Abstract

Ninety-three obstetricians and 79 other health professionals were asked to estimate the likelihood of a normal outcome among infants surviving a five-minute Apgar score of 3 or less, a clinical indicator of moderately severe perinatal asphyxia. The answers given represented an approximately tenfold overestimation of the rate of handicap in comparison with published data.
