As of 8/27, 215 possible cases of severe respiratory disease associated w/ use of #ecigarette products have been reported from 25 states. @CDCgov and @US_FDA are working closely with state & local health officials to investigate. bit.ly/2MItTWB
.@CDCgov is helping states investigate whether the respiratory illnesses may be linked to specific devices, ingredients or contaminants in the devices, or substances associated with #ecigarette product use.
While some cases are similar and appear to be linked to #ecigarette product use, more information is needed to determine what is causing the respiratory illnesses. In many cases, patients have also acknowledged recent use of THC or CBD-containing e-cigarette products.
#Ecigarette users: While this investigation is ongoing, consider refraining from using e-cigarette products including nicotine, THC, and CBD. Monitor for symptoms and promptly seek medical attention if you have concerns about your health.
#Ecigarette users: Do not buy e-cigarette products off the street (e.g., e-cigarette products with THC and other cannabinoids.) Do not modify e-cigarette products or add any substances to these products that are not intended by the manufacturer.
Regardless of the ongoing investigation, #ecigarette products should not be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women, and adults who do not currently use tobacco products.
If you use #eigarette products, monitor yourself for symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breaths, chest pain) and promptly seek medical attention if you have concerns about your health.
If you suffer from any unexpected tobacco or #ecigarette-related health issues, please submit a detailed report to @US_FDA: bit.ly/2ZELS1Q
