Smoking Cessation in Surgical Patients: How to Help Your Patients Quit and Why It's Important 2018
We know that smoking is the leading cause of pulmonary and cardiovascular disease and a risk for poor outcomes in the perioperative period. Anesthesia professionals feel a responsibility to the patient to aid in smoking cessation, but often do not know the best way to initiate this discussion or to provide the best resources. In this module, we will review the health risks of smoking, the risk that are particular to the perioperative period, how to support smoking cessation as a teachable moment and review resources available to all patients. In addition, we will review the current evidence on the safety of e-cigarettes and other alternatives to conventional smoking methods.
