Acquired methemoglobinemia is often unrecognized and thus untreated. The current study serves to identify the incidence of methemoglobinemia among patients who had co-oximetry performed over 28 months at an academic institution and to characterize the clinically significant cases. To our knowledge, this is the largest study of the problem In a large series of patients undergoing TEE, the incidence of methemoglobinemia is low (1 case per 1499 [0.067%; 95% confidence interval, 0.040%-0.100%]) and has a good outcome if promptly recognized and treated. Clinical factors associated with the development of methemoglobinemia include sepsis, . The acquired form, such as from excessive nitrate exposure, is a serious medical emergency. Among the reported cases of acquired methemoglobinemia in US infants, most have been attributed to the use of nitrate contaminated well water for preparation of infant formula Importance Methemoglobinemia is a rare but serious disorder, defined as an increase in oxidized hemoglobin resulting in a reduction of oxygen-carrying capacity.Although methemoglobinemia is a known complication of topical anesthetic use, few data exist on the incidence of and risk factors for this potentially life-threatening disorder

The Burn Center, Department of Surgery, Washington Hospital Center, Washington, District of Columbia A large retrospective cohort study found a high incidence of methemoglobinemia (up to 19.8%) in 167 pediatric patients receiving dapsone for PCP prophylaxis. The median methemoglobin level was 9% (range, 3.5-22.4%) One of the complications of nitroglycerin infusion during surgery is methemoglobinemia.The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of methemoglobinemia and its association with nitroglycerin infusion for the treatment of hypertension during general anesthesia.Patients received nitroglycerin infusion at a dose of 2 μ/kg/min. The aim of controlling blood pressure was to set the.
Methemoglobin is a form of hemoglobin that has been oxidized, changing its heme iron configuration from the ferrous (Fe 2+) to the ferric (Fe 3+) state. Unlike normal hemoglobin, methemoglobin does not bind oxygen and as a result cannot deliver oxygen to the tissues. Methemoglobinemia can be congenital or acquired DISCUSSION. Methemoglobin is produced from oxidation of ferrous iron (Fe 2+) to ferric iron (Fe 3+) within the heme moiety of hemoglobin. 7 Methemoglobin, which normally constitutes <1% of the total hemoglobin, cannot carry oxygen. Furthermore, as a consequence of allosteric interactions within the molecule, there is an increased affinity for oxygen at the remaining binding sites, causing a.

Incidence of subclinical methemoglobinemia in infants with diarrhea In ill infants with diarrhea, particularly those who are small for age, consideration should be given to screening for methemoglobinemia. In ill infants with diarrhea, particularly those who are small for age, consideration should be given to screening for methemoglobinemia The signs and symptoms of methemoglobinemia, beta-globin type are generally limited to cyanosis, which does not cause any health problems. However, in rare cases, severe methemoglobinemia, beta-globin type can cause headaches, weakness, and fatigue Congenital methemoglobinemia is a well-recognized if rare cause of cyanosis in children. 1, 2, 3, 4 The susceptibility of young children to the development of methemoglobinemia upon exposure to exogenous oxidants is well known. 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 Direct exogenous oxidants include amyl nitrite, sodium nitrite, silver nitrite, nitroglycerin, and water and foods high in nitrites While methemoglobinemia may be inherited, incidence of inheritance is low. Instead, the disease normally manifests after severe dehydration or exposure to toxins. In a 2007 episode of the spin-off show of Grey's Anatomy , Private Practice , several sisters developed the condition after long exposure to nitrate fertilizers The true incidence of acquired methemoglobinemia is unknown. Estimated incidence based on methylene blue use (the treatment of methemoglobinemia) reported to the American Association of Poison Control Centers is reported to be approximately 100 cases per year. This number is considered to be a gross underestimation due to underreporting of.

Methemoglobin (MetHb) is altered state of hemoglobin (Hb) in which the ferrous (Fe2+) irons of heme are oxidized to the ferric (Fe3+) state. The ferric hemes of MetHb are UNABLE to bind oxygen (O2). Thus, oxygen dissociation curve is left-shifted, making it more difficult to release O2. Methemoglobinemia types: Congenital - diminished. Guay J.

