Dusky: Most congenital heart disease is accompanied by a dusky appearance, because blood from the right side of the heart (blue beacuase of low oxygen) mixes with blood from the left side (red because it is saturated with oxygen). Also, increase respiratory rate can accomany congenital heart disease because many of these heart malformations cause the lungs to flood with fluid.
