CAHAN Disease Notification – Health Advisory for Health Care Professionals Regarding Vaping Associated Pulmonary Injury (VAPI)
Since June 2019, 102 cases of Vaping-associated Pulmonary Injury (VAPI) requiring hospitalization have been reported to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Most patients report vaping the cannabis compounds tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and/or cannabidiol (CBD), and some patients also report vaping nicotine products, although the exact cause of illness is not yet known. This health alert advises:
  • Clinicians who identify cases similar to those described in this health advisory are asked to report the cases to their local health department.
  • Local health departments should report new cases or direct any inquiries to the CDPH Duty Officer or (916) 328-3605. Please also contact the CDPH Duty Officer when any vaping devices or supplies have been collected from a patient and can be turned over to CDPH for testing.
  • CDPH is urging everyone to quit vaping altogether, no matter the substance or source, until current investigations are complete. 
  • For those who continue, consumers are urged to avoid buying any vaping products on the street, to purchase cannabis products from licensed businesses (whose products are tested), never modify a store-bought vape product, monitor themselves for respiratory illness, and seek immediate medical attention if they experience symptoms related to VAPI.
Вe warned & be well!
