Is third hand smoke determental to people with heart and lung diseases?
JA: The Cardiologist can help. To begin, do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: I have been shielding because of bronchiectasis and CKD. Two weeks ago I had a heart attack. A young member of our family had to move in with us the same day I came home from the hospital. He is going out to our indoor/outdoor room and smoking against our objections. I smell it heavily on him. Is this harmful considering my health issues?
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Cardiologist should know?
Customer: I am also under a lot of stress brought on by this young member.

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

This is called passive smoking

It is definitely bad for your heart and lungs

You must not come in contact with any person who is smoking

That will make your heart and lung disease worse

Please do let me know if you have any other question
