Cyanosis and infants

Posted By Mary on April 14, 1998 at 00:12:35:







4 month old baby boy has developed cyanotic hands and feet almost continously.  Otherwise, has been relatively healthy.  Was born to 17 year old, diabetic ( has been on insulin since age 7 )teen.
What should be considered and ruled out?  
What objective testing is usually performed?
Any other commentaries would be most appreciated! ( IE - Suggestions of questions to pose to consulting pediatric cardiologist - treating physician arranged evaluation ).
Thank you.
