Caption: Photograph of the hands showing cyanosis or blueing of the nail beds, which is evidence of an inadequate amount of oxygen in the blood. Cyanosis is associated with heart failure, lung diseases and in instances of suffocation. The hands also show evidence of clubbing of the fingers, a condition associated with pulmonary disease. The natural angle between the nail and the nail bed is lost and increased curvature of the nail and later, enlargement of the ends of the fingers develops.
