State of Connecticut Investigating Four Cases of Vaping-Related Lung Injuries in Stamford

Posted by Matthew Marin | Oct 23, 2019 | 0 Comments

According to an article in the Stamford Advocate (Article HERE) that ran late last week, the State of Connecticut Health Department is looking into four recent instances of lung injuries related to vaping involving Stamford residents.  The most recent figures indicate that Fairfield County leads CT in the number of such injuries with the majority of those injured requiring hospitalization.

In a press release issued by the Stamford Department of Health on October 17th, 2019 they released the following information:

"Stamford's cases of lung injuries related to vaping range from ages 16 to 63 years old, with the majority requiring hospitalization.  Cases of hospitalization can occur as quickly as the same day of reported symptoms, to months after first symptoms.  There is currently no classic clinical picture linked to lung injuries associated with vaping.  Individuals who use e-cigarettes or other vaping products and develop respiratory, gastrointestinal, or other symptoms should see their healthcare provider."
