Delaware probes 3 possible cases of vape-related lung issues

The vaping industry has blamed the surge in the contagion on black market products, but health officials have yet to rule out any vaping devices - legal or illegal - as a potential cause.

The Kansas death is at least the fourth reported in a middle aged or older person.

Kansas health officials confirmed the first death in the state Tuesday associated with an outbreak of serious lung disease related to vaping or using e-cigarettes.

The Department of Health declined to give the precise number of reported cases or disclose where the residents live. Numerous sickened - but not all - had been vaping THC, the chemical that gives marijuana its high.

San Francisco, the home of market leader Juul Labs, became the first American city to ban e-cigarettes in June previous year. The liquid can contain nicotine, flavorings and other ingredients.

To date, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention investigation has not uncovered evidence that vaping-related illnesses are infectious.

Canadian officials are monitoring the situation in the U.S. Last week, Health Canada warned people who vape to monitor themselves for symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing and chest pain.

Health officials said they do not have detailed information on what specific e-cigarette products were used by the deceased patient in Kansas.

As flu season approaches, medical professionals are warning that people who use e-cigarettes could be more susceptible to getting the virus. 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.

Eighty percent of those patients reported the use of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of cannabis, she said.

"This is an epidemic", said Berlin, who has been a practicing respiratory therapist in Orlando for 35 years.

The CDC has already highlighted in data released this week about 450 lung disease cases due to vaping across 33 states and people have been advised caution about buying these e-cigarettes from street vendors. "The CDC and the Surgeon General agree that the use of c-cigarettes by kids, teens and young adults is unsafe".

However, emergency room doctors at WellSpan York Hospital say they suggest people stick with the CDC's recommendations and avoid vaping all together until more is known.
