Vaping Death Conformed in Kansas

Vitamin E Found In Cannabis-Containing Vape Products Linked To Deadly Lung Infections Across US

As federal officials investigate a multi-state outbreak of lung illnesses associated with the use of e-cigarette products, the state's public health commissioner is temporarily adding possible cases of vaping-associated pulmonary illnesses to the list of conditions clinicians are required to report to the state.

"Idaho health care providers are notifying us of patients with severe respiratory symptoms who report vaping in the days or weeks before they became very sick", said Kathryn Turner, deputy state epidemiologist, in the news release. Lee Norman with KDHE said in a statement.

"The outcome of that inaction has led to potential product manipulation and permitted tobacco companies to lure a new generation with (electronic cigarette) advertising and flavors directed at youth", Jordan said in a statement to the News Service. A lot of people amongst the affected - but not all - were people who said they had been vaping THC, the chemical that provides marijuana its high. The Dept of Health of NY stated that they are investigating reports of high quantities of Vitamin E acetate in 38 cases of vaping in the state. Other symptoms may include fever, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea.

He said millions of people are vaping, and while the idea of vaping has been traditionally marketed as a "safer" alternative to cigarette smoking, we're seeing now, that this isn't true.

In the US, officials at the CDC have warned people not to use vaping products while the cause of the illnesses known as vape lung are being investigated. Although all cases have a a history of using e-cigarette products, the exact cause of these illnesses are still unknown.

The CDC encourages people not to buy the products off the street, either. Merrill says she's had patients who have come in with symptoms associated with vaping. "But nothing that would have foretold the fact that within a week after starting using e-cigarettes for the first time, she developed full-blown acute respiratory distress syndrome and died".

Kansas officials said they do not have detailed information on what types of products were used by the patient.

'Don't put your self in hurt's manner, and please observe the suggestions of public well being officers'. The CDC is encouraging local and state health departments to notify the CDC of possible cases as soon as possible. "The CDC and the Surgeon General agree that the use of c-cigarettes by kids, teens and young adults is unsafe".

USA health officials believe vitamin E oil in THC-infused e-cigarette liquid may be triggering lung damage, but much is unknown about other vapes.
