Personal Fact of Virginia Apgar

Virginia Apgar was a noted obstetrical anaesthesiologist from America, who is best known for her invention of Apgar Score which is a standard and simple method to assess the viability of newborns immediately after birth. This method is followed by doctors to evaluate the health of newborns even today. She was also the first woman to hold the rank of a full professor at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons for anaesthesiology. She was an expert in teratology which was then a new field in the study of birth defects in babies.

Her hard work in the field of medicine resulted in the formation of certain medical measures for mothers and newborns that prevented infant mortality to a great extent. As a child she had an early interest in science and medicine which she mostly inherited from her father.

She decided to become a physician during her high school years as she was exceptionally good in science. As a student she also possessed endless energy as she participated in seven different sports teams, contributed to school dramatics, worked in the college newspaper and played the violin too. Her incessant enthusiasm to learn new things led her to make a mark for herself in medical history.
