This study investigated a new tobacco‐free smoking substitute intended to provide not only the nicotine but also, to some extent, the manipulative component of the smoking act. Nicotine uptake and cardiovascular and subjective effects of nicotine‐containing toothpicks (4 mg) were compared with those of nicotine chewing gum (4 mg). After the two products were chewed for 5 minutes, the nicotine uptake from the toothpick was twofold that of the gum. However, comparing the total nicotine deliveries… Expand
Risk-Benefit Assessment of Nicotine Preparations in Smoking Cessation
Decisions on the use of nicotine preparations in pregnancy, coronary disease, etc., must consider not only the medical status of patients but also their likelihood of stopping smoking with and without the help of nicotine replacement. Expand
Effects of nicotine on peripheral cutaneous blood flow and skin temperature.

Nicotine pharmacokinetics of electronic cigarettes: A review of the literature.
How the progression of e-cigarette design, development, and user familiarity has allowed increases in nicotine availability to the user will be discussed, in the context of how much and how rapidly nicotine is delivered during acute-use periods. Expand
Abuse Potential of Nicotine Replacement Therapies
It can be concluded that most of the nicotine replacement therapies have lower abuse liability than tobacco cigarettes and those with a slower onset are less likely to be abused. Expand

Nicotine gum: Chew rate, subjective effects and plasma nicotine
It is suggested that rate of chewing nicotine gum can make a difference in the amount of nicotine extracted from the gum; however, compensatory changes in chew rate may attenuate attempts to systematically vary nicotine dose in this manner. Expand

Pulse transit time as an indicator of arterial blood pressure.
The relationship between pulse-arrival times and diastolic blood pressure was measured in 10 anesthetized dogs and it was found that pulse-transit time was found to increase nearly linearly with blood pressure, and pulse-wave velocity increased typically by slightly less than six percent. Expand
