Cyanotic heart disease
Cyanotic heart disease refers to a group of many different heart defects that are present at birth (congenital). They result in a low blood oxygen level. Cyanosis refers to a bluish color of the skin and mucous membranes.
Normally, blood returns from the body and flows through the heart and lungs.
· Blood that is low in oxygen (blue blood) returns from the body to the right side of the heart.
· The right side of the heart then pumps the blood to the lungs, where it picks up more oxygen and becomes red.
· The oxygen-rich blood returns from the lungs to the left side of the heart. From there, it is pumped to the rest of the body.
Types of Cyanotic congenital heart disease are:
· Transposition of the great arteries
