An Analysis of The Implications of The Use of E-Cigarette or Vaping Products on Adolescence Health

Bolude Oludele Oluwade


This study analyzes the implications that the use of e-cigarette or vaping products has on adolescence health (i.e. lungs) to inform medical practices, and public health policy by using two separate patients’ medical reports. Statistically, most of the use of vaping products is reportedly seen among the male population, with a male to female predominance ratio of 2 is to 1 (i.e. 2:1), whereby the majority of the patients fall under young adult population (i.e. age less than 35 years but greater than or equal to age 18 years). Two separate cases report among different patients were used for the analysis of this study. The first case took into account a vaping related issue for 29-year-old male, while the second case considered a report for 28-year-old female. Deductively, the study revealed that vaping can cause breathing problems, organ damage, addiction and other conditions irrespective of gender type. Specifically, the analysis of the two cases revealed to readers that vaping causes lungs injury or damage, while most of the injury appears to be chemical in nature, and superadded viral or bacterial infections are rare as most of the testing of E-cigarettes fluids showed no bacterial contamination. The study further revealed that vaping related complications or effects are the same for both males and females. Above all, the study revealed that the tetrahydrocannabinol products are most commonly implicated in causing vaping-induced lung injury in almost 75 to 80% of the morbidity cases.
