A study of the relationship between Goodwin's high-risk score and fetal outcome.
Correlation between Goodwin's high-risk score and Apgar score was studied in 266 pregnancies managed with the use of the information from clinical monitoring. The correlation coefficients between Goodwin's score and Apgar scores were -0.3178 for one-minute Apgar scores and -0.2668 for five-minute Apgar scores. Both are significant at the level of p less than 0.001. When the patients were divided into two groups by Goodwin's score, fetuses of the group with the higher score (greater than or equal to 4) were significantly more acidotic than those of the group with the lower score. Therefore, Goodwin's high-risk scoring system is simple and useful in the selection of potential risk patients.
