SESSION TITLE: Tobacco Cessation and Prevention

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: To determine whether switching from tobacco cigarettes to EC reduces shortness of breath and coughing, and increases activity.

METHODS: We searched our Electronic Medical Record System and identified 205 patients who reported using EC as part of a tobacco smoking cessation plan. Research assistants conducted telephone surveys with those who agreed to participate. The survey included questions about smoking history, smoking cessation history, and changes in symptoms (shortness of breath and coughing) and activity level since beginning EC use. We used STATA Version 13 to calculate a test of proportion to compare reported changes in symptoms in smokers versus ex-smokers.
