From Apgar to ADOS

Apgar
Yesterday, the Google doodle was an homage to Dr. Virginia Apgar who created the scores used to this day to test a newborn's health in the moments after birth. 

From cnet.com: During the 1930s and '40s, Dr. Virginia Apgar noticed a troubling trend involving newborns.

While the infant mortality rate in the US had declined, the rate of infant deaths within the first 24 hours after birth remained constant. As an obstetric anesthesiologist, Apgar was able to identify physical characteristics that could distinguish healthy newborns from those in trouble.

Apgar's observations led to the development in 1952 of the Apgar score, a quick and convenient method for immediately evaluating how well the newborn weathered the birthing process, especially the effects of obstetric anesthesia.

To honor Apgar's contribution to neonatology -- the medical care of newborn infants -- Google dedicated its Doodle Thursday to the doctor on her 109th birthday.

But how far have we come for US babies? Sure, we can test their health with the Apgar. But we remain at the bottom of the pack for first day mortality. From a 2013 National Geographic story

In the United States, babies are 50 percent more likely to die on the same day they were born than in all of the other industrialized countries combined, according to the report. Each year, nearly 11,300 babies die on the day they were born in the United States, making American babies twice as likely to die in their first 24 hours as European Union babies.

My girls scored  high on their Apgars. I'll bet yours did too.

Kim-my son scored high on his APGAR scores too and he was perfectly normal....until we got the horrible autism diagnosis when he was four years old. All his doctors say is there is no proof that vaccines caused his autism because even though his APGAR scores were high there was obviously a serious problem known as autism that he was born with and you just didn't know it yet! SURE!

Laura: Thanks for the link. Sounds like she was a walking, breathing horror show.

I put up my website conradsimon.org in April 2000. Within a few weeks I received many emails from midwives and retired obstetricians asking how soon after birth Conrad's umbilical cord was clamped. He was on the other side of the delivery room being worked on by a resuscitation team. So clearly he was disconnected from placental oxygen before he was breathing.

However, he was assigned high Apgar scores based on his response to resuscitation. The protocol to clamp the cord immediately after birth was begun in the mid 1980s. This can cause harm, and hep-B, vitamin K, or jaundice can exacerbate the harm, which I have tried to explain over the past 18 years.

Uhhh...”3” doesn’t quite cover the “ripple effects” of her vaccine advocacy.

When our 'tragedy' first happened, a family friend whomis a nurse, asked ..what was his Apgar rate..? We didn't know and don't think we ever asked but it didn't matter anyway. He was given the two newborn shots just hours before going home when he was barely 24 hours old. Mother and I knew nothing about these shots so the nurse who asked if Mother wanted to have her first born to get the first vaccines,,she thought it was something good he needed...so,she consented. He didn't develop normally and the horrors we went thru when he was first brought home were startling. He did develop faster in talking, at age of 9 months, he said, clearly, dada, mom, bye bye, etc. But he couldn't sit up alone. From there it was downhill. Tho a happy and pleasant baby after the first month, as he aged to a toddler, he had no speech, screamed a lot, etc. So Apgar scores would have been no help at all....unless we knew enough to use them in comparing to what he became.

An infant born with a strong robust immune system might even be more at risk for developing Autism and other illnesses than an infant with a less robust immune system. This is Because the ingredients added to vaccines to "Trick" the body into an immune response and inflammation (Excipients) works so well that the baby might have their brains and bodies Inflamed for the rest of their lives. Once the brain develops Encephalitis, parts of it become overreactive while parts become under-reactive. Thus we see the disjointed behaviors stemming and stimming from both the brain and the gut.

Yeah, my two were at the top of the APGAR, so well they could almost get up and walk. LOL. After the third DPT vaccine though for the youngest - he had to relearn to walk, never road a tricycle; though he tried with all his heart, and end up putting his head down on his handle bars and just sobbing. Oh and 32 years later still finds using scissors difficult.


The heads of the CDC hearts should be broken daily, but instead they have no heart or any kind of "kindness" about them.

I think the question of how many of the 11,300 babies that die on the day they were born .. had been subject to vaccines in the womb .. flu & DPT for instance .. is at the very least worth exploring to eliminate vaccines during pregnancy as a contributing factor to explain WHY babies born in the UNITED STATES have a "50%" chance of dying on the same day they were born .. as well as .. making certain all those tragic deaths of newborn infants had NOT RECEIVED HEP B SHOT WITHIN HOURS OF BIRTH.

With such a DISMAL infant mortality rate among children on the FIRST DAY OF LIFE .. how in God's name can public health officials defend administering the HEP B within hours of birth to any child on the FIRST DAY OF LIFE?
