There is currently an outbreak of vaping associated pulmonary injury spanning several states, which is under intense investigation by the Centers for Disease Control. We will certainly be learning more about this in the coming weeks to months.
However, for now, how should we manage patients who present in respiratory distress following vaping? This chapter reviews the available evidence regarding vaping associated pulmonary injury. I've seen this once, so I don't believe it's quite as rare as might be suggested by the scanty number of available case reports.
The IBCC chapter is located here.