Methemoglobinemia is a condition in which more than 1% of the hemoglobin in red blood cells takes the form of methemoglobin. Methemoglobulin is an abnormal form of hemoglobin (the molecule responsible for carrying oxygen in the blood cells) that is unable to bind to oxygen. A small amount of methemoglobin is normal (less than 1% of hemoglobin) Methemoglobin formation occurs naturally in red blood cells of all mammals . As reported in a study the incidence of methemoglobinemia after performing over 28,000 EGDs is 0.067% . It is estimated that 0.3-0.7% of hemoglobin is oxidized to the methemoglobin molecule daily
Thus, we cannot comment about the incidence of the Rainbow system falsely suggesting the presence of methemoglobinemia when true %MetHb levels are <4%. The technology used to detect MetHb and COHb in vivo is still being developed and further studies of accuracy may be necessary as newer software and hardware versions become available .

Answer: Methemoglobinemia; obtain methemoglobin level and give methylene blue 1,2 Background: Oxygen is able to bind normal hemoglobin while it is in the ferrous state (2+). Methemoglobin is an oxidized form of hemoglobin in which the heme iron configuration has been converted from ferrous (2+) to ferric (3+) thus it cannot bind to oxygen Methemoglobinemia could be a congenital or acquired condition. It causes clinical conditions ranging from simple cyanosis to hypoxia, lactic acidosis and death. Several cases of metoclopramide-induced methemoglobinemia both in infants and adults have been reported in literature. We aimed to investigate the incidence of metoclopramide Blue baby syndrome, also known as methemoglobinemia, is a condition that causes a baby's skin to turn blue. While it is rare, a common cause of this discoloration is drinking formula made with.
We aimed to investigate the incidence of metoclopramide-induced methemoglobinemia in our emergency department (ED). Material and Method: Adult patients who were admitted to the ED with renal colic, peripheral vertigo, acute gastroentiritis and vascular headache and who were given a single dose of 10 mg metoclopramide for nausea and/or vomiting. High incidence of symptomatic methemoglobinemia (metHb) in Asian patients (pts) treated with 3-Aminopyridine-2-carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (3-AP, triapine) and gemcitabine (GEM) in a second-line phase II trial of metastatic non-small cell lung cance Dapsone is the medication that most commonly causes methemoglobin, but other offending drugs include the local anesthetics benzocaine and lidocaine. 8 There is a paucity of literature regarding the incidence of dapsone-induced methemoglobinemia If used in combination with epinephrine, a dose of up to 7 mg/kg, or 500 mg total, is tolerable. 24 Currently, few estimates of the incidence of lidocaine-induced methemoglobinemia exist. In a 2009 study of locally injected anesthetics at clinically significant doses and without concomitant use of other oxidants, lidocaine was responsible for 3. Acquired methemoglobinemia has been linked to the use of the topical anesthetic benzocaine in endoscopic procedures, including transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). Yet, the incidence of benzocaineinduced methemoglobinemia with TEE and the clinical factors associated with its development are unclear

