Houston reports 3 teens treated for vape-related lung issues

Houston reports 3 teens treated for vape-related lung issues”

NY state will require health warning signs in shops that sell vaping devices following hundreds of cases of lung illnesses believed to be related to the habit, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday.

Concerns over whether vaping is harmful to your health have grown lately - so much so that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday he wants his state to pass a law banning flavored electronic cigarettes.

"It is becoming serious so quickly", she said. The remaining three are still under investigation.

This patient had been one of six under investigation for confirmed or suspected vaping-induced severe lung disease in Kansas. "Our market is the over 1 billion adult smokers worldwide who should have the opportunity to switch to vapor products if they so desire". When we have a patient identified who has this type of illness in the county, it is triggering a team investigation similar to how we react to a communicable disease.

The state health department said it's working with the Centers for Disease Control as it gathers more information.

Like many users of vaping pens, Constantino picked up the device after quitting cigarette smoking three years ago, and said, 'It's the hardest thing I've ever done'.

"That is a huge mistake", she said. These tools are likely to include a web-based youth vaping prevention education module, parent and caregiver awareness education, public awareness initiatives and outreach to community leaders.

Cuomo also announced Monday the New York Department of Health will investigate vaping companies and require shops that sell e-cigarettes to post a warning. "Last year alone, we saw a 48% increase in vaping among middle schoolers and a 78% increase in vaping among high schoolers". Additional indicators have included headache, dizziness and chest pain.

In some cases, symptoms worsened during a period of days or weeks and required hospitalization.

While vaping has been deemed safer than smoking tobacco, and therefore encouraged as an effective way to stop smoking, it's becoming clear that vaping does not come without its own risks.

Health officials in Kansas on Tuesday confirmed the death of a resident, the sixth person to die in the US from the severe respiratory illness being linked to vaping. Anyone with these symptoms is encouraged to promptly seek medical attention.
