Michigan State University Helps You Understand Vaping

How Vaping Might Increase Risks From Covid-19


how smoking vaping and drug use might

increase risks from cava nineteen

earlier this month the US Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention updated

its covered 19 recommendations to

specifically target older adults and

people with serious underlying medical

conditions they labeled this group is

higher risk however another group of

people could be particularly vulnerable

to cough at 19 and hasn't received as

much attention

people who smoke vapor have substance

use disorders the research community

should be alert to the possibility that

cava 19 could hit some populations with

substance use disorders particularly

hard dr. Nora Volkow director of the

National Institute on Drug Abuse wrote

in a blog post published last week

because cava nineteen attacks the lungs

those who smoke tobacco or marijuana or

who vape maybe especially threatened

volcko said when someone's lungs are

exposed to flu or other infections the

adverse effects of smoking or vaping are

much more serious than among people who

do not smoke or vape Stenton Glantz

professor of medicine and director of

the Center for tobacco research control

and education at University of

California San Francisco wrote in a blog

post updated Tuesday vaping affects your

lungs at every level it effects the

immune function in your nasal cavity by

affecting cilia which push foreign

things out the ability of your upper

Airways to clear viruses is compromised

Glantz said in a phone interview the cdc

reported on Wednesday that young adults

under age 44 make up a big part of cava

19 hospitalizations in the US and Lance

questions whether the vaping epidemic

might have contributed to this some of

my pulmonary colleagues have noted

people under 30 with cava 19 ending up

in hospitals and a couple were vapors

Glenn said however he said there hasn't

been enough research or evidence to

support whether there's a link people

who smoke or generally at an increased

risk of serious complications such as

acute respiratory distress syndrome when

they have a severe infection the odds of

a coffered 19 case becoming more severe

and at the most extreme leading to death

were 14 times higher among people who

had a history of smoking compared to

those who did not smoke bland said

citing a study from China published

the peer-reviewed Chinese medical

journal in February the study also found

those with a history of smoking had a

14% higher risk of developing pneumonia

concerns about other drugs besides

smoking and e-cigarettes Volker wrote

that people who abuse opioids and

methamphetamine may be at risk for

serious complications of cava 19 because

of the effects these drugs have on

respiratory and pulmonary health opioid

slow breathing and have already been

shown to increase mortality in people

with respiratory diseases according to

volcko thus diminished lung capacity

from cava 19 could similarly endanger

this population

she said methamphetamine has been shown

to produce significant pulmonary damage

since it binds heavily to pulmonary

tissue volcko explained in a phone

interview this will likely increase the

risk of negative outcomes if used during

a cava nineteen infection people with

substance use disorders also rely on

treatment that traditionally involves

human interaction such as therapy

sessions or method in clinics which will

be challenging in the setting of

widespread social distancing according

to dr. allison lin assistant professor

in psychiatry in the addiction center at

the university of michigan lin said it's

important for everyone to quit smoking

due to its unknown but potentially

serious effects uncovered 19 patients

this is particularly important for

people with substance use disorders

since they are more likely to smoke she

said for everyone infected with cava 19

one thing people can do now to reduce

the risk of serious illness is quitting

smoking

according to glance at a time when

people are looking to reduce risk

it's very sensible to stop insulting

your lungs he said CNN's fate Karimi
