Upon further examination, his heart rate was confirmed to be abnormally high. He said prior to coming to the hospital, he had consumed “a series of energy drinks, and a cup of coffee,” Dr. Cathleen Clancy, associate medical director of the National Capital Poison Center, recalled.

It was three in the morning, and the symptoms were all-too-familiar.
