Not at all: Central cyanosis (blue all over) makes us worry about problems oxygenating the blood & could represent a lung problem or a shunt (extra connection) in the heart that might let blood cross from right to left & avoid the lungs. Peripheral cyanosis (blue hands, feet, lips, etc.) merely reflects sluggish blood flow through these peripheral capillaries.

Acrocyanosis: Being cold causes vasoconstriction (tightening down) of the blood vessels in the periphery. This is called acrocyanosis. Hands and feet (and lips too) turning blue is usually from this and rarely a sign of heart disease, but you can check the tongue and inside of the mouth -- if these parts are pink when the hands/feet/lips are blue, then it is unlikely to be related to the heart. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
