Man Overdoses on Energy Drinks

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Didn't realise this was such a public health issue:
Energy Drinks and the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease: A Review of Current Literature, Muhammad A Mangi, Hiba Rehman, Muhammad Rafique, and Michael Illovsky, Cureus. 2017 Jun; 9(6): e1322.

The safety of EDs and shots remains debatable, as there are a number of cases where they have produced adverse events in patients. Recently, ED-associated emergency visits have sharply increased [3]. They are often found in combination with other substances, such as alcohol and drugs of abuse, which further potentiates the effect of EDs [4]. EDs have been recognized to cause cardiovascular changes, particularly cardiac arrhythmias [1]. These cardiovascular changes can lead to morbidity and mortality [5]. This article will focus on cardiovascular changes associated with EDs, ingredients of EDs, pharmacokinetics, and the mechanism of EDs.

Randomized Controlled Trial of High‐Volume Energy Drink Versus Caffeine Consumption on ECG and Hemodynamic Parameters Emily A. Fletcher, PharmD; Carolyn S. Lacey, MD; Melenie Aaron, BS; Mark Kolasa, MD; Andrew Occiano, PharmD; Sachin A. Shah, PharmD

Background-Caffeine in doses <400 mg is typically not considered arrhythmogenic, but little is known about the additional
ingredients in energy drinks. We evaluated the ECG and blood pressure (BP) effects of high-volume energy drink consumption when compared with caffeine alone

Conclusions The corrected QT interval and systolic BP were significantly higher post high-volume energy drink
consumption when compared with caffeine alone. Larger clinical trials validating these findings and evaluation of noncaffeine ingredients within energy drinks are warranted ... 116.004448

To increase energy levels, most people reach for a cup of coffee or tea. However, in recent years, energy drinks have been the pick-me-up of choice, especially among younger people.But, here’s the warning: Researchers from the University of Texas at Houston have found that these high-caffeine, high-sugar beverages have a negative impact on heart health.

Within just 90 minutes of having one of these drinks, blood vessels can constricts dramatically – by as much as half in some cases. This reduces blood supply and nutrients to the body’s organs and inhibits their function. ... -2772.html
