E-cigarettes, a Way to Quit Smoking
Dr. Michael Hernandez
E-cigarettes could be seen as a step to start quitting smoking, but Michael Hernandez, Critical Care & Pulmonary Medicine Physician, at South Miami Hospital, says there are no conclusive studies that to reduce the use of conventional cigarettes might help the use of electronic ones.
"In regards to cessation, it doesn't quite succeed patients who smoke do smoke less combustible cigarettes when they're smoking e-cigarettes", he explains.
Hernandez also highlights it is unclear whether they're ingesting less nicotine or they're less addicted.
