Can dental anesthetic really make your heart beat faster?
from Oral Answers
Back when I was in dental school, the instructors told us to always pull back on the anesthetic syringe before injecting. By doing this, we would make sure that we weren't injecting the anesthetic into a blood vessel, which would cause the epinephrine in the anesthetic to make the patient's heart feel like it was beating out of their chest.
