Epinephrine tachycardia

Common Questions and Answers about Epinephrine tachycardia

epipen

I have to go have a tooth filled tomorrow and I'm somewhat apprehensive about the anesthetic. I know most often the ones they use contain epinephrine because it's a vasoconstricter and causes the anesthesia to work longer. I know you can request the anesthetic without the epi but then it wears off quickly (like when they are drilling on your tooth). I asked my cardiologist and he said if I didn't get a big dose of the epi, if it was mixed, with the beta blockers I should be ok.
Can epinephrine injection, given in the ER for a allergic reaction cause elevated troponins. Pt did experience chest pain and some EKG changes that went away. Should this be considered and Acute MI? Pt went home in 24 hrs.
I went to my family doctor and she check my thyroid. Those results came back good. So I asked her to check my epinephrine levels because it almost seems like i have too much adrenaline. Those results cam back slightly high so she referred me to an endocrinologist. She also put me on 50mg of metoprolol (beta blocker). This medicine worked really good in beginning but several months later I am starting to have high blood pressure and high heart rate.
About a year ago it was suggested that I had pheochromocytoma. I was given a 24 hour urine norepinephrine and epinephrine test that came back saying it was conclusive that I did have a tumor. Further CT Scans and MRIs could find nothing so they once again started testing me over and over. The results once again finding that my levels were fluctuating from normal to abnormal. In the past week I have been diagnosed with tachycardia. My pulse is always over 105 while I'm awake.
A few years ago, I had surgery( laparotomy) which was uneventful, upon awakening from the anesthesia, I found myself in sinus tachycardia(110bpm) for approximatey 7 hrs. The PACU staff wasnt overly concerned, the sinus tach broke about 9 hrs post op. A few months later, I had a second procedure, when I woke up, again the sinus tach, this time my heart was running between 120-140bpm. EKG showed nothing unusual.
Hope that explains it better? Well adrenaline is epinephrine, but I've had that be higher than normal as well as nor-adrenaline/norepinephrine at various times (though haven't had the standing norepinephrine test). Your norepinephrine helps keep you from going into shock. Even though you don't feel adrenaline/epinephrine boosts, you like are getting that too at times, if you are like me.
There are other possible causes and you can read many postings on this site concerning other causes of tachycardia. Beta-blockers are good for helping to lower heart rates, including those induced by anxiety. Q: How is the maximum heart rate that we can have in rest and how long it can be maintained, not damnifying the heart ? - Is it a problem to go to emergency room immediately or after a little time ? - Supposing that is only sinus tachycardia?
So when you went to have the EP study done they didn't find anything besides sinus tachycardia? So do you have symptoms along with your tachycardia? Like when mine was goin fast all the time I was really dizzy and got tired really fast. Do you drink a lot of caffeine? How about smoke or do drugs? I'm hoping the answer is no to all these as they can all seriously make things worse.
I am mildly diabetic and have recently started controlling my blood sugar through diet and excercise. I monitor my blood sugar several times a day. I seem to suffer tachycardia when my blood sugar falls below 5.5 or 100mg/dl. My heart beat will race at 150 bpm and can stay there for hours. I feel no ill effects except mild trembling and shakiness. At the end of the episode, the rate can drop back to 80 bpm over a period of less than a minute.
I believe the only way to tell sinus tachycardia from SVT (supraventriculare tachycardia) is by EKG. But you didn't say that any SVT showed up on your holtor- I think maybe you meant to say PVC or premature ventricular complexes?
The in Jan 09 all heck broke loose and I was hospitalizesd 3 times with tachycardia and brady-tachy syndrome. My hr would accelerate to 225. I firmly believe that these two conditions are connected. I do not know if it is the epinephrine, I rather think that the nerves that are involved in your mouth have some electrical connection to what happens with your heart rhythm. I am going to do more investigation into this. Oral health can have a huge impact on the rest of your health I have learned.
Artificial sweeteners? Exposure to organic solvents? Chronic cutaneous exposure to solutions containing lidocaine and epinephrine? Which of the following can be triggers and should be avoided?
I have inappropriate sinus tachycardia. The docs called today and have now decided to try a nerve block in my neck first. It is supposed to block the nerves in my heart from being tachycardic. Has anyone had this procedure?? Can you tell me more about it? Thanks!
After 7 months of severe panic attacks my anxiety has finally settled. But I seem to have developed wierd unexplained daily tachycardia especially when standing up, doing physical activities and other minor stuff. My heart seems to race very easily like going up a flight of stairs because I'm already out of breath. I have had 2 ecg's a holter moniter and a echocardiogram, all seem to be normal.
1) Can the headache be related to the tachycardia? It is common for people with pheochromocytomas, an endocrine tumor that secrete epinephrine or norepinephrine, can cause increased heart rates, headaches and hypertension. The problem is we have to screen hundreds of people with similar syndromes to find one person that has it. It is very rare. 2) Is it common for normals to have this type of tachycardia? Resting heart rates over 100 are not normal or common.
I am 24, and for the past 3 weeks have been having tachycardia when waking up from a short nap or from a long nights sleep EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR THE PAST 3 WEEKS. I was waking up at night with the same problem but was prescribed xanax, the night episodes have stopped but the tachycardia when waking up from naps or sleep have continued ( mighth be gettting worse, I don't know) Does anyone know what I might have? I am very scared.

