4 Passive smoking is also known as Secondhand smoke or ETS Environmental Tobacco Smoke.

5 It is the exposure of non-smokers to cigarette, cigar, or pipe smoke in an indoor environment

6 Two Types of Secondhand Smoke
Mainstream smoke is exhaled by the smoker from the cigarette Side-stream smoke is the smoke emitted directly into the environment from burning tip of the cigarette Three times more benzopyrene Five times more carbon monoxide Fifty times more ammonia

7 A lighted cigarette is a “prolific chemical factory” that produces thousands of chemicals

8 Side-stream smoke contains three times as much carbon monoxide and benzopyrene and higher amounts of tar, nicotine, ammonia and nitrosamines. Side-stream smoke is more toxic but is diluted into the total volume of air within the room.

9 Non-smokers passively smoke both mainstream and side-stream smoke (See page 48 of your Personal Plan Booklet) The Plan To Stop Smoking Healthy adults complain of eye irritation, cough, headache, and nasal symptoms

10 People with respiratory allergies and asthmatics may suffer a worsening of their condition

13 Children Approximately 70 percent of children in US live in homes with at least one adult smoker Parental smoking is associated with increased episodes of bronchitis and pneumonia, asthma and wheezing Maternal smoking during first 7 years of child’s life results in reduction of lung function

14 13% of sudden infant death syndrome attributable to passive smoking

15 Many public health concerns support the need for a smoke-free workplace

16 Work Place Exposure Number of smokers, number and type of cigarettes burned, rate of smoking, room size, and ventilation affect quantity of smoke Smoke exposure is 4 times greater than in the home environment Non-smokers have least control over air quality Typical indoor ventilation is inadequate to remove tobacco smoke Non-smokers experience longer recoveries from respiratory illnesses
