APGAR is used to assess newborns.
7-10 Points: The newborn is active and requires only routine care.
4-6 Points: The newborn will require additional stimulation and oxygen therapy.
0-3 Points: The newborn is not perfusing adequately and assisted ventilations with a bag-valve-mask (BVM) and CPR may be required.
APGAR scores should be completed at 1 minute and 5 minutes after delivery.
