WHO: Dr. Nels Rose, an emergency medicine physician with BayCare Clinic, was interviewed for a story about the difficulties of diagnosing vaping-related illnesses that closely mirror respiratory illnesses caused by cold and flu viruses.
WHAT: “Unfortunately, the signs and symptoms of vape-associated lung disease are very similar to viral illnesses ... cough, cold, congestion,” Rose says. “We can’t necessarily differentiate in the acute phase whether it’s vape- or e-cigarette-associated process vs. a viral illness.”
