These drinks were supposed to be consumed within a span of 1 hour, with certain restrictions implied by the  experts( only 16 ounces of drinks were supposed to be consumed in a span of 30 minutes).

After this the participant’s heart rate was measured by the electrocardiogram( a tool that measures the way the heart beats). Additionally, their blood pressure was also recorded.

Interestingly the beverages had contained approximately 320 milligrams of caffein for every 32 ounces of liquid.
