Welcome to Regency Square Care Center's news section, where we keep you updated on the latest trends, developments, and concerns in the field of health and aging care. In this article, we highlight a significant issue that has been gaining attention recently: the doubling of e-cigarette poison calls to poison control centers.

The Dangers of E-Cigarette Liquid Nicotine:

E-cigarettes have rapidly gained popularity as an alternative to traditional cigarettes. However, with their rise in popularity, serious health concerns have also emerged. E-cigarette liquid nicotine, which is used to produce the vapor in e-cigarettes, has become a frequent source of poison-related emergencies across the country.

As the use of e-cigarettes continues to grow, so does the number of accidental poisonings resulting from exposure to liquid nicotine. Poison control centers nationwide have reported a concerning surge in calls related to e-cigarette liquid nicotine poisoning. Regency Square Care Center recognizes the importance of addressing this issue and providing our community with accurate and up-to-date information.

The Impact on Public Health:

The rise in e-cigarette poison calls is a serious public health concern. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that e-cigarette liquid nicotine exposure can lead to a range of health problems, including nausea, vomiting, seizures, respiratory distress, and even death in extreme cases.

Children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to these adverse effects. Accidental ingestion or exposure to e-cigarette liquid nicotine can result in severe consequences and requires immediate medical attention. It is crucial for individuals and communities to be aware of the risks associated with e-cigarettes to prevent further harm.
