  • CDC Investigating Possible Link Between Vaping and Lung Illnesses

The Centers for Disease Control is investigating more than 100 cases of a mysterious lung disease linked to the use of e-cigarettes.

The CDC said Saturday it had counted 94 possible cases of severe lung illness associated with vaping in 14 states from June 28 to August 15.

The DSHS is asking health care providers to watch for cases of severe lung disease and ask patients with severe respiratory symptoms about e-cigarette use or vaping.

Thirty of these reports have been in Wisconsin where the state Department of Public Health has confirmed 15 cases among those 16 to 34 years of age using a definition it drafted with another 15 among those 16 to 53 under investigation. In Wisconsin alone, there were reported 30 of these cases.

Patients diagnosed with severe lung disease from vaping sometimes experienced nausea, chest pain and diarrhea.

These cases are similar to cases reported nationally in other states such as Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota, the news release said. At this stage, there's no conclusive evidence that infectious disease is causing the illnesses, and no specific e-cigarette brands or products have been implicated in the investigation.

First off, clinicians should always ask about drug use as part of a patient's general history.

A CDC official was not able to offer more information regarding the investigation, and representatives for the state health sectors did not give any response to inquiries.

A mystery lung disease has raised the alarm in the U.S., where health officials have warned of a potential link to vaping. Some had severe breathing problems that required ventilation.

"We do need to concern ourselves with the long term side effects might be in terms of respiratory side effects particularly with patients with chronic respiratory issues and other side effects", said Dr. Dan Urbine, a pulmonologist at UF Shands and VA hospital. The CDC stresses that e-cigarettes are not safe for kids, teens, young adults, pregnant women or adults who do not now use tobacco products.

A spokesperson for Juul, a leading e-cigarette company, said it is monitoring the reports, which suggest victims were vaping nicotine and THC, a controlled substance the company does not sell.

The patients reported using e-cigarettes or vaping in the weeks and months before they were hospitalized.

The illnesses come amid growing concerns about the use of e-cigarettes, particularly among teenagers.
