What is the response to oxygen administration in central and peripheral cyanosis ?

Posted Oct 22 2010 10:52am

Answer : Peripheral cyanosis  reduces or disappears  , while central cyanosis persist.

This is how , 99% of cardiology fellows answered in one of my  classes ! And they were quoting few  references for it .

Is that correct ? If so , what is the mechanism  of  oxygen response ?

Comments welcome . Discussion will start soon .