The median methemoglobin level was 9% (range, 3.5-22.4%). The risk of developing methemoglobinemia was increased in those patients receiving a higher dose of dapsone (≥20% above the. The incidence of infant methemoglobinemia reported in three counties of Transylvania, Romania, was evaluated from medical records, field visits, and interviews. Wellwater was the main source of nitrate for induction of acquired infant methemoglobinemia, which occurred post-breast-feeding when the infants consumed nitrate-contaminated water used. Methemoglobinemia is a rare cause of hypoxemia, characterized by abnormal levels of oxidized hemoglobin that cannot bind to and transport oxygen. A 62-year-old male underwent bronchoscopy where lidocaine oral solution and Hurricaine spray (20% benzocaine) were used. He developed central cyanosis and his oxygen saturation was 85% via pulse oximetry
The true incidence of methemoglobinemia related to benzocaine is unknown. Several case reports and studies have identified the number of cases at single institutions. One case report identified 1 incident of methemoglobinemia in 7000 bronchoscopies. 8 Another report found 2 cases in more than 1000 endoscopies performed at one institution. 9 Acquired methemoglobinemia is the kind that is not present at birth, as compared to the kind that is present at birth, known as congenital methemoglobinemia. The FDA conducted a study to compare the ability of benzocaine and another local anesthetic, lidocaine, to make methemoglobin. The study showed benzocaine created much more methemoglobin. Methemoglobin is a form of hemoglobin in which has had its heme iron altered - from the ferrous (Fe 2+) to the ferric (Fe 3+) state - through oxidation. The true incidence of congenital methemoglobinemia has not been properly identified as it is often not diagnosed Table 3: Incidence of most drugs that cause Methemoglobinemia. Nitrate Derivatives,which are relatively nontoxic, can be reduced to Nitrites Derivatives (more potent methemoglobin-inducing agents) in the gut by bacteria such as Pseudomonas areuginosa, Bacillus subtilis, Aerobacter cloacae, Escherichia spp, and Salmonella.

considering four angles of incidence (0 , 15 , 30 and 45 ) as well as dis-tinct severity levels of methemoglobinemia and sulfhemoglobinemia (10% to 80%). The concentrations of dysfunctional (MetHb and SHb) and functional hemoglobins associated with these levels are provided in Tables3.2and3.3.27 vi Methemoglobin is hemoglobin with iron in a ferric state instead of a ferrous state, thus unable to carry oxygen causing cyanosis and a left shift of the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve. Methemoglobinemia, either congenital or acquired, is a rare clinical occurrence and can be life threatening for individuals with levels greater than 20% Materials and methods: All patients who underwent TEE with benzocaine topical anesthesia between June 2005 and June 2007 were included in this retrospective study. Results: Of the 886 patients who were included in the study, 140 had active infection (15.8%). The incidence of methemoglobinemia in this group was 2.9% (vs. 0%, P < 0.001) Methemoglobin was first described by Felix Hoppe-Seyler in 1864. 42 Subsequently, in 1891, a case of transient drug-induced methemoglobinemia was reported. 85 In the late 1930s, methemoglobinemia was recognized as a predictable adverse effect of sulfanilamide use, and methylene blue was recommended for treatment of the ensuing cyanosis. 56,125 Some authors even recommended concurrent use of.

