Vaping Affects Lung Function – Covid 19

Health experts say smokers and vapers not only have a higher risk of suffering the effects of coronavirus but also spreading it to others. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that impairs breathing, so smoking may increase the risk of Coronavirus complications.

Vaping Affects Lung Function Among People?

Vaping is no different from Smoking. Vaping or e-cigarettes are mostly common among people. While there are not a lot of analysis about the long term effect of e-cigarettes due them being relatively new, researches do know that these contents contain a large amount of nicotine which if swallowed can cause serious damage to the body such as lungs. Also studies show that vaping can cause COPD, asthma and lung cancer which is why health experts strongly recommend a stronger regulation against vaping especially among the youth. The Daily Sabah comments that it only takes 20 minutes for the heart to return to its normal resting rate and it
takes 72 hours for healthy cells to be replaced so with quitting vaping and smoking you can regain normal blood pressure and blood circulation and healthy lungs.

E-cigarettes are still relatively new, and researchers need to conduct more analysis over a more extended period to know what the long-term effects may be. What they do know is that these products contain high concentrations of nicotine, which if swallowed, can be poisonous and cause side effects such as seizures in lungs mainly in the yound adults and teens.

A recent study in the journal Cancer Prevention Research, found that just one month of vaping altered the lungs of people who had never vaped before. The research team discovered that the lungs of people in the vaping group did see some small changes in inflammation over the course of four weeks.

Coronavirus risk increased by Smoking

Cigarettes weaken the immune system and are the cause of other health issues, such as heart diseases, high blood pressure and respiratory difficulties. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that impairs breathing, so smoking may increase the risk of Coronavirus complications.
 
Are Smokers More Susceptible to Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
As a pandemic, Coronavirus, has serious effect on lungs so it is obvious that the group of people who are in danger more, are the smokers because smoking weakens the lungs. Based on UK professor, Christopher Whitty’s research and reports, Smoker are more likely to be infected by the coronavirus because of their weak immune system due to smoking.
WHO reports that 52.1% of Chinese men and 2.7% of Chinese women are smokers and that could be the reason for a higher number of men that are diagnosed with COVID-19 compared to women. Russel Bahr also comments on this matter, based on his report, long-term smokers have a higher chance to be diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary or COPD which makes them more susceptible to infection. Dr. Sanjay Agrawal also says that because low defence, smoker are susceptible to both viral and bacterial infections; with that being said, Coronavirus is more dangerous for heavy smokers who have weaker immune system, Dingwall told The Sun
Online.

How to manage anxiety about Coronavirus that turns in to panic?

With the spread of Coronavirus many have found their daily lives to be challenging. Keeping your mental health stable and healthy in situations like this is important. Serious issues like the Coronavirus can cause people to feel anxious and unsafe about everything that is happening and sometimes the anxiety and stress turns in to panic. Shaking, nausea, unusual heartbeats, dizziness and difficulty breathing could be because of panic attacks. Although panic attacks can be scary and uncomfortable, it is important to remember that they can be controlled or avoided.
 
To manage a panic attack:
  1. Be aware of the fact that you are panicking and as scary as it is, it is not dangerous.
  2. It takes time for you to calm down, approximately 15-30 minutes.
  3. Take deep breaths through your nose and mouth.
  4. Change your focus to something other than the panic attack.
Panic attacks are sudden and can happen to anyone so it is important that we train our body to keep
control in stressful and unbearable situations. To prevent panic attacks from happening:
 
  1. Take deep and long breaths everyday as exercise.
  2. Exercise to stay healthy both mentally and physically.
  3. To maintain a stable blood sugar level , eat proper meals.
  4. Avoid using alcohol, smoking and caffeine.
  5. Keep thinking positively and optimistically

Keep in mind that it is best to seek professional help if the symptoms lasted for a long time.
