Abstract

(Abstracted from BMJ 2018;360:k207)

Population-based studies have found an increased risk of epilepsy and cerebral palsy (CP) associated with infants found to have a low Apgar score. Research has found a temporal association, as a low Apgar score at 5 minutes has been found to confer a higher risk than a correspondingly low Apgar score at 1 minute.
