Nicotine Addiction treatment realizes telemedicine and digital health


As a physician, I realize the importance of smoking cessation as smoking is a risk factor in various diseases.
Diseases caused by smoking include many cancers such as nasal and sinus cancer, oral and pharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer, esophageal cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer, cervical cancer, and bladder cancer. In addition to cancer, there are many other diseases and health effects such as stroke, nicotine dependence, periodontal disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial pneumonia, decreased respiratory function, tuberculosis (death), ischemic heart disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral atherosclerosis, the onset of type 2 diabetes, premature birth, low birth weight and fetal growth retardation.
Especially in respiratory medicine, it is routine to recommend smoking cessation because smoking is a cause of COPD, lung cancer, and interstitial pneumonia. In recent years, the number of facilities that offer smoking cessation outpatient clinics has increased, and many patients at our hospital are also receiving smoking cessation outpatient clinics. With insurance coverage, it was a significant opportunity for patients to get out of the habit of quitting smoking and maintain good health in just five visits.

遠隔医療、デジタルヘルスを実現した禁煙治療


医師として診療にあたっていると、様々な疾患において喫煙がリスクファクターになっており、禁煙の重要性を実感します。
喫煙が原因となる病気には、鼻腔・副鼻腔がん、口腔・咽頭がん、喉頭がん、食道がん、肺がん、肝臓がん、胃がん、膵臓がん、子宮頸がん、膀胱がんといった多くのがんや、がん以外にも脳卒中、ニコチン依存症、歯周病、慢性閉塞性肺疾患(COPD)、間質性肺炎、呼吸機能低下、結核(死亡)、虚血性心疾患、腹部大動脈瘤、末梢性の動脈硬化、2型糖尿病の発症、早産、低出生体重・胎児発育遅延 など多くの病気や健康へ影響がみられます。
特に呼吸器内科の診療においては、COPDや肺がん、間質性肺炎の原因として喫煙があげられるため、禁煙を勧めることは日常的です。近年、禁煙外来を行う施設が増え、当院でも多数の患者さんが禁煙外来を受診しています。保険が適用され、5回の診療で禁煙習慣から抜け出し、健康維持に努めることができる大切な機会となっていました。
