    I understand that many people are executed each year in the USA alone for people on death row, one of the most common way of execution (as well as electric chair ) is the lethal injection, people who are there to end your life fill an injection/s full of poison and chemicals and inject it in your vein killing you


    I have a question, I have veiny forearms but you can only notice really as I'm working out at the gym lifting heavy weights, lots of people tell me my arms are veiny. (not a steroid user, just been going the gym for a long time )

    Just wondered, as I have veiny arms if I was put on death row and they injected me with a lethal injection would it's affect work better on me and kill me faster ??

    thanks

    Lifting weights, makes your heart muscle stronger, increasing the stroke volume. But the cardiac output will remain the same as your heart rate will decrease to make up for the increase in stroke volume. You'll still get the same volume of blood propelling through your veins in a given time and so, no, being more veiny as a result of working out won't make the lethal injection work faster.

    I guess if the arm is not variable then they will stick in in the leg but I'm asking that because my arms are veiny surely the lethal injection would work better and kill me faster ?

    But I seem to have veiner arms than some other people at the gym, if somebody injected a lethal injection in my arms surely it would kill me quicker ?

    they give several chemicals one after the other. the first one is like a general anaesthetic to make you unconscious... the others are to shut down your organs... so you won't suffer. in theory.

    You are first sedated using Sodium Thiopental, which will reach the brain in approximately 30 seconds. Following this, you are injected with Pancuronium Bromide which will induce muscle paralysis, causing to you suffocate. Only after this will they administer a lethal dose of Potassium Chloride, which will cause heart failure.

    None of the above will be affected by having veiny arms.

    Actually the second one suffocates you - it paralyses the muscles around your lungs so you can't breathe.

    Then the last drug causes you to suffer a fatal heart attack.


    I think I'd rather take a bullet to the head to be honest.

    Did you skip the class at school where they taught you about proper nouns?
