The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported updated numbers today on the confirmed and probable cases of lung injury and deaths associated with e-cigarette product use, or vaping.

Through Sep. 24, 805 confirmed and probable patient cases of lung injury associated with e-cigarette product use, or vaping, were reported by 46 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

In addition, the death toll continues to rise. To date, 12 fatalities have been reported from 10 states: CA (2), FL, GA, IL, IN, KS (2), MN, MO, MS, OR.

Last week, Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director with the CDC said, “This is a complex investigation.  It spans many states, involves hundreds of cases, and a wide variety of substances and products.

“I’d like to stress how challenging this situation is, as patients may have been exposed to a variety of products and substances, may not know the contents or sources of these products, and in some instances may be reluctant or too ill to fully disclose all the details of interest.  CDC has made it a priority to find out what is causing this outbreak of vaping-related injuries and deaths.”

CDC director, Robert R. Redfield, MD said, “What we do know is that all cases have one thing in common: the use of e-cigarettes or vaping devices.  Most of the cases reported using THC or both THC and nicotine. Some of the cases have reported using only nicotine.”
