Apgar Testing in Boerne
Apgar tests are typically given to newborns soon after birth, generally on their first doctor’s visit. Apgar is an acronym for appearance, pulse, grimace response, activity, and respiration, making it a fully comprehensive examination of the health of your newborn across these critical metrics. Our Apgar testing is usually given twice, once at one minute after birth, and again at five minutes after birth. If there are concerns about your newborn’s health, more Apgar testing may be conducted to monitor improvement.
