  • Formaldehyde – embalming fluid

  • Hydrogen Cyanide - insecticide

  • Carbon Monoxide – car exhaust

  • Ammonia - toilet cleaner

Secondhand smoke l.jpg

SecondHand Smoke

  • The evidence on the mechanisms by which smoking causes disease indicates that there is no risk-free level of exposure to tobacco smoke.

  • Secondhand smoke exposure causes disease and premature death in children and adults who do not smoke

  • Almost 60 percent of U.S. children aged 3-11 years—or almost 22 million children—are exposed to secondhand smoke

Secondhand smoke46 l.jpg

SecondHand Smoke

  • Children exposed to secondhand smoke are at an increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), acute respiratory infections, ear problems, and more severe asthma.

  • Smoking by parents causes respiratory symptoms and slows lung growth in their children.

    • Secondhand smoke exposure can cause children who already have asthma to experience more frequent and severe attacks.

Best idea to pass on to parents who use tobacco l.jpg

Best Idea to Pass on To Parents Who Use Tobacco

Eliminating smoking in indoor spaces fully protects nonsmokers from exposure to secondhand smoke. Separating smokers from nonsmokers, cleaning the air, and ventilating buildings cannot eliminate exposures of nonsmokers to secondhand smoke.

How much does it cost to use tobacco l.jpg

How much does it cost to use tobacco?

  • $5.00 per pack x one pack per day for 7 days = $35.00 per week

  • $35.00 per week x 4 weeks a month = $140.00 per month

  • $140.00 per month x 12 months a year = $1680.00 per year

  • More than one pack? Do the math!!!

Suggestions for the busy clinic l.jpg

Suggestions for the Busy Clinic

  • Who will be responsible for the first question about tobacco use?

  • Who will discuss the options available to the patient for treatment?

  • Who will be responsible for completion and sending the referral form for the next step of treatment?

  • Who will handle the reports on referrals once they are received?
