  Purpose

Title: The acute effect of narghile smoking on endothelial Function, and exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and pulmonary function tests in healthy volunteers.

Objectives: To evaluate the acute effect of one cession of narghile smoking on endothelial Function, airway inflammation as assessed by exhaled breath condensate (EBC) in healthy volunteers.

Design: Prospective study evaluating these parameters before and after 30 minutes of Narghile smoking. The changes in inflammatory parameters pre and post smoking will be evaluated blindly.

Sample size: 50 participants Participant selection: Adults subjects who smoke Narghile . Intervention: Each subject will undergo evaluation including a respiratory questionnaire, endothelial Function , pulmonary function tests , exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and carboxy- hemoglobin levels . All measurements will be evaluated before and after one cession of 30 minutes narghile smoking.


Condition Intervention
Healthy Other: Smoking Narghile for 30 min

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • PRE - Endothelial Function as assessed by EndoPAT2000 [ Time Frame: baseline (before smoking narghile) ]
    as assessed by EndoPAT2000. a pulse-oxymeter that asseses the endothelial function

  • POST - Endothelial Function as assessed by EndoPAT2000 [ Time Frame: after 30 minutes of smoking narghile ]
    as assessed by EndoPAT2000. a pulse-oxymeter that asseses the endothelial function


Secondary Outcome Measures:
