Thailand sees first case of pneumonia from e-cigarettes

E-cigarettes have been blamed for breathing problems in a 48-year-old male patient admitted to a private hospital, Dr Asadang Ruaycharin, deputy director-general and a spokesman for the Department of Disease Control, said December 7.

 

The man told doctors he had started to smoke e-cigarettes containing marijuana on November 3 and soon developed shortness of breath, fatigue, fever and chest pain.

 

On November 15, he was admitted to a private hospital then transferred to another private hospital on November 18 after lab tests revealed no lung infection but symptoms consistent with pneumonia from electric cigarette use, according to the criteria set by the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. He was treated with intravenous steroid therapy and has now been sent home.

Whenever something beneficial or at worst innocuous is banned in Thailand the first thought is: ‘Who benefits?” It sure ain’t the general public.

When I got back to the UK about 9 months ago. I tried Vabing with 5% cannabis vap (I have sever back pain and take morphine etc). I found it very beneficial both relaxing, ease of pain and enjoyable at nigh. However I stopped due to 2 things: maintenence (wasn't using it enough so it was crystallising up) and that's when I found out Chambers require to be changed and elements need to be changed. Second after losing 2 Chambers of fluid trying to clean it at £25 it was just to expensive for this Scot to justify and that was the same reason I gave up smoking way back in the 1980's when cigarettes wet £0.75 now they are over £8 a pack. The moral is if vape devices require such regular maintenance then Thai's are going to have problems.

Air pollution here is bad enough. Why anyone would want to add to the obvious danger by sucking smoke into their lungs beats me.

Not even pneumonia as infection not found. How many cases of real pneumonia found from cigarettes recently in Thailand?

In Cambodia there is a psuedo TKO ($55) cart and Brass Knuckles ($68). 
Both are fakes. 

What brands are available in Thailand, anyone?

Yep going to get a Shisha pipe and try the real stuff (been told not a big deal in the UK any more even growing one plant). Think it might be nice when the kids are in bed having a bubble or two.

Most probably the same kind of oil used un USA. AFAIK it's not happening in Europe where regulations are stricter. I still believe the e-cig is much less dangerous than normale cigarettes and still a good way to quit, if you want to.

But there are not make to heat oil !
