In patients with cyanosis from congenital heart disease, erythropoiesis is governed by many factors that can alter the expected relation between the oxygen saturation (O(2sat)) and hemoglobin concentration. We sought to define the relation between the O(2sat) and hemoglobin in such patients and to predict an ideal hemoglobin concentration for a given O(2sat). Adults with congenital heart defects and cyanosis were studied prospectively using blood tests and exercise testing. Nonoptimal… CONTINUE READING
