Acquired methemoglobinemia cannot typically be predicted and prevented ahead of time.[] It also causes a bluish appearance of the skin, lips, and nails (cyanosis), which usually first appears around the age of 6 months.[]

  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    Methemoglobinemia Methemoglobinemia in smoke inhalation is relatively rare and rarely requires treatment with methylene blue.[] Specific therapy treat coexistent burns treat suspected cyanide toxicity —sodium thiosulfate and hydroxocobalamin are preferred for suspected severe toxicity treat treat methemoglobinemia[] A repeat dose of 150 mg may be administered two hours following the initial dose if cyanide toxicity persists and the resulting level of methemoglobinemia is acceptable.[]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    Signs of this condition include: abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia), bluish lips, fingers, toes, and skin (cyanosis), heart murmurs (an extra sound when listening to the heart[] A brief episode of methemoglobinemia responded to lowering of the nitric oxide concentration and administration of intravenous methylene blue.[] […] of lips, oral mucosa, or extremities cardiac exam high-pitched early diastolic murmur pulmonary insufficiency jugular venous distension loud pulmonary component of S2 sound[]

  • Sulfhemoglobinemia

    Methemoglobinemia and sulfhemoglobinemia are difficult to distinguish, although the former occurs much more frequently than the latter. sulfhemoglobinemia rare blood condition[] The mucous membrane of mouth, lips, conjunctivae .[] Copper sulfate Haptoglobin NADPH methemoglobin reductase Methylene blue Congenital methemoglobinemia Benzocaine Prilocaine Phenazopyridine Nitrates Nitrites Well-water methemoglobinemia[]

  • Tetralogy of Fallot

    View this video with a transcript The symptoms of tetralogy of Fallot include: Blue or purple tint to lips, skin and nails (cyanosis) Heart murmur: the heart sounds abnormal[] It is a cyanotic heart disease and is the most common cause of blue baby syndrome, a common name for methemoglobinemia in newborns.[] An important sign of tetralogy of Fallot is cyanosis. Cyanosis is a bluish tint to the skin, lips, and fingernails.[]

  • Hypoxia

    The most common symptom of hypoxia is cyanosis , a bluish cast to the skin, lips and/or fingernails.[] Examples of the latter case are carbon monoxide poisoning and acquired methemoglobinemia , in both of which the hemoglobin is so altered by toxic agents that it becomes unavailable[] Symptoms and causes of cyanosis include: The person's lips or fingernail beds may appear blue Certain lung conditions in which lung function is compromised as asthma, COPD[]

  • Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation

    […] with severe cyanosis without structural cardiac lesions or pulmonary hypertension, after excluding other causes of cyanosis, such as parenchymal lung disease and the rare methemoglobinemia[] On physical examination, telangiectasias may be noticed on the nose, lips, tongue, chest, and upper limbs.[] There was central cyanosis in lips and nails and grade 2 clubbing was present. There was no evidence of mucocutanious telangiectasis.[]

  • Hemoglobinopathy

    ( ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code D74 D74 Methemoglobinemia D74.0 Congenital methemoglobinemia D74.8 Other methemoglobinemias D74.9 Methemoglobinemia, unspecified D74.- ) other[] Methemoglobinemia : The iron in the heme portion of hemoglobin is easily oxidised and this reduces the ability of hemoglobin to bind oxygen.[] 2016 2017 2018 2019 Billable/Specific Code Applicable To Congenital NADH-methemoglobin reductase deficiency Hemoglobin-M [Hb-M] disease Methemoglobinemia, hereditary D74.0[]

  • Asphyxia

    […] non-toxic gases which displace oxygen from the inhaled air, by exposure to carbon monoxide from smoke inhalation such that hemoglobin is poisoned, or the development of methemoglobinemia[]
