HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR CYANOSIS
Cyanosis is a bluish color to the skin or mucus membranes that is usually due to a lack of oxygen in the blood.
Red blood cells provide oxygen to body tissues. Most of the time, almost all red blood cells in the arteries carry a full supply of oxygen. These blood cells are bright red and the skin has a pinkish or red hue.
Blood that has lost its oxygen is dark bluish-red. People whose blood is low in oxygen tend to have a bluish color to their skin, called cyanosis.
Depending on the cause, cyanosis may develop suddenly, along with shortness of breath and other symptoms.
Cyanosis that is caused by long-term heart or lung problems may develop slowly. Symptoms may be present, but are often not severe.
When oxygen levels have dropped only a small amount, cyanosis may be hard to detect.
In dark-skinned people, cyanosis may be easier to see in the mucus membranes (lips, gums, around the eyes) and nails.
Causes--Cyanosis that is seen in only one part of the body may be due to:-A blood clot that blocks the blood supply to a leg, foot, hand, or arm, Raynaud phenomen
LACK OF OXYGEN IN THE BLOOD
Most cyanosis occurs because of a lack of oxygen in the blood. This can be caused by the following problems-Problems with the lungs:Blood clot in the arteries of the lungs Drowning or near-drowning, High altitude, Infection in the smallest air passages in the lungs of children, called bronchiolitis , Long-term lung problems that become more severe, such as COPD, asthma and interstitial lung disease, severe pneumonia
Problems with the airways leading to the lungs:-Breath-holding, Choking on something stuck in the airways, croup, epiglottitis
Problems with the heart:--Heart defects that are present at birth (congenital), heart failure, Heart stops working (cardiac arrest)
Other problems:--Drug overdoses (narcotics, benzodiazepines, sedatives), Exposure to cold air or water, Seizures that last a long time, Toxins such as cyanide
