This course filled in a few gaps about vaping and the possible negative outcomes of vaping. I personally know a few people that vape. With these facts from this course I'm able to teach about the dangers of vaping and the use of e-cigarettes such EVALI. The symptoms of EVALI were expressed clearly which enables each provider to recognize when a patient presents with pulmonary distress to include questions about vaping and use of e-cigarettes, along with questions about the use of tobacco, marijuana, alcohol, or illicit drugs so that the patient can be treated appropriately.

I’m sure this disease has been eclipsed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It would be interesting to know if warnings about vaping dangers were widespread enough prior to the pandemic lockdown, given that self-comforting habits ((alcohol/tobacco) bloomed during that period. It is interesting that the deaths were also in an older group, just like COVID.

I thought the course was great. Easy to follow and I am a nurse, not a doctor. I work as a school nurse at a high school and wanted to hear more about this EVALI that is occurring and will use the information in teaching my students the dangers of vaping/ecig.

Very interesting, I've been focused on Covid, so this was a nice step in a different direction.
