Women who quit smoking before 30 cut risk of tobacco-related death by 97%

Women who quit smoking before 30 cut risk of tobacco-related death by 97% according the a new study from the Lancet of more than 1 million women.  This is good news for those female teenagers who started in High School and then decide to quit early.


"Women who smoke into middle-age have three times the death rate of non-smokers and risk dying at least 10 years early, according to adefinitive study of the effects of tobacco in more than a million women in the UK.
The good news, according to the study by a team of Oxford University researchers led by Sir Richard Peto, is that giving up cigarettes before the age of 40 reduces a woman's risk of smoking-related death by 90%. Quitting by 30 reduces it by 97%."  - from the Guardian Article.

You may also have to deal with patients who have been victims of heart attacks or involved in accidents, along with infants who were born prematurely and people who may have cystic fibrosis, lung cancer or even AIDS. Respiratory Therapist Wage

Cigarette smoking causes most cases of COPD, the fourth leading cause of death in the US. RTs treat hospitalized COPD patients by administering supplemental oxygen or initiating breathing treatment. Once their condition has become stable, COPD patients often enter pulmonary rehabilitation.

There are no female smokers in my family but my older brother is a heavy smoker though. I've seen him smoke a pack of cigarette before, all in just a day. He has a family of his own now and the last time his wife was really trying to get him to quit. She even bought him an electronic cigarette to help him. He sometimes wreaks smell of cigarette when we meet up. I guess he hasn't quit yet. He is now 30 years old and if by 35 he quits, would the risk of smoke-related death be reduced at the same rate with women?

Hello Douglas! I am a nursing instructor and have a few questions about some of the terminology we use to describe adventitious breath sounds. Could I please pick your brain?
Thanks!
