    If you see somebody that has blue looking lips that means they're not getting enough oxygen that's a good sign of a heroin overdose make the person talk to you take the person's pulse a normal pulse should be around $95. If the post is very slow like 70 or 60. Make the person move around walk around and breathe and observe the person's appearance for a few minutes and see if the bluish cast goes away continue to observe the person.  If the person appears intoxicated sleepy groggy you ought to start heading for the hospital.  If there is no improvement after you tell the person to move around and start talking to you the bluish tint should go away very quickly. But if the person has slurred speech or is staggering suspect a narcotics overdose and act accordingly get the person to the hospital better safe than sorry

    No, just a doctor's visit.

    At least a trip to the emergency room. You don't need a $1500 bill from the ambulance company.

  • Blue lips are never a good sign.  There are many other factors to evaluate, however, mainly, is the patient in respiratory distress.

    Yes, you need to call 911 right now. It means the person with blue lips has little to no oxygen and if left ignored, the person can get seriously sick or worse, can die.

    I would.  Very low blood oxygen is an emergency.
