Electronic Cigarettes – Cutting through the Vaporscreen

E-cigarettes are a new addition to the field of tobacco products and there is still a lot to be learned about the effects of using them, or “vaping.” Jon O. Ebbert, MD, faculty at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, recently gave a presentation  on “Electronic Cigarettes – Cutting through the Vaporscreen,” to primary care and internal medicine doctors during Medical Grand Rounds at the Mayo Clinic. To provide a primer on these new products, Dr. Ebbert’s presentation covers:

  • The mechanics of e-cigarettes
  • Current data around e-cigarette nicotine delivery
  • The known health risks of e-cigarettes
  • How smokers and non-smokers use e-cigarettes
  • Evidence regarding the efficacy of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation
