Abstract

Abstract: Compared with children exposed to traditional cigarettes, those exposed to nicotine in e-cigarettes are 5.2 times more likely to be admitted to a healthcare facility and have 2.6 times the risk of a severe outcome. This article discusses nicotine toxicity in children accidentally exposed to e-cigarettes containing nicotine and reviews appropriate nursing interventions.
