Presentation at the 2019 Annual SRNT meeting

Presentation at the 2019 Annual SRNT meeting, February 20-23, 2019 in San Francisco: ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE USE AND MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION AMONG ADULTS IN THE UNITED STATES POPULATION ASSESSMENT OF TOBACCO AND HEALTH (PATH) STUDY Analysis using multivariable logistic regression adjusted for cigarette smoking, demographic and clinical variables showed:

“Every day (adjusted odds ratio 2.29, 95% CI: 1.25, 4.22) and some day (1.91, 95% CI: 1.08, 3.38) e-cigarette use were independently associated with increased odds of having had a myocardial infarction with a significant dose-response (P < 0.0005), controlling for conventional cigarette smoking and demographic and clinical risk factors in a cross-sectional analysis of Wave 1. Odds of having had a myocardial infarction among current dual user is 6.64 compared with a never smoker who never used e-cigarettes. Having had a myocardial infarction at Wave 1 did not predict e-cigarette use at Wave 2 (p>0.62), suggesting that reverse causality cannot explain the cross-sectional association between e-cigarette use and myocardial infarction observed at Wave 1.”
