I just read an ebook that I really got into. The language was clear and intelligent, there were no typos, and no grammar errors.
There was offspring of a human and an orangutan, kind of brain-hurty right there, but OK. Species with different numbers of chromosomes can produce offspring sometimes, and there were all kinds of awful experiments. The Apgar was 3/6. That led to a lot of interesting research on my part.
The hybrid was born in 1944. The Apgar rating was not created until 1952, and I very much doubt that Virginia Apgar in the US had a lot of contact with German doctors in 1944, even though she might have discussed it as something she was thinking about somewhere along the line with colleagues.
Apgar scores are in single digits, as far as I know.
Best of all, the author was a gynecologist and pediatrician.
I did learn that Apgar means three things. 1) the creator's last name 2) a mnemonic device for Appearance, etc. 3) an acronym for American Pediatric Gross Assessment Record.
