Abstract

Evidence now supports that active and passive cigarette smoke exposure increase the risk for disease manifestations and adverse outcomes for patients in acute and critical care settings. By understanding the effect of active and passive smoke exposure on common laboratory tests, nurses in acute and critical care settings can plan essential components of care more accurately. This article addresses the effects of active and passive smoking and cessation on common parameters of hematology, hemostasis, immunology and inflammation, and chemistry laboratory tests.
