How Does Epinephrine Affect The Heart
If a person is having anaphylactic shock, their blood vessels may suddenly dilate.
This can cause their blood pressure to drop, sometimes quite considerably.
If the blood pressure is too low, the pulse may not be able to be felt; the heart is, however, still beating in this case.
If a person is having anaphylactic shock, they need emergent treatment. ...Read more

Can't use epinephrine I get rapid heart rate, endodontist wants to give me 20 mg Valium crushed 1/2 hour before root canal. Is this ok?
Epinephrine: After over 40 years of dental practice I have had only a handful of patients who truly are sensitive to Epinephrine in local anesthetics. Almost all patient who say they react with an increased heart rate do so because of the release of their own epi due to anxiety, or react from poor injection technique. Ask your dentist about the use of sweet air instead of valium. Btw ok with precautions. ...Read more

Pheochromocytoma: A pheochromocytoma is a growth in the area of the adrenal glands that causes hypertension, elevated catecholamine levels and palpitations. It is not a common condition and an endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate for one and I recommend that you consult one in view of your symptoms. He/she will order the appropriate tests and refer you to a cardiologist if it is deemed advisable. ...Read more
How high does epinephrine have to be to be considered a pheochromocytoma? Also, I have attacks multiple times a night (every night) with heart rates as high as 174bpm. Used to have episodes of nausea,
This question is: Really complex, and I am concerned that an answer may only make things more confusing if it is too specific. I think in situations like this a thorough history and physical by an internal medicine doctor and possibly a second opinion would be a great way to shed light on something that seems foggy. Pheochromocytoma is truly rare. There are common things that should be looked into first. Best 2 U. ...Read more
The dentist may use anesthetic such as 0.3ml lidocaine with 1:100, 000 epinephrine. Would this interact/ have problems with my heart or BP medication.
Stress form the procedure, particularly if you were not numb, would cause your body to release more Epinephrine then what is in the local anesthetic.
That said I do try to error on the side of caution depending on the heart condition by not using the maximum dose (approximately 8 full injections) and breaking up multiple procedures over several appointments. ...Read more

What does ER do if a patient with heart disease and tachycardia has anaphylaxis shock? Do they still give epinephrine injection?
Usualloy yes.: Tachycardia is frequently caused by anaphylaxis. The only drug that truly treats the condition is epinephrine. Therefore, the drug should still be used in patients with heart disease. However, a good way of reducing the danger from the medication is to give lower initial doses, e.g. A pediatric dose of 0.15mg im, which can be repeated every 10 minutes as necessary. ...Read more

What are norepinephrine and epinephrine's effects on heart rate, blood pressure, vasoconstriction, sensitivity to pain, and heat production.
EPI: It increases heart rate and blood pressure (sometimes dangerously). It causes vasoconstriction. Variable effect on pain but generally increases sensitivity and because it ramps up your metabolism it increases heat production. Follow your docs instructions very carefully and don't freelance. ...Read more

Psychologial Tx of physical problems:
Andrew, your symptoms indicate the strong possibility of being the consequence of conditioning from earlier life experiences. I say this because of their cyclic nature, the act hat the symptoms are physical does not preclude the cause being psychological.
I urge you to visit www. Stii. Us for expanded information on this possibility. Treatment by Subliminal Therapy is my first recommendation with Hypnotic methods being second (www. Asch. Net for a referral for hypnosis).
Medications can mask symptoms but do not address the problem itself. When you resolve the cause of a problem, you eliminate its symptoms.
