Answer

Other studies that may be considered are as follows:

  • Potassium cyanide test to distinguish methemoglobin from sulfhemoglobin
  • CT of the head
  • Chest radiography to exclude pulmonary or cardiac disease
  • Echocardiography to determine the presence of congenital heart disease

See Workup for more detail.
