LOS ANGELES COUNTY REPORTS FIRST VAPE-RELATED DEATH

Los Angeles, Calif. — The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a warning on September 6 urging people to stop using e-cigarettes products. This warning is a reflection of the first death stemming from the use of e-cigarettes or “vaping” in Los Angeles County. This death is believed to be the fourth related deaths nationwide. Authorities in Indiana recently announced a vaping-related death, and relevant fatalities were previously reported in Illinois and Oregon.

Vape

Los Angeles County public health officials announced that there has been a total of 12 cases in the county of illnesses stemming from e-cigarettes, with the illness dubbed vaping-associated pulmonary injury, or VAPI.

According to the CDC, possible vaping-related illnesses have been reported in more than 25 states. Although the CDC has launched a full investigation into vape-related cases to analyze the information to narrow the focus to get answers needed to save lives. While this investigation is on-going, the CDC urges people who vape or use e-cigarette products to monitor themselves for symptoms and promptly seek medical attention for any health concerns. Some symptoms to be vigilant about include:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
