Hi, I'm suffering of cyanosis. I have ecg, spirometry, echo and x-ray tests done, all of them with good results so far. What other tests can I have to diagnose the cause of cyanosis? Thanks in advance.

  • cyanosis only occurs when oxygen does not reach the tissue. This would mean you are compromised in either your lungs, heart, or circulatory system. Perhaps it is in your veins or arteries, like in Raynaud's phenomenon or with blood clots. A pulmonary embolism could cause this, or asthma
