Patient who contracted a serious lung disease after vaping has died

first_imgOfficials in Illinois are reporting that one person has died after contracting a serious lung disease due to vaping.The patient who was only identified as being between the ages of 18- 38, passed away after being hospitalized with the illness.While only one person had died due to the illness directly linked to vaping, officials with the CDC have reported that they have been notified about over 150 possible cases in just about 16 states.The Illinois Department of Public Health released a public statement after the number of people with the illness doubled in the past week:“The severity of illness people are experiencing is alarming and we must get the word out that using e-cigarettes and vaping can be dangerous,” IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike said in the release. “We requested a team from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help us investigate these cases and they arrived in Illinois on Tuesday.”Officials also reported that there is no one brand that is causing the illness and that they were so far able to isolate the source to vaping because the illness is an inhalation injury, with the lungs apparently reacting to a caustic substance.That substance, however, remains unknown. Several agencies are currently investigating the illness.last_img read more

Breaking: HSE confirms outbreak of Mumps in Donegal and North-West

first_imgAn outbreak of mumps in the North-West has led doctors to warn parents to keep children with the condition at home.The HSE has confirmed to Donegal Daily that there have been 13 confirmed cases of Mumps in the North West since the start of March.These have been mainly in the South Donegal and Sligo town area. The number of cases has decreased somewhat in the past week. The outbreak follows a separate outbreak of Measles in Donegal in recent weeks.A spokesperson for the HSE said all children and young adults should have two MMR doses which protects against Mumps, Measles and Rubella. Protection for Rubella is important for women in the childbearing years.Dr Anthony Breslin said “The recent cases of Measles and Mumps in the North West demonstrate what can happen when MMR vaccine rates fall”.Mumps is an acute viral infection that is spread from person to person. It is a potentially serious disease for children and young adults and is very common in young children who are not vaccinated against it. Mumps usually occurs in school-aged children, teenagers or young adults, although older people may also contract the disease.Symptoms of mumps include fever, headache, malaise and swollen, tender salivary glands (usually the parotid gland which is located just below the front of the ear). Mumps often gives the appearance of swollen cheeks or jaw. Symptoms of mumps typically begin to appear 14 to 25 days (usually 15-18 days) after exposure.Approximately 20% of infected individuals will have no symptoms. Some may have only non-specific or primarily respiratory symptoms (particularly in children <5 years of age). Symptoms tend to decrease after one week and have usually resolved after 10 days. There is no specific treatment for mumps apart from relieving the symptoms.Mumps is spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing and by direct contact with saliva or discharges from the nose and throat of infected individuals.People infected with mumps may spread the infection to others, even when they do not have any symptoms. People with mumps are most infectious from 2 days before to 5 days after onset of symptoms.Complications of mumps may occur and can include testicular inflammation, ovarian inflammation, meningitis, pancreatitis and rarely encephalitis (brain inflammation) or deafness. Although testicular inflammation occurs in up to 40% of postpubertal males, fortunately sterility is rare.Anyone who develops mumps should stay at home for the five days after disease onset to prevent spreading the infection to others. If your child develops the symptoms of mumps please contact your GP (please ring your GP first).Further information on Mumps can be found on the HSE Website at the link below.https://www.hse.ie/eng/health/az/m/mumps/Breaking: HSE confirms outbreak of Mumps in Donegal and North-West was last modified: March 25th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalMeaslesMumpsOutbreaklast_img read more

Sachin Tendulkar opts out of Lanka tour, Sehwag and Zaheer back in team

first_imgThe fit-again duo of opening batsman Virender Sehwag and pace spearhead Zaheer Khan on Wednesday made a comeback but Sachin Tendulkar opted out from India’s 15-member cricket squad for the five one-dayers and a Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka, starting July 21.Tendulkar, who is now a Rajya Sabha member, was a part of the squad for the Asia Cup in March — India’s last ODI assignment — where he completed his 100th international century but decided to opt out of Sri Lanka tour.Watch Sachin’s 100 tons in picturesYoung Mumbai batsman Ajinkya Rahane has replaced Tendulkar in the side. The other change from the side that played in the Asia Cup is the inclusion of left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha in place of out-of-form all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.The Kris Srikkanth-led selection committee, which picked the squad in a meeting here, also decided to replace Praveen Kumar with Zaheer’s pace understudy Umesh Yadav.”We have the best available team. Sachin is not available. I think it is a very good side which has very strong batting line-up and good bowlers and we are confident that it will do well in Sri Lanka,” chairman of selection committee Krishnamachari Srikkanth told reporters after announcing the squad.There was no place for feisty off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who endured indifferent form during the IPL and has now signed up with English county side Essex, as the selectors continued to ignore him while Rahul Sahrma was retained in the side. The team will thus have three spinners on low-bouncing and spinning tracks in Sri Lanka.advertisementThe team will also have seven specialist batsmen, four seamers and a wicketkeeper in captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.The rest of the squad, to be led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, remains the same with the selectors retaining Virat Kohli as vice-captain, a position that the Delhi youngster took from opener Gautam Gambhir during the Asia Cup.Squad:M S Dhoni (captain), Virat Kohli (vice-captain), Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav, Ashok Dinda, Vinay Kumar, Ajinkya Rahane, Manoj Tiwari, Rahul Sharmalast_img read more
