Do Symptoms Like Cyanosis Go Away Quickly
I have severe migrane-ish headaches every day (i drink lots of water& my eyes are fine) I also have anaemic like symptoms (including cyanosis)?
What are the prognosis and best treatment options for pneumonia and pleural effusion my grandma started having symptom of abdominal pain and cyanosis on lips and hands and little shortness of breathe. She was admitted with diagnosis of pneumonia and was p
I: I am so sorry that your grandma is going through that. Pneumonia is treated with antibiotics and oxygen, as you know. Pleural effusions in most cases resolve spontaneously as the pneumonia clears up, but in the case of severe pleural effusions, the patient sometimes needs to have drainage performed. It is rare that effusions need to be drained however. Most patients improve with antibiotics and supportive care.
Non viral causes of high monocytes 16%? 4 y/o w/Symptoms: recurring fever, cyanosis, joint pain, no appetite, swollen lymph nodes. FH of JRA & Lupus.
Not the key: As a pathologist and lab specialist, I would discourage you from paying any attention at all to percentages, or to monocytes unless the absolute count is well over 1000. Sounds like a JRA variant if it is clear there is no heart defect or endocarditis
Newborn cyanosis: Blue color to baby after birth is common. If in distress, breathing and oxygenation can be affected. Oxygen can be given after birth if a blue color appears after birth, especially with chest retractions and distress. Sometimes, it can occur with congenital heart issues, so referral is key to surgical repairs as indicated.
Depends: It depends entirely on the cause of the cyanosis. If it is due to a reversible phenomenon such as spasm of certain small blood vessels called arterioles, then cyanosis is treatable and can improve. There are many causes of cyanosis; some are untreatable.
See below: Only oxygenated hemoglobin is red. In hypoxic states, there is no oxygen, therefore the hemoglobin is bluish or cyan colored.
Cyanosis: Bluish discoloration.Get a more detailed answer ›
Need examination: If by "cyanosis" you mean your fingertips, toes or lips have a bluish/pallid color compared to normal then, this suggests something wrong with the heart or lungs. Do you have congenital heart problems? Are you a smoker or have a respiratory tract obstructiont? Cyanosis signals a lack of oxygen in the system which means the brain suffers big time. Drowsiness may follow. I suggest you get a checkup
What to do if I have a purple tint. My human bio teacher said it was cyanosis which is uncommon. Is it genetic?
Need more info: Is the bluish tint something that just recently occurred, or a long standing problem? Also, what part of your body are affected? Do you have any other symptoms other than the bluish tint of the affect areas?
Needs study: Although many possible scenarios can be imagined as a cause, the possibilities include several serious posibilities. Example: drug-induced changes causing all 3 symptoms. Get it checked out by your physician.
Depends: Some cyanosis is normal in babies, especially the first few weeks of age. A doctor can help you determine if the oxygen level is normal and if the cyanosis is normal.
Cyanosis in nail bed: Yes, cyanosis can occur in the late stages of life and represents a lack of oxygen getting into the blood.
Heart: These symptoms suggest a sudden and serious restriction of blood flow from a heart-related problem. See your physician or cardiologist soon.
Not in isolation: Coarctation only causes cyanosis when it is associated with other heart disease that allows blue blood to cross over to the red blood side. Cyanosis occurs in two situations: 1. When blue blood gets to the red blood side ("right-to-left shunting) or 2. When blood is not fully oxygenated in the lungs ("pulmonary venous desaturation").
Can a lesion in the thecal sac at L4 somehow cause cyanosis or blueness in the feet that quickly resolves when the feet are elevated?
