Tabagisme passif et santé respiratoire de l'adulte: une menace bien réelle [ETS and respiratory health in adults: a real threat]
Revue Médicale Suisse
Hazards due to active smoking are known for a long time. On the other hand, the importance of the harmful effects of passive smoking are less recognized, having been shown initially mainly in the pediatric population. However, the importance of significant increased risks on various respiratory pathologies of the adult are well known today, in a Swiss society where the number of active smokers remains high, leading to a high prevalence of passive smoking exposure On the basis of recent publications and updates of various organizations, we propose a review of the history, noxious mechanisms and effects on various respiratory pathologies of the exposure to passive smoke in adults.
