The teens at first had symptoms that suggested a viral or bacterial infection, but doctors determined their lungs had actually sustained some kind of "acute injury" and then the lungs began to fail. She added that investigators are gathering information about the names and types of vape products that were used by the patients, hoping to find a common link.

Twenty-two young people in the Midwest have been hospitalized with serious breathing and lung problems in three Midwestern states, NBC News reports.

"The short- and long-term effects of vaping are still being researched, but these recent hospitalizations have shown that there is the potential for immediate health consequences", Dr. Ngozi Ezike, director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, said in the statement.

The symptoms seen include shortness of breath, fever, coughing, chest pain and possibly headache, vomiting and diarrhea.

A total of 22 people in Minnesota, Wisconsin and IL have been hospitalized after vaping, according to NBC News.

Doctors are hopeful patients will make full recoveries, but since this is all so new, they simply do not know.

The warning from Minnesota follows similar statements by health officials in IL and Wisconsin on teenagers that also required hospitalization due to vaping. "Medical attention is essential; respiratory conditions can continue to decline without proper treatment". In 2018, more than 3.6 million US youth, including one in five high school students and one in 20 middle school students, said that they now used e-cigarettes, the CDC said. They reported that young patients suffering from lung illnesses had been hospitalized for more than a week, with some "admitted to the intensive care unit".

The department said it's working with local health departments, other states, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the US Food and Drug Administration to look into which vaping products were used and where they were obtained.

A recent study from Yale University and Duke University found the e-cigarette liquid in Juul devices contain chemicals known as acetals.
