Abstract Background: Tobacco cigarette smoking is a global health problem that kills millions each year. Recently, tobacco smoking using a waterpipe (WP) has become popular worldwide. However, unlike cigarettes, the cardiovascular (CV) risks associated with WP smoking are uncertain. In this study, the immediate effects of WP smoking on central and peripheral CV indices were evaluated in 53 young healthy smokers. Materials and methods: Strain-gauge plethysmography was used to measure forearm… 
Impact of waterpipe smoking on blood pressure and heart rate among adolescents: The Irbid-TRY
TLDR
The results indicate that HR and blood pressure are lower in adolescent WP smokers versus non-smokers and stepwise regression analyses showed that smoking status can predict this effect.
Acute effects of waterpipe smoking on blood pressure and heart rate: a real-life trial
TLDR
Waterpipe smoking for duration as short as 15 min has acute hemodynamic effects and significantly increases systolic BP and HR.
Cigarette smoking lowers blood pressure in adolescents: the Irbid-TRY
TLDR
It is suggested that cigarette smoking lowers CV measures in adolescents, but more studies are needed to describe the mechanism(s) for lowering CV measures and explain the relationship of adolescent smoking with adulthood CVDs.
Acute vascular effects of waterpipe smoking: Importance of physical activity and fitness status.
TLDR
Waterpipe smoking is associated with immediate changes in vascular function, which are exacerbated in individuals with low habitual physical activity and physical fitness levels in young otherwise healthy individuals.
Influence of waterpipe smoking on hematological parameters and cognitive function before and after supramaximal exercise
TLDR
Long-term waterpipe smoking resulted in significantly greater hematological indices potentially reflective of greater inflammation, indicating that long-term WP smoking may have limited impact on cognitive function via hematology changes.
The effect of habitual waterpipe tobacco smoking on pulmonary function and exercise capacity in young healthy males: A pilot study.
TLDR
Habitual waterpipe tobacco smoking in young seemingly healthy individuals is associated with a greater burden of respiratory symptoms and impaired exercise capacity.
Gender-Specific Blood Pressure and Heart Rate Differences in Adolescents Smoking Cigarettes, Waterpipes or Both
TLDR
It is indicated that cardiovascular measures are equally altered among the boys, but not the girls, smoking cigarettes, waterpipe, or both as compared to the ones never smoked.
Association of waterpipe smoking with myocardial infarction and determinants of metabolic syndrome among catheterized patients
TLDR
The study provides yet another evidence for the adverse cardiovascular effects of waterpipe smoking on a clinical level and should be underscored by health care professionals.
The association between smoking and blood pressure in men: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
The findings revealed that the adjusted blood pressure were lower in current smokers versus nonsmokers and former smokers, and no significant dose-dependent effect of current smoking on blood pressure indices except PP was observed.
Waterpipe smoking and risk of coronary artery disease
TLDR
There are consistent similarities between WPS and cigarette smoking in regard to association with CAD, the nature of the smoke produced, and the acute haemodynamic effects and inflammatory responses that follow exposure, which justify both public health and clinical interventions to reduce WPS.

The acute effects of Waterpipe smoking on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
TLDR
Smoking Waterpipe has significant effects on both the cardiovascular and respiratory system, and education plays an important role and creates awareness about the hazards of smoking practices, including Waterpipe.
Acute and chronic effects of cigarette smoking on arterial stiffness
TLDR
It is suggested that cigarette smoking have deleterious effects on cardiovascular system by stiffening arteries by measuring brachial–ankle PWV using an oscillometric method.
Effects of cigarette smoking on carotid and radial artery distensibility
TLDR
Acute cigarette smoking reduces distensibility not only in medium-sized but also in large elastic arteries, therefore causing a systemic artery stiffening.
Effect of Smoking on Arterial Stiffness and Pulse Pressure Amplification
TLDR
Higher aortic systolic blood pressure and greater arterial stiffness, in part due to reduced pulse pressure amplification and increased arterial wave reflection, suggest that the adverse hemodynamic effects have hitherto been underestimated in young chronic smokers.
Ethnic differences in arterial stiffness and wave reflections after cigarette smoking
TLDR
The hypothesis that cigarette smoking increases the pulse wave velocity (PWV), a marker of arterial stiffness, and the augmentation index (AI), a measure of wave reflection, more in Blacks than in Whites is tested.
Acute effects of smoking on radial artery compliance in humans
TLDR
Smoking causes a marked reduction in radial artery compliance, and the effect is independent of the increase in blood pressure, however, the marked increase in compliance due to ischaemia is not modified by smoking.
Short- and long-term effects of smoking on arterial wall properties in habitual smokers.
TLDR
In habitual smokers, smoking one cigarette causes short-term increases in arterial wall stiffness that might be harmful to the artery and increase the risk for plaque rupture, indicating that in acute cardiovascular events, smoking might be a more important risk than long-term effects for these acute ischemic events.
Acute toxicant exposure and cardiac autonomic dysfunction from smoking a single narghile waterpipe with tobacco and with a "healthy" tobacco-free alternative.
TLDR
The data indicate that waterpipe smoking acutely compromises cardiac autonomic function, and does so through exposure to smoke constituents other than nicotine.
The acute effects of water-pipe smoking on the cardiorespiratory system.
TLDR
This study shows that one session of WPS causes acute biologic changes that might result in marked health problems and adds to the limited evidence that WPS is harmful and supports interventions to control the continuing global spread of Wps, especially among youth.
The short-term effect of water-pipe smoking on the baroreflex control of heart rate in normotensives
TLDR
Water-pipe smoking induced a high increase in heart rate, SBP, DBP, MBP and markedly impaired BRS, which are known as risk factors in cardiovascular diseases, hence it is concluded that water-pipesmoking is not as harmless as is thought.
