Heart disease is the main cause of morbidity and mortality in smokers. Forty percent of deaths in smokers is a result of coronary artery disease alone. Traditional cigarette smoking is expected to cause 1 billion deaths during the 21st century through cardiac and lung disease, according to researchers. The 2012 European Society of Cardiology was held this past weekend in Germany, where Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos from Greece, presented his findings on electronic cigarettes versus traditional cigarettes. His study compared the acute effects of regular cigarettes on cardiac function with the effects of electronic cigarettes.
Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigs as they are commonly known, are a high-tech, non-flammable solution for obtaining nicotine without exposure to tobacco. Smokers receive a dose of vaporized liquid nicotine solution and exhale water vapor that is similar to a puff of smoke, giving a physical sensation and flavor to inhaling tobacco smoke. An EverSmoke electronic cigarette contains none of the detrimental components of traditional cigarettes; no tobacco, smoke, tar or carcinogens.
Dr. Farsalinos study measured 20 healthy daily traditional cigarette smokers and 22 daily experienced e-cig smokers both aged 25-45. The study measured the myocardial function before and after smoking one traditional cigarette and an e-cig for 7 minutes, for the respective smoking group. The researchers found that smoking one single tobacco cigarette led to a significant acute myocardial dysfunction while the electronic cigarette had no acute adverse effect on cardiac function.
Smoking a tobacco cigarette had important hemodynamic consequences, with significant increases in systolic and diastolic blood pressure and in heart rate. In contrast, electronic cigarettes produced only a slight elevation in diastolic blood pressure, reported Dr. Faraslinos in his study. This is an indication that although nicotine was present in the liquid used (11mg/ml), it is absorbed at a lower rate compared to regular cigarette smoking, he said.
The liquids found in an electronic cigarette, after laboratory analyses, have shown to be less toxic than traditional cigarettes. Most studies found that electronic cigarettes have no nitrosamines, but the studies that did find nitrosamines in an electronic cigarette were at levels that were 500-1400 times less than the amount present in one tobacco cigarette. Thus, if an electronic cigarette is used daily, for four to 12 months, then the amount of nitrosamines present will be the same as a single tobacco cigarette.
A representative from EverSmoke electronic cigarettes stated, We are thrilled to continue to see research being done on electronic cigarettes. The research is a constant confirmation that e-cigs are a better smoking alternative. As the research continues, we hope to see more individuals switching to the better smoking lifestyle by purchasing e-cigs.
Dr. Farsalinos said It is too early to say whether the electronic cigarette is a revolution in tobacco harm reduction but the potential is there. It is the only available product that deals with both the chemical (nicotine delivery) and psychological (inhaling and exhaling smoke, holding it, etc) addiction to smoking, laboratory analyses indicate that it is significantly less toxic and our study has shown no significant defects in cardiac function after acute use. He continued, considering the extreme hazards associated with cigarette smoking, currently available data suggest that electronic cigarettes are far less harmful and substituting tobacco with electronic cigarettes may be beneficial to health.
