Transcript of Chronic Conditions - Excessive Tobacco Use

Tobacco Use

What is excessive tobacco exposure?
How is it defined?
In the Western world:
Tobacco responsible for the most preventable deaths
(Healey 2011)

In Australia:
2010 - 16.4% of males and 13.9% of females >14 years daily smokers
(AIHW 2011)
Tobacco basics:
No tobacco exposure is safe
(Australian Drug Foundation 2012)

Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) remains as a serious issue
(Vineis et al. 2007)
What is in a cigarette?
What level of tobacco exposure is safe?
What defines excessive tobacco use?
Very low to Low nicotine dependency:
First cigarette comes within 30 minutes of waking
>10 cigarettes smoked a day
Have a history of withdrawal
(Lifescripts 2012)

Moderate to high nicotine dependency:
All of the above, plus
First cigarette of day most important of the day
>25 cigarettes smoked a day
(Lifescripts 2012)
What defines nicotine dependence and a high dependence?
Tobacco use:
Defined by nicotine dependence
(Lifescripts 2012)
Nicotine dependence cannot be defined by a single measure - dependence is different for everyone
(Fidler et al. 2011)
There are over 4000 chemicals in cigarettes, 60 carcinogenic
Three main chemicals:
Carbon monoxide
(Australian Drug Foundation 2012)
In Australia:
Tobacco is responsible for 7.8% of the burden of disease
2004-2005 - Cost of tobacco approximately $AU 12.0 billion
(AIHW 2011)
Tobacco basics:
How is excessive tobacco use measured?
To which chronic conditions is excessive tobacco use related?
Many chronic conditions have been shown by studies to be linked to tobacco usage
Both active and passive/ETS smoking responsible
(Vineis et al. 2007)
Chronic conditions:
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
(Baena-Cagnani et al. 2009)
Respiratory conditions:
(AIHW 2012)
Cardiovascular disease
Coronary heart disease
Ischemic stroke
Hemorragic stroke (Cerebrovascular disease)
Increased blood pressure
(Risk Factors for Coronary
Heart Disease 2011)
(Appel and Llinlas 2009)
Cardiovascular conditions:
Smoking increases risk of developing osteoporosis
(Clinical Review: Osteoporosis 2012)

Risk increased with alcohol consumption
(Lin et al. 2012)

Many studies have found links between tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption
(Henemyre et al. 2003)
Osteoporosis and links:
What role might a physio-
therapist have in the management of tobacco use?
What strategies exist for the management of excessive tobacco use? What is the evidence for these strategies?
Strategies for Management of Tobacco Use:
Strategies for Management of Tobacco Use:
Smoke free policies decrease ETS (second hand smoking)
(Pierce, Leon 2008)
South Australia Law 31 May 2007
$200 fine
(Tobacco in Australia 2012)
Strategies for Management of Tobacco Use:
Media campaigns reduce youth taking up smoking
(Brinn et al. 1998)
Longer education decreases smoking
(Zhu et al. 1996)
Strategies for Management of Tobacco Use:
Where in the continuum of care is assessment of the risk factor appropriate?
The Continuum of care relates to the assessment of tobacco use over a person’s whole life and the effect it has on the development of chronic disease.
Continuum of Care:
Higher prevalence of common diseases such as COPD
(Yanbaeva et al. 2007)
smoking 1 to 4 cigarettes per day increased chances of dying from specified smoking related diseases
(Bjartveit and Tverdal 2005)
Even light smoking increases the risk of chronic conditions
Adolescent tobacco use:
Adult long life tobacco users:
Starting smoking before 21 makes it harder to quit
(Healey 2006)
Long term smokers start in their teenage years and are addicted to nicotine
(Healey 2006)
Teenagers are quite impressionable, so importance of continuum of care is evident here
Teen smokers:
Leads to increased risk of lung cancer, stroke and heart disease
(WHO 2012)
Decreased lung capacity
Decreased rate of lung growth
Experience shortness of breath reduced physical fitness
(Tobacco in Australia 2011)
Alters the heart development
Increased risk of developing chronic excess weight problems
Substantial delays in early neurological development
(Sowan and Stember 2000)
Tobacco use during pregnancy:
What resources exist which help support the management of the risks associated with excessive tobacco exposure?
Cancer Council and the Heart Foundation
Aims to create a society free from the harm caused by tobacco
(Quit SA 2012)
Quit SA:
QuitSA Website/Twitter/ Facebook:
Increase the price of tobacco products
(Tobacco in Australia 2012)
Increased exposure to anti-tobacco advertisement
Pro-tobacco advertising increases youth usage
(Brownson and Wegner 2010)
Interactive Seminars:
24 hour free telephone counseling service
For the Younger Generation:
Kick It:
Quitting in the workplace

National President of the Australian Physiotherapy Association states:

“As front-line health professionals physiotherapists are acutely aware of the importance of smoking cessation and reducing exposure to tobacco smoke. Physiotherapists often treat conditions that stem from the effects of smoking, such as emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer”
