The normal presentation of a patientwith a drug induced methemoglobinemia is a low pulse oximetry SpO2reading, usually in the mid 80% range, while having a very high PaO2 on an arterial blood gas ABG1. We present a case where the initial ABG showeda very high PaO2 and a metabolic alkalosis while the SpO2 fluctuated 85%- 99%. Those findings combined withhemodynamic instability complicated the diagnosis and delayed optimal care.
