Some effects may be the cause of sudden cardiac arrest.
October 25, Nature Communications published a new study. It is about electronic cigarettes. It has been found that exposure to e-cigarette aerosols can cause arrhythmias and cardiac electrical dysfunction.
These were the results of a new animal study by scientists at the University of Louisville (UofL) at the Christina Lee Brown Environmental Institute, writes Sci Tech Daily.
Associate professor of physiology said the results show how short-term exposure to e-cigarettes can destabilize the heart rate due to certain substances in e-liquids. He clarified that e-cigarettes with certain flavors or solvents can provoke arrhythmias. In addition, such effects are fraught with sudden cardiac arrest.
The experiment tested the effect on the hearts of inhaled e-cigarette aerosols, which consisted of only 2 main ingredients of e-liquids (nicotine-free propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin) or flavored e-liquids that contain nicotine.
They found that the animal heart rates of all e-cigarette aerosols slowed down during a puff and accelerated afterwards. At the same time, heart rate variability decreased. Thus, the stress reactions of the “fight or flight” scheme appeared. Liquids flavored with menthol or propylene glycol alone caused ventricular arrhythmias. Conduction disturbances in the heart have also been observed.
This work adds to a growing body of research on the potential toxicity of e-cigarettes to human health. In addition, she proves that the use of cigarettes can disrupt the heart rhythm – this was not known before.
With the popularity of vaping, many began to discuss its benefits and harms. This type of smoking exposes users and bystanders to small amounts of tar, carbon monoxide and carcinogenic nitrosamines due to the lack of a combustion process. However, these cigarettes can deliver aldehydes, particulates, and nicotine in amounts similar to combustible cigarettes. Vaping can help you quit smoking conventional cigarettes, but push you to unknown long-term risks.
