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.
