Data from the 2019 Minnesota Student Survey shows e-cigarette use nearly doubled from 2016 to 2019 in 8th graders, and one in four 11th graders now use e-cigarettes. Students in all grades surveyed now use e-cigarettes and vapes at five times the rate of conventional cigarettes. As of November 21, there are 119 confirmed or probable cases of lung injuries in Minnesota and 3 confirmed deaths. Physicians play a critical role in helping young people understand the risks of vaping and resources for quitting.
The webinar will focus on:
• Incorporating vaping questions into anticipatory guidance for well visits and/or social history for acute visits
• Forms of nicotine replacement and contraindications, and alternative treatment options
• Recognizing red flags of possible vaping-associated severe lung injury, and recommended evaluation/management of these patients
• Reporting to MDH: samples that need to be obtained and patients that need to be reported
• Advocating for policy changes
• Lucien Gonzalez, adolescent addiction medicine specialist, University of Minnesota, and chair of the AAP Committee on Substance Use and Prevention
• Drs. Anne Griffiths and Nandini Kataria, Pediatric Pulmonologists at Children’s Respiratory & Critical Care Specialists
