at 5 min were 1.
No consistent difference has been noted in neonatal arterial pH or Apgar scores in babies born to mothers with epidurals.
9) scoring), vasopressor requirements, total amount of fluid administered, incidence of side effects (nausea, vomiting, agitation, respiratory depression, and loss of consciousness), neonatal Apgar scores at 1 and 5 minutes, and duration of sensory and motor block were recorded.
The mortality rate was significantly higher in neonates with a low birth weight < 2 500 g, one minute Apgar score < 7, and pulmonary hemorrhage.
The remaining secondary outcomes including Apgar score, incidence of nausea and vomiting, atropine requirement and need for neonatal intubation were low and there were no differences between the two groups (Table 3).
Fetal outcomes included APGAR score (at 1, 5 and 10 minutes) anemia, jaundice, respiratory distress syndrome, weight of baby, gross congenital anomaly and admission to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), intrauterine growth retardation, prematurity and perinatal death.
Using the definition combining need for BMV, Apgar score <7 at 5 minutes and base deficit >12 mmol/L (representing a truer reflection of intrapartum asphyxia) the incidence was 8.
The study found no increased risk of congenital malformations, stillbirth/neonatal death, preterm delivery, low birth weight, small for gestational age, low Apgar score and neonatal infections.
A doctor evaluates a newborn on five criteria to arrive at the Apgar score, a fast way to gauge the baby's well-being.
While no difference was found in mean gestational age, birth weight, rate of hospitalization, time of hospitalization, frequency of follow-up in the intensive care unit, rates of congenital anomaly and rehospitalization, APGAR score in the 5th minute was significantly higher in the in vitro fertilization group.
