The Apgar score is a system for point score evaluation of the physical condition of a newborn one minute after birth.

The maximum total score is 10. A score of seven or less indicates a problem requiring immediate attention if the baby is to survive.

The test may be repeated at 5 or more minutes after birth in order to judge recovery of infants with low scores
