INTRODUCTION Serum cotinine is a sensitive and specific biomarker for tobacco exposure including second-hand smoke exposure (SHS). We sought to examine whether SHS is associated with heart failure (HF) among non-hospitalized adults. METHODS This analysis included 11 219 non-smokers (age 48.4 ± 20.5 years, 55.9% women, 70.5% whites) from the United States Third National Health and Nutrition Examination (NHANES) years 1988-1994. SHS was defined as serum cotinine ≥1 ng/mL. To assess dose…

Association of household secondhand smoke exposure and mortality risk in patients with heart failure

TLDR
Household SHS exposure was associated with increased mortality risk in heart failure patients, and Cox proportional-hazards models were used to assess the association.

Vital signs: nonsmokers' exposure to secondhand smoke --- United States, 1999-2008.

TLDR
Secondhand smoke exposure has declined in the United States, but 88 million nonsmokers aged ≥3 years are still exposed, progress in reducing exposure has slowed, and disparities in exposure persist, with children being among the most exposed.

Accuracy of Self-Reported Smoking and Secondhand Smoke Exposure in the US Workforce: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys

TLDR
Workers accurately reported their smoking status and workplace-home SHS exposures, but substantial numbers reporting “no exposures” had detectable levels of cotinine in their blood, indicating exposure to SHS.

Secondhand smoke exposure and quality of life in patients with heart failure.

TLDR
Even low levels of SHS are associated with lower scores in several aspects of HRQOL, and Physicians should advise patients with heart failure and their families to avoid SHS exposure.

Association between secondhand smoke exposure and hypertension: nearly as large as smoking.

TLDR
Current evidence regarding the association between secondhand smoke exposure and hypertension as well as exploration of the links between SHSE and hypertensive end-organ damage are focused on.

Exposure to secondhand smoke and attitudes toward smoke-free workplaces among employed U.S. adults: findings from the National Adult Tobacco Survey.

TLDR
Prevalence of exposure was higher among males, those aged 18-44 years, non-Hispanic Blacks, Hispanics, and non- Hispanic American Indians/Alaska natives compared toNon-Hispanic Whites, those with less education and income, those in the western United States, and those with no smoke-free workplace policy.
