What is cyanotic heart disease
When we talk aboutcyanotic heart diseases we'll come back to what cyanotic meansjust a second. So, congenital means that it is something that theperson was born with. So they have heart disease notbecause they didn't eat right or something was wrongwith their environment, but because their heartis structurally abnormal.
And these days, with all the technology, we can actually ultrasound the mom's belly and see that this baby hascongenital heart disease because, again, thisis something structural that we can physically see with our eyes. For cyanotic, I think thebest synonym to use is blue. So blue,medical terms, means this baby looks blue.
And by the way, I'm goingto keep saying baby, because when we think ofcongenital heart disease we're usually talking about babies because they need treatment early. And yes, they do survive into adulthood which is nice, but whenwe talk about treatment or diagnosing, most ofthe time we're dealing with the pediatric world,
so this baby is blue. Now babies can look blue forlots and lots of reasons. It could be a lung disease thing, it could be somethingwith their circulation, but obviously, for our purposes, we care about theirheart making them blue. So this is a baby, the most obvious ways to see this bluish tintin people of all colors,
are the mucus membranes,so the whites of their eyes might turn blue, their lips, and the tip of theirtongue is a good place. Sometimes, if it's really severe, their body will start to become cyanotic, and that's how you know they really are lacking oxygen. So to go back even further,
we have this ideamedicine that when blood has alot of carbon dioxideit, it is blue, and bloodwith oxygenit, is red, how we usually think of blood, and this is true to a certain extent. Blood that has less oxygenit has a darker tint, butis not actually blue. For our purposes, we'll keep it that way.
