Vascular effects of a single bout of electronic cigarette use
My research is hoping to determine if there are any acute effects caused upon the human vasculature by electronic cigarette vapor. Volunteers for my study will be asked to visit the Cardio Vascular and Aging Laboratory here at the University of Texas for a total of 4 days. During their visit, volunteers will vape three different electronic cigarette products with a nominal amount of nicotine. Before and after their vape, I will test vascular function and stiffness utilizing valid and widely used measures; Flow Mediated Dilation and CAVI. Traditional cigarettes have been shown to negatively effect vascular function and stiffness acutely however the mechanisms remain unknown.