Methemoglobinemia . Cases of methemoglobinemia, with resultant hospitalization, have been reported postmarketing in association with twice daily dapsone gel, 5%, treatment. Patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency or congenital or idiopathic methemoglobinemia are more susceptible to drug-induced methemoglobinemia. Avoid use of. higher incidence of these ﬁndings than previously reported. CONCLUSIONS: Methemoglobinemia and anemia can develop from pyridium misuse in adults. Reference #1: Haigh, C. and J.C. Dewar (2005). Multiple adverse effects of pyridium: a case report. Southern Medical Association. 99 (1): 90-92 Methemoglobinemia occurs when we produce methemoglobin faster than cytochrome b 5 reductase can reduce it. But we have another potential pathway of methemoglobin reduction. NADPH methemoglobin reductase uses electrons from NADPH to reduce methemoglobin, but also requires an electron carrier intermediate
Methemoglobinemia can also occur as an inherited condition. Assessment of methemoglobinemia Like CO, the signs and symptoms of MET poisoning are vague and appear flu-like. Following an endoscopic. This is an epidemiologic study on the incidence of methemoglobinemia in infants routinely fed formula prepared from nitrate-contaminated water. This study analyzed all known cases of infant methemoglobinemia occurring in 37 U.S. states irrespective of date or type of water supply. Nitrate (nitrogen) content ranged from 10 ppm to over 100 ppm Table 3: Incidence of most drugs that cause Methemoglobinemia. Predispsoing Factors Nitrate Derivatives,which are relatively nontoxic, can be reduced to Drugs induced methemoglobinemia depend on many factors Nitrites Derivatives (more potent methemoglobin-inducing agents) in such as: the gut by bacteria such as Pseudomonas areuginosa, Bacillus. Rise in incidence of acquired methemoglobinemia owing to increase in use of local anesthetics, surge in use of silver nitrates for the treatment of wounds, eating nitrate rich vegetables, and growing awareness about the available treatments are the factors expected to drive the global acquired methemoglobinemia treatment market during the. Infant Methemoglobinemia (Blue Baby Syndrome) Infant methemoglobinemia is also called blue baby syndrome.. It is a condition where a baby's skin turns blue. This happens when there is not enough oxygen in the blood. Methemoglobinemia is a condition that some babies are born with (congenital) or some develop early in life (acquired)
torical outbreaks of methemoglobinemia in association with wells containing drinking water contaminated with sodium nitrate [3-5]. Sodium nitrate can directly oxidize Hb from the ferrous (Fe2+) to the ferric (Fe3+) state, known as MetHb . Methemoglobinemia occurs when MetHb levels in the circulation are greater than 1.5% Methemoglobinemia can be congenital (due to defects in enzymatic reduction of hemoglobin) or acquired. Patients present with symptoms of anoxia, cyanosis, reduced oxygen saturation, and chocolate-brown arterial blood. Confirmation of the diagnosis is made by measurement of methemoglobin on arterial blood gas sampling
Blue baby syndrome can refer to a number of conditions that affect oxygen transportation in the blood, resulting in blueness of the skin in babies. Historically, the term blue baby syndrome has referred to babies with one of two conditions: Cyanotic heart disease, which is a category of congenital heart defect that results in low levels of oxygen in the blood 5.3 Methemoglobinemia In clinical studies, methemoglobinemia occurred in <1% patients receiving Elitek.These included cases of serious hypoxemia requiring intervention with medical support measures. It is not known whether patients with deﬁciency of cytochrome b 5 reductase (formerly known as methemoglobin reductase) o Bosch et al. (1950) correlated the incidence of infant methemoglobinemia with the nitrate concentration of drinking water from Minnesota wells. The water was found to contain from 10 to greater than 100 mg nitrate-nitrogen/L. No cases of methemoglobinemia were found with baby formula made with well water containing 10 mg or less nitrate-nitrogen/L Methemoglobinemia is a blood disorder in which, due to increased production (congenital or acquired reasons), the red blood cells (RBCs) contain higher than normal levels of methemoglobin (>1%). Methemoglobin forms from the substitution of iron (Fe) in [[ferric/reduced (Fe 2+ ) form]], as found in normal hemoglobin , with iron in [[oxidized (Fe.

Drug-induced methemoglobinemia can be caused due to topical anesthetics, dapsone, nitrates (e.g., nitroglycerin), and metoclopramide. Cyanosis in the setting of topical anesthetic use, along with the arterial blood gas results indicating hypoxemia, points towards the diagnosis of methemoglobinemia. We highlight the potential complication with the use of topical pharyngeal benzocaine through. The incidence of methemoglobinemia was 0.45%. Table I also illustrates the differences between patients with and without an active infection. Patients in the infected group had lower hemoglobin and serum albumin levels, lower glomerular filtration rates, and higher rates of dialysis at the time of the procedure..

Methaemoglobinaemia in infants appears to be associated with a high concentration of nitrates in the water supply. The authors have found [this Bulletin, 1962, v. 37, 442] that this effect may be due to reduction of the nitrate to nitrite by organisms of the Bacillus subtilis group, the spores of which are present in dried milk. They have demonstrated this action in vitro and in animal.. Methemoglobinemia. Cases of methemoglobinemia have been reported in association with local anesthetic use. Although all patients are at risk for methemoglobinemia, patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, congenital or idiopathic methemoglobinemia, cardiac or pulmonary compromise, infants under 6 months of age, and concurrent exposure to oxidizing agents or their metabolites.
