262 Possible Causes for Apgar Score Low

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    1,3 Five‐minute Apgar score seven Study population RR 2.03 (0.19 to 21.87) 147 (1 RCT) VERY LOW 1,4 14 per 1000 27 per 1000 (3 to 296) Moderate 14 per 1000 27 per 1000 (3[doi.org] […] quality for all outcomes "recurrent pyelonephritis, RUTI (cystitis), preterm birth ( 37 weeks), birthweight 2500 (g), birthweight (g), five‐minute Apgar score less than seven[doi.org] (g) The mean birthweight (g) in the control group was 0 The mean birthweight (g) in the intervention group was 113 lower (327.2 lower to 101.2 higher) ‐ 147 (1 RCT) VERY LOW[doi.org]

  • Meconium Aspiration Syndrome

    There was a striking association between low 5-minute Apgar score and MASINT.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical findings Low APGAR scores; tachypnoea, dyspnoea and cyanosis, which either resolves in the first three days of life, or if aspirated meconium was significant, patchy[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Baby appears limp, with a low Apgar score. Breathing is rapid, laboured, or absent. Signs of postmaturity (eg, peeling skin) are present.[patient.info]

  • Polyhydramnios

    The presence of polyhydramnios significantly increased the rate of preterm delivery, low birth weight or very low birth weight, low one- and five-minute Apgar scores, fetal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] APGAR score, primary cesarean section (C/S), preterm delivery ( RESULTS: Low birth weight ( 4000 g), NICU admission, fetal distress, fetal death, lower 1-min and 5-min APGAR[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSION: A significant linear association exists between AFI   20 and perinatal complications such as perinatal mortality, low Apgar scores and preterm labor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Abruptio Placentae

    We analyzed which FHR patterns appeared more frequently in cases of low 5-min Apgar score, low cord arterial pH, and large separation.[dx.doi.org] A low Apgar score ( 7) at 5 minutes (odds ratio, 19.8; 95% confidence interval, 2.0 to 197.8) was associated with increased risk of adverse outcome in the logistic regression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Adverse fetal outcomes associated with abruptio placentae include low birth weight (OR 5.9; 95% CI 3.9-8.7), perinatal death (OR 17.6; 95% CI 11.3-27.3) and low Apgar score[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy

    At birth, the baby was in serious conditions with a low Apgar score (always 3 at 1, 5, and 10 minutes) and severe mixed acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The scores are broken down as follows: 1-3 points: Critically low 4-6 points: Below normal 7 points: Normal APGAR score If the baby’s APGAR scores are low and remain low,[hiehelpcenter.org] However, most infants with low Apgar scores will not develop cerebral palsy. There are many potential causes for low Apgar scores.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Complication of Procedure

    Low APGAR scores: Low APGAR scores can be the result of anesthesia, fetal distress before the delivery or lack of stimulation during delivery (Vaginal birth provides natural[americanpregnancy.org]

  • Labor and Delivery Complication

    Low APGAR scores: Low APGAR scores can be the result of anesthesia, fetal distress before the delivery or lack of stimulation during delivery (Vaginal birth provides natural[americanpregnancy.org] A low Apgar score is a significant risk factor for Cerebral Palsy.[cerebralpalsy.org] […] age, and low Apgar scores.[journals.lww.com]

  • Multiparity

    Grand multiparity and low birth weight were independently associated with a low Apgar score (OR, 2.4; 95%, CI 1.4-4.2 for GM; OR, 4.2; 95% CI, 2.3-7.8) for low birth weight[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Considering fetal and neonatal complications the risk of a low Apgar-score after 5 min. is higher, perinatal death is less frequent.[eurekaselect.com] Low 5 th minutes APGAR score was comparable in both groups which goes to the finding by Nassar AH et al.[omicsonline.org]

  • Sepsis Neonatorum

    There are 36 neonates with low apgar score at 1 minute (59%).[ejournal3.undip.ac.id] The highest rates occur in Low-birth-weight (LBW) infants Infants with depressed function at birth as manifested by a low Apgar score Minorities Males[msdmanuals.com] Apgar score ( 6 at 1 or 5 minutes) Maternal fever greater than 38 C Maternal urinary tract infection (UTI) Poor or no prenatal care Poor maternal nutrition Low socioeconomic[study.com]

  • Fetal Distress in Labor

    […] decelerations were predictive of low Apgar scores.[journals.lww.com] This can cause potential complications such as premature birth, low birth weight, low APGAR scores (the test used to check baby’s wellbeing after birth), decreased oxygen[bellybelly.com.au] Seven of eight infants with markedly elevated lactate levels had both fetal distress and very low Apgar scores [12] .[wikigenes.org]
