  • Abstract Context: Waterpipe tobacco smoking (WTS) has gained popularity, but its physiologic effects have not been extensively studied: rather, studies have focused on WTS’s chronic effects or have evaluated limited respiratory/cardiac parameters. Objective: We sought to characterize in a more detailed manner the acute effects of WTS on lung function and exercise capacity. Method: We recruited 24 healthy WTS males. We used a pilot single-group pre-test (abstained from WTS for ≥48 h) post-test… CONTINUE READING
