Mass. health officials announce first death linked to vaping-related lung injury

Vaping linked to 19 deaths in the United States

Data shows all reported patients have a history of e-cigarette use or vaping.

She noted that states are responsible for the initial investigation and classification and typically report deaths to the CDC once they are confirmed, which the agency then includes in its weekly update of numbers.

MA state health officials on Monday confirmed one death from a mysterious lung illness linked to e-cigarettes, bringing the total number of fatalities to 21 across 18 U.S. states.

This person reported recent vaping of nicotine products.

E-cigarettes and vaping products are unsafe and unregulated. Some illnesses have been traced to off-market products.

Caution is especially advised regarding the use of off-market THC-containing liquids. And the state warned against those that are homemade which often involve modifying or adding substances to products purchased at retail stores.

Hawai'i has one of the highest rates of vaping among high school (26%) and middle school youth (16%) in the nation, health officials say.

The CDC said the latest findings from its investigation into lung injury associated with e-cigarette use, or vaping, indicate that among cases for which information on substances used in these products was available, tetrahydrocannabinol-containing products (or a combination of THC- and nicotine-containing products) were used by more than three-quarters of people affected by the outbreak.

The act of selling to anyone under the age of 21 is illegal in Hawai'i.

Gov. Charlie Baker declared a public health emergency and imposed four-month statewide ban on sales of vaping products on September 24.

Last week, for the first time, health officials are urged all Americans to 'refrain from vaping, ' they they said in a Thursday telebriefing that they do not want former smokers who now vape to return to combustible cigarettes.

"If you choose to use these products, monitor yourself for symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath, chest pain) and promptly seek medical attention if you have concerns about your health", the FDA suggests. You may also call the Hawai'i Poison Hotline at 1-800-222-1222 at any time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
