Forty smokers--half of whom smoked light cigarettes (8 mg tar, 0.6 mg nicotine, and 9 mg CO) and half of whom smoked regular cigarettes (12 mg tar, 0.9 mg nicotine, and 12 mg CO)--had similarly, and significantly, reduced CFVR values, compared with 22 healthy nonsmokers.
Similar decreases in CFVR after smoking were seen in light (2.68 to 2.05) and regular cigarette smokers (2.65 to 2.18).
They measured the coronary flow velocity reserve (CFVR) of men given various types of hot drinks.