It's your responsibility to imform the dentist that epinephrine will cause tachycardia(fast heart beat). Lidocaine without epinphrine generally yields shorter duration of anesthesia.However, the condition is much easier to manage than a cardiac crisis.In today's practice of root canal treatment, infection is rarely encountered if you see a competent endodontist.
It's possible to get tachycardia from novocaine unless it had epinephrine in it. Have you been getting it each time you went? If so, it may be in your best interests to call your dentist or cardiologist and report your tachycardia.
He told me this was from the epinephrine in the shot. My heart raced for several minutes afterwards and so he injected it more slowly and said I may be sensitive to it. I am wondering if this is an indication of an underlying problem of some sort and if I should mention it to my doctor.
Also, I have recently been diagnosed with Sinus Node Re-entry tachycardia and have been placed on 50 mg. Lopressor twice daily. I am worried that the next time I need dental work done that I won't have many anesthesia options. I do not want anything with epinephrine in it because it makes my heart race and causes PVC's and the last time they gave me something that didn't have the epi in it BUT it didn't really numb me very well therefore, I still had some pain during the procedure.
thanks !
each time my dentist tries i cant get numb. he uses caines without epinephrine in them. my heart condition is tachycardia (about 109 beats without meds) i am over wieght 250 pounds . i also have sleep apnea. i also have atrial fib episodes lasting about 7 seconds each time and i get them about 6 times a year. more if i am stressed. i have high blood pressure . without meds it runs 147/93. i am on atenolol 25 mg. a day. my dentist says he will not use epi and doesnt know what else to do.
Have you had your thyroid and those adrenal hormones: epinephrine, norepinephrine, metanephrine and normetanephrine levels checked? Do you have any additional symptoms that you think might be unrelated to menopause, such as shortness of breath with exertion?
My own level was more moderately elevated in the past, but it is not believed I have a pheo but I believe it is owing to my postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, as I think (not dr. verified) I had the hyperadrenergic form. Stress, if the doctor means anxiety stress, would surely effect your EPINEPHRINE level- how is that one?
html While the start of my episode matched the start of my root canal, I didn't use any antibiotics. My brother-in-law is a Dermatologist and he thinks the Epinephrine in Novocain is probably the cause and the drug reference states that Epinephrine can cause heart Arrhythmias. One month after the Root Canal, the Arrhythmia's stopped like a switch and I'm back to my normal Arrhythmia pattern.
Tachycardia may be induced by the epinephrine that's in the anesthetic. The feeling of nausea and the feeling of about to loose conciousness is related to syncope (fainting). The signs and symptoms of an allergic response is itchiness, rash, wheezing. The symptoms you're giving does not indicate allergy. The incidence of allergy to anesthetic (especially to local) is very rare. Typically it's related to the ester type of anesthetics and much more rarely to the amide type of anesthetics.
Hi, I have recently been having a problem with sinus tachycardia (elevated heart rate) and I am on medication for it. (cartia xt). My heart rate still tends to be on the high side. I have a wisdom tooth which has cavities in it, and it is hurting me so I am going to my dentist in two days. I am afraid the pain medication the use will raise my heart rate. Should I be worried about this?
For the first time in 37 years, two weeks ago when I received regular dental anesthetic my heart raced and I started having palpitations. It passed of course in a few minutes and when I went in yesterday for a root canal I asked for the anesthetic without epi. The first shot was fine, but the second injection sill caused my heart to pound hard, my chest felt shallow and made me feel a little panicy. It passed and the 3rd injection did the same.
it is intermitten atrial fibulation and tachycardia. it is controlled by atenolol. i also have sleep apnea. i usually have the dentist use carbocaine for dental work. this time i needed an upper wisdom tooth extracted. the carbocaine would not get me numb enough. what else can the dentist use? he suggested novacaine but i dont understand why novacaine would be any better?? and wont the epi in it effect my heart? he says it could, so what is the benefit? i just want it out .
