US: Vloeibare nicotine e-sigaret nog steeds gevaar voor kind

02 mei 2018

According to a new study conducted by Nationwide Children's Hospital there were more than 8,200 calls to US poison centers regarding exposures to liquid nicotine and e-cigarettes among children younger than 6 years of age from January 2012 through April 2017, averaging 129 calls each month or more than 4 a day.
The authors recommend adding flow restrictors to liquid nicotine refill bottles, to limit young children's ability to empty the contents of the bottles, and child-resistant chambers on e-cigarette devices. Additionally, the volume and concentration should be limited to a sub-lethal dose. An article about the research is published in Pediatrics (Nieuwsbericht ScienceDaily, 23 april 2018).
