Since then apgar score is being used as an index of asphyxia.
As a result, the abnormal AT group was associated with IUGR, lower Apgar score, and more cases of cesarean section.
Low Apgar score (<7) at 1 and 5 min are also associated with maternal anemia.
The Apgar score at five minutes was documented as a vital parameter in assessing the neonates' well-being.
Relationship between maternal age, fetal birth weight and Apgar scores on 1st and 5th minutes is shown in Table-II.
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.
The effects of SSRI exposure on other outcomes such as preterm delivery, birth weight, and Apgar scores have been less clear.
Secondary outcome measures were time interval from the start of induction to onset of labour (latency period), time interval from the start of induction to delivery (duration of labour), need for oxytocin augmentation, labour complications, Apgar scores at 1 and 5 minutes, and need for neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admission.
