Brief Summary:
In the United States, exposure to secondhand smoke accounts for greater than 35,000 deaths annually from cardiovascular disease in never-smokers. Electronic (e-) hookahs are a new category of vaping devices gaining popularity among youth. While more is known on the acute effects of active hookah smoking and the literature is emerging on active e-hookah vaping, virtually nothing is known about the acute cardiovascular effects of secondhand exposure to e-hookah aerosol. The study aims to examine the acute effects of secondhand exposure of e-hookah aerosol on endothelial and vascular function. Eligible volunteers will be invited to participate in a total of 3 study visits (2-3 hours each): e-hookah aerosol exposure, charcoal-heated hookah smoke exposure (both delivered by a hookah smoking/vaping machine) and smoke-free room air. Non-invasive blood pressure and blood flow measurements will be taken before and after the exposure sessions.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Peripheral Endothelial Function
Brachial artery flow-mediated dilation will be used to measure endothelial function
Other: e-hookah aerosol
Exposure to secondhand aerosol delivered by an e-hookah vaping machine for 60 mins

Other: clean air
Exposure to clean air for 60 mins.

Other: Charcoal-heated hookah smoke
Exposure to secondhand smoke delivered by a hookah vaping machine for 60 mins

Experimental: Central Arterial Stiffness
Pulse wave velocity will be used to measure arterial stiffness.
Other: e-hookah aerosol
Exposure to secondhand aerosol delivered by an e-hookah vaping machine for 60 mins

Other: clean air
Exposure to clean air for 60 mins.

Other: Charcoal-heated hookah smoke
Exposure to secondhand smoke delivered by a hookah vaping machine for 60 mins




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Endothelial function [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    Change in Flow-Mediated Dilation, percent change pre to post exposure

  2. Arterial stiffness [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    change in pulse wave velocity, m/s-1 pre to post exposure
