Answer

Tests to rule out hemolysis and to test for organ failure and general end-organ dysfunction should be performed. Urine pregnancy tests should be performed in females of childbearing age. Tests to evaluate a hereditary cause for methemoglobinemia should be ordered when appropriate. (See Workup.)
