As a lung and critical care doctor here at
Rush, I have seen first-hand some patients
who have come in with vaping-associated lung
Patients have presented with chest pain, shortness
of breath, cough.
Some have had fatigue or fever, and others
have come with stomach complaints.
If a person is vaping and has any of these
symptoms, they should probably talk to their
health care provider.
At this point, we are uncertain as to which
products, if any, pose more or less of a danger
to the individual.
We recommend against anyone using products
that are from the street or
not commercially available products.
So if you have used these cigarettes to stop
smoking tobacco products, talk with
your health care provider.
The long-term goal should be to be tobacco-free
but also vaping-free.
