At 5 minutes after birth low Apgar score of <3 and 3 to 6 was significantly associated with abruptio placenta in 17 (42.5%) compared to only 1 (2.5%) controls and this difference was statistically highly significant (p-value<0.001).
Similarly, 1 RCT (39 women) that compared amniotomy with intent to preserve membranes in spontaneous labors that became prolonged found no difference in cesarean section, maternal satisfaction, or Apgar scores.
With respect to the health status of the newborn at birth, there was an association between neonatal death and birth weight--between 1,500 and 2,499 grams (OR = 5.34, IC = 2.99-9.54) and under 1,500 grams (OR = 103.35, IC = 42.33-252.34)--and Apgar score in the first minute of life--between zero and three (OR = 47.18, IC = 23.00-96.77) and four and six (OR = 27.07, IC = 12.78-57.32).
Meconium stained liquor had its impact on APGAR score. The trace of CTG as late and variable deceleration was mostly observed.
Regarding the neonatal outcomes, the Apgar score at 5 minutes (p = 0.001), pO2 (p = 0.007), and umbilical cord arterial pH (p < 0.001) were lower, and pCO2 (p < 0.001) was higher in macrosomia group than in normal group.
The newborns were evaluated in terms of Apgar score at 1 minute and at 5 minutes, babies need resuscitation and need of neonatal intensive care unit admissions were also noted.
Thus, the calculation of the Apgar score for 'access to larger Community' across the Hume region was calculated:
The study also showed that the risk of LBW baby and low Apgar score at 5 min were 1.99 and 1.55 times more among anemic mothers, respectively.
Moreover, birth weight < 2 500 g (p = 0.038) and low Apgar score (< 7) (p =0.010) at one minute were independently associated with mortality [Table 3].
Onset time of analgesia, blood pressure, heart rate, umbilical artery pH, fetal heart rate abnormalities, and Apgar scores were noted and analyzed.
