Incorrect Statement.  —In the Medical News & Perspectives article entitled "Apgar Quartet Plays Perinatologist's Instruments," published in the December 25, 1996, issue of THE Journal (1996;276: 1939-1940), an incorrect statement appears. The concluding phrase in the last sentence of the second paragraph in the first column on page 1940 should be deleted. That sentence should read: "Although it's almost absurdly simple and requires no sophisticated equipment, the Apgar score continues to provide a quantitative measure for evaluating obstetrical outcomes, procedures, and research."
