Study: Effect of Vaping On Heart Function

It is common knowledge that cigarette smoking creates multiple health risks. One of the more adverse diseases caused by smoking is coronary heart disease, a leading cause of death in the US. Among many other health and lifestyle reasons, the serious health conditions associated with smoking is one of the main motivators for smokers to switch to vaping. With health consciousness growing in the field of nicotine consumption, numerous studies have been conducted to examine the direct effects of vaping on health. In relation to heart disease, it is important for this research to be conducted to give people the knowledge and understanding of how vaping really affects our health, as it is a relatively new occurrence. One particular study investigated the instant effects of both smoking and vaping. The study measured the heart function a few minutes after vaping or smoking, compared to a baseline reading prior to any smoking or vaping. Results found that those who smoked had an instant and significant change in heart functioning, and those who vaped had no adverse effects. It was concluded, “This study provides the first clinical evidence that electronic cigarettes have less acute adverse effects on myocardial function when compared to tobacco cigarettes.”

 

It is important to note, however, that as vaping is such a new form of nicotine ingestion, there needs to be much more study into the long terms effects, to confidently conclude that it is safe. Compared to smoking, the results do point at it being a safer method, but as it is still nicotine consumption, this does not mean that vaping is 100% fine for the body’s health.

How to Maximize Your Results: Smoker’s Transition to Vaping

Upgrading e-cig vaporizer with kanthal clapton coil dripSwitching to a safer, healthier alternative than smoking is one of the main reasons people begin vaping. To help to curb cravings and allow you to maintain the element of routine is paramount for those tapering themselves from a smoking addiction. Some people also come to vaping without any background of smoking, but purely for the novel pleasure and social function. For those, however, coming off smoking and looking to get the most out of the vaping process to help with their transition, here are a few tips on how best to utilize the vaping technique so as to get the most benefit from the experience.

 

There are generally two types of vaping styles. Mouth-to-lung inhalation is more suited to how smokers inhale. In this two step process, you draw the ‘smoke’ into the lungs, and then into the mouth. The resistance and airflow settings need to be tweaked here to ensure that this form of vaping flows with more ease, like tighter airflow. Take longer, slower puffs when vaping to draw the process out longer to get more effect. It is said that it can take about 30 min to get the same amount of nicotine from your vape than it would from 5 mins of smoking, so for those looking to really aid their cravings in the transition, vape for much longer.

The other form of vaping is the direct-to-lung style, which is where the vapor directly comes down into the lungs in one process as you inhale. This requires a much larger airflow setting on your device. It is recommended for those switching straight from smoking, the mouth-to-lung form is most suitable for the transition, though overtime, you will find your own rhythm and preferred style, depending on the effect you wish to achieve.
