Four students at a high school in Ha Dong District, Hanoi have been hospitalized since Tuesday following the use of e-cigarettes and related products, the local police said on Friday.

Three tenth graders - N.C.D., N.T.H., and N.H.T. - felt fatigue, nauseous, discomfort, and burning hot after drinking a beverage from a bottle on Tuesday.

Their school’s staff rushed them to Military Hospital 103, which is just 2.5 kilometers away from the school.

D. later confessed to pouring two drops of e-liquid in the beverage bottle to prank his friends.

On the same day, N.T.D., a 11th grader at the same high school, became dizzy and tired and collapsed after using an e-cigarette pod given by a classmate. 

Currently, the health of all these four students is stable.

E-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is addictive and can harm brain development in children, cause memory impairment, and affect intelligence due to its effects on brain development, according to the Hanoi Department of Health.

Nicotine can even cause chest pain, heart failure, stroke, and immunodeficiency, as well as weaken the immune system.

There is also a high risk of acute poisoning due to high-dose nicotine.

Many types of toxic flavorings mixed with other substances such as drugs, marijuana, and other stimulants can also be found in e-cigarettes.
