She is best known as the inventor of the 'Apgar score, ' a method to summarise the birth of newborns.
Doctors score each part score of zero to two, with the highest total score being 10. The scores help doctors identify whether a baby has health issues requiring extra care. The Apgar test is conducted a minute after birth, and again four minutes later, in order to judge the effectiveness of intervention. However, the number of infant deaths within the first 24 hours after birth stayed constant. She initially studied zoology, chemistry and physiology before attending Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Born in New Jersey in 1909, Apgar always had a keen interest in science. Despite the USA infant mortality rate decreasing overall, a high number of infants were still dying within 24 hours of birth.

Apgar's work on prevention of infant mortality was eventually recognised as she was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in the US. An anesthesiologist by training, she climbed the ranks at New York's Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in the 1930s and '40s, when anesthesiology wasn't recognized as a medical specialty.
