Unformatted text preview: Evaluation of the Cyanotic Infant Bill Lefkowitz 16 NOV 2000 Outline Outline Cyanosis ­ define and describe Terms (PaO2 v SaO2 v CaO2) Differential of cyanosis The hyperoxia test A few etiologies Take home points Evaluation and intervention Flowchart Cyanosis Cyanosis 3g/dL deoxyhemoglobin Low flow areas with increased oxygen extraction have more deoxyhemoglobin High flow areas with less extraction should not have enough deoxyhemaglobin to appear cyanotic Under normal circumstances you should not be able to extract enough O2 to have 3g/dL deoxyhemoglobin running through the tongue and gums (lips OK when cold) Cyanosis Acro v Central Cyanosis Acro v Central Acrocyanosis part of normal transition may last 72hr beware APGAR of 10 hypoperfused severe anemia Cyanosis Cyanosis Cyanosis Cyanosis is dependent on HCT and % Sat Florescent light makes cyanosis hard to see.
