USA officials revise vaping illness count to 380 in 36 states

  • Smoking Less Vaping More

The new case count is the first national aggregate based on the CDC case definition developed and shared with states in late August. It's now reporting confirmed and probable cases, rather than possible cases or cases under investigation.

The current number of cases is expected to increase as additional cases are classified, according to the CDC.

A confirmed case is someone who recently used an e-cigarette product or vaped, developed a breathing illness, and for whom testing did not show an infection.

"We do not yet know the specific cause of these illnesses", CDC officials said.

NY officials have been focused on a substance called vitamin E acetate, which recently has been used as a thickener, particularly in black market vape cartridges that also contain THC.

The CDC has not found any common infection among the cases, leading officials to suspect chemical exposure as the cause.

The result is that health officials now say there are 380 confirmed and probable cases in 36 states and one USA territory.

Six total deaths have been confirmed in six states.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health on September 11 issued a mandate requiring health care providers to immediately report all vaping-associated pulmonary diseases to the department. The agency is now counting only cases that are most closely linked to use of electronic cigarettes.

On Thursday, the state's Public Health and Health Planning Council passed emergency regulations to require stores that sell vaping products there to post signs on the dangers of using illegal vaping products.

The CDC recommends that vapers who switched from cigarettes not return to smoking, and if they continue to use e-cigarettes, monitor themselves for symptoms. "Those who use e-cigarettes should seek medical attention for any health concerns".

"While the CDC investigation of the possible cases of lung illness and deaths reportedly associated with the use of e-cigarette products is ongoing, service members and their families or dependents are encouraged not to use e-cigarette products", said Dr. Terry Adirim, deputy assistant secretary of defense, Health Services Policy and Oversight.
