    Dear Docs,
    As one of you is a former Aussie and this episode was on Caffeine, I thought you would like to know, that SIX cups of coffee - is the Queensland State Government's antidote to sleep-deprived doctors killing and harming their patients in a haze of exhaustion.

  • Gar  - What article did you quote?
    The best article I know if is "Energy Drinks: The New Eye-Opener For Adolescents" By Babu, Church, Lewander in Clinical Pediatric Emergency Medicine in 2008. It gives doses of a bunch of different energy drinks, and effects.
    Summary: Caffeine doses biggest from Espresso but pretty big in energy drinks and wicked big in pills if people take a bunch. Caffeine is an adenosine antagonist so predisposes to SVT and seizures. But the important clinical picture in toxicity is the strong emetogenic effects. Patients with adrenergic effects and vomiting should prompt you to think of possible caffeine overdose.
