Lung injury associated with vaping

Lung injury associated with vaping”

The guidelines are meant to give providers guidance during the initial assessment, evaluation, management and follow-up of people who have the lung injuries.

To confirm the relationship between vaping and lung disease, KCDC formed an investigational research team along with private experts to set case criteria and conduct in-depth probes.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources' Bureau for Public Health is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to investigate a multi-state outbreak of lung injuries associated with e-cigarette or vaping use.

While the CDC can not pinpoint the specific cause of the illnesses, authorities say you should only buy and use vaping products purchased from reputable, regulated dealers.

"According to an analysis by health officials in Wisconsin and IL, about 87% of those recently injured said they had vaped tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, from prefilled cartridges purchased from "informal sources" during the three months before they developed symptoms", Gottlieb wrote. However, investigators said they are not yet narrowing the scope of their probe, and CDC noted that 13% of cases involve patients who reported using only nicotine vaping products.

Although vaping products and electronic cigarettes are often advertised as less harmful than regular cigarettes, the debate over the health effects of e-cigarettes is ongoing.

3, West Virginia has reported five lung injury cases associated with the use of e-cigarette or vaping products with no deaths so far in West Virginia.

The public health institute recognize, however, that there may be more than one cause, as vaping products contain many different chemicals, which are all now under investigation. FDA warned consumers last week to stop vaping THC products until the main cause of illness and death is identified. Adults who used ecigarettes to quit cigarette smoking are advised not to return to smoking cigarettes.
