My 4 year old son was in a pool of cold water. He has been shivering for 1 hour. His lips have gone blue and his entire body has turned bluish. He has no CHD. What is the diagnosis and prevention/treatment? Should I get an echodone?

My 4 year old son was in a pool of cold water. He has been shivering for 1 hour. His lips have gone blue and his entire body has turned bluish. He has no CHD. What is the diagnosis and prevention/treatment? Should I get an echodone?

Acrocyanosis: A 4 year old will not typically present with heart disease after being in a pool. Acrocyanosis is when a patient appears blue in the extremities, often after being in cold environments. If it resolves and the child is otherwise fine, I would bring it up with the pediatrician, but otherwise not necessarily do anything else. If other problems occur, then please discuss with the pediatrician.
