Kansas reports first death from lung disease linked to vaping

3-cases-of-lung-illnesses-being-investigated-for-possible-link-to-vaping-delaware-health-officials-say

Gov. Cuomo announced Monday vape shops will be required to post warnings of the dangers of smoking e-cigarettes, and that the state's Department of Health is launching an investigation into companies producing vaping substances.

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. "I urge Kansans to be careful".

US health officials have noted that six Americans have died so far due to lung-related illnesses caused by vaping or e-cigarettes. Also, those who use the product should monitor their health for the signs and symptoms of the lung disease.

According to the CDC, as of 6 September 2019, 33 USA states and one U.S. territory reported more than 450 possible cases of respiratory illness associated with the use of e-cigarette products.

Regardless of the ongoing investigation, people who use e-cigarette products should not buy them off the street and should not modify e-cigarette products or add any substances that are not intended by the manufacturer.

The state has had six reports associated to the national lung disease outbreak, including three which they believe to be confirmed or probable cases.

Persse said the cases fit the profile of a multistate outbreak of severe pulmonary disease associated with e-cigarette products.

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.

"The explosive increase in vaping among our youth is a public health crisis, and we must educate them and their parents about the dangers of vaping", said Acton. "Don't put yourself in harm's way, and please follow the recommendations of public health officials".

If you are encountering any of these indicators and are concerned immediately after utilizing e-cigarette products and solutions, get hold of your regional health care supplier or the local poison regulate centre at one-800-222-1222.

U.S. health officials have told people to stop vaping. Other symptoms reported by some patients included headache, dizziness and chest pain.

If you need help quitting tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, contact your doctor or go to the ODH website at odh.ohio.gov for information about resources, including the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line (1-800-QUIT-NOW).
