Report, newborn baby apgar score : First 5 Minutes Newborn Apgar Scoring Chart
In a newborn Apgar scoring chart, a score higher than 7 means that the baby is in perfect condition, while a score between 5 or 6 means that the baby is less healthy and might need help with their respiratory system, and a score below 5 means that the baby must have resuscitation help from the hospital or the doctor that is taking care of her or him.
