Health topic: vaping

Health care professionals play an important role in identifying kids who vape and educating them and their families about the risks involved and the resources available. This makes it important to use screening questions that go beyond asking about smoking to also see if kids use JUULs, e-cigarettes, dabs, juice, and vapes and talking to them about the many dangers involved.

It’s also essential to take respiratory symptoms seriously in youngsters who vape. For any patients presenting with lung problems that could be related to vaping you should refer them to Pulmonary Medicine and follow the Massachusetts Department of Public Health reporting requirements.

To contact a Boston Children’s clinician regarding vaping related questions, call our page operator at 617-355-6369 and page 8273 (VAPE).

If you are concerned about your patient’s condition, or your patient is having difficulty breathing, in respiratory distress, experiences skin coloring changes, or is lethargic, please send them directly to the closest Emergency Room.
