Are you considering making the switch from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes? If so, this blog post is for you! We’ve explored the latest research on long-term use of e-cigarettes and its potential effects on your blood vessels. Keep reading to learn more about how vaping might impact your health.
Introduction to E-Cigarette Use and Blood Vessel Function
Introduction to E-Cigarette Use and Blood Vessel Function: A Recent Study Reveals Link Between Long-Term Vaping and Smoking and Impaired Blood Vessel Function
A recent study has revealed a link between long-term use of e-cigarettes and impaired blood vessel function. A team of researchers led by Matthew L. Springer at the University of California, San Francisco, found that both cigarette smokers and e-cigarette users had impaired blood vessel function and increased, but different, signs of inflammation. They analyzed the effects of short-term e-cigarette use in healthy smokers and chronic exposure to e-cigarette aerosols in animal models, finding that both resulted in marked impairment of endothelial function and an increase in arterial stiffness. Additionally, acrolein, a compound found in e-cigarettes, produces vascular oxidative stress and platelet activation, both of which are risk factors for thrombotic vascular events.
Furthermore, the study found that e-cigarette users are five times more likely to test positive for COVID-19 than those who do not use tobacco products. Analysis of blood samples from healthy volunteers with no history of cigarette or e-cigarette use after a single episode of vaping showed reduced blood flow. The results suggest that prolonged vaping or smoking can cause changes in the blood that affect endothelial function and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Study: Vaping and Smoking Impair FMD
Study Finds Vaping and Smoking Both Impair Flow-Mediated Dilatation (FMD) and Increase Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
Vaping and Blood Vessel Function in Rats
“Rats Exposed to Vaping Show Impaired Blood Vessel Function”
According to a recent study, rats exposed to aerosols from vaping products show an acute impairment of endothelial function, similar to the effects of cigarette smoke on blood vessels. This finding joins a growing body of evidence suggesting that long-term use of e-cigarettes can significantly impair the function of the body’s blood vessels, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
E-Cigarettes Increase Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
Long-Term Use of E-Cigarettes Increases Risk of Cardiovascular Disease, Studies Show
Recent studies have demonstrated that long-term use of e-cigarettes can impair blood vessel function and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Dual use of cigarettes and e-cigarettes was associated with a significantly increased risk of CVD compared with nonuse. In addition, long-term use of vaping products was found to cause increased hyperlipidemia, sympathetic dominance, endothelial dysfunction, DNA damage, and macrophage activation. A study published in the journal ATVB found that airway irritation from smoking or vaping appeared to be the source of vascular damage. Furthermore, a human study conducted by researchers revealed that chronic e-cigarette users had impaired blood vessel function, which may put them at an increased risk for heart disease. Another study showed that chemicals in cigarette smoke cause the cells that line blood vessels to become damaged, leading to CVD. The findings suggest that long-term use of vaping products can significantly impair the body’s blood vessel functioning and increase the risk for cardiovascular disease.
Single Episode of Vaping Causes Reduced Blood Flow
Single Episode of Vaping Causes Reduced Blood Flow and Impairs Endothelial Function, Penn Study Reveals
A new study from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine has found that a single instance of vaping can cause reduced blood flow and impaired endothelial function in the femoral artery. Researchers discovered that just one use of an electronic cigarette resulted in increased heart rates and caused the arteries to stiffen, as well as a reduction in the inner lining of the arteries. This can put users at risk for heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular conditions. Healthy young people showed signs of impaired blood vessel function after just a few puffs of an electronic cigarette, even without nicotine. The study also found that long-term use of e-cigarettes impairs blood vessel function and increases the risk for cardiovascular disease. E-cigarette aerosols containing nicotine and acrolein have been linked to further vascular damage and reduced neutrophilic ROS production which decreases NET formation.

Changes in Blood Affect Endothelial Function
Changes in Blood Affecting Endothelial Function Linked to Long-Term Vaping and Smoking Use
Recent studies have shown that long-term use of e-cigarettes can significantly impair the body’s blood vessel functioning, increasing a person’s risk for cardiovascular disease. The analysis found that prolonged vaping and cigarette smoking both cause changes in the blood that affect endothelial function, reducing nitric oxide (NO) release and impairing FMD. In addition, e-cig exposure activates and increases expression of NADPH oxidase, disrupting the activation and coupling of eNOS, creating a vicious cycle of impaired endothelial function. A single episode of vaping has also been found to cause reduced blood flow and impaired endothelial function in humans. Therefore, it is clear that long-term use of vaping products can have harmful effects on the body’s vascular system.
Prolonged Vaping and Smoking Cause Changes in Blood
Prolonged Vaping and Smoking Both Cause Changes in the Blood that Affect Endothelial Function
A new study has found that prolonged vaping and smoking both cause changes in the blood that affect endothelial function. Analysis of the data showed that chronic vaping and smoking both impair FMD and cause changes in the blood that inhibit endothelial NO release. Additionally, rats exposed to e-cigarette vapor showed impaired blood vessel function, further indicating the potential risks associated with long-term use of electronic cigarettes. The research also showed that a single episode of vaping resulted in reduced blood flow and impaired endothelial function in the larger arteries. These findings suggest that long-term use of e-cigarettes could significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, even if levels of toxins and carcinogens are lower compared to tobacco smokers.
