Answer

Rare cases of caffeine-induced ventricular dysrhythmias refractory to advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) protocols are reported. In general, however, the prognosis is excellent for patients with caffeine toxicity who reach a medical facility and who can be supported through the acute phase.
