Electronic cigarette as a source of aerosols inhaled by users and by-standers

Tomasz Robert Sosnowski


Electronic cigarette (EC) and aerosol released from this device were analyzed based on the measurements of droplet size distribution and internal pressure drop of the EC. Based on experimentally determined parameters of EC aerosol, the deposition in the respiratory system was calculated using selected models published in the literature. The effect of hygroscopic growth of droplets inside the respiratory tract was also considered. The results allowed to estimate the fractions of deposited and exhaled aerosol. These data lies the ground for discussion of the ‘active’ and ‘passive’ vaping (i.e. the inhalation of EC mist) problem. Work was done within the project no. 2014/13/B/ST8/00808 funded by NCN.
