STATE TOBACCO CONTROL PROGRAM
(Tuesday, October 28, 2:30 PM EST)

New York residents who smoke are feeling the effects of the tobacco reduction strategies imposed by the New York Department of Health Tobacco Control Program (DOH-TCP). In a recent survey, researchers from North Shore-LIJ Center for Tobacco Control asked 277 New York residents attending a smoking cessation program why they intended to quit smoking. Of the participants, 33 percent of women and 8 percent of men cited greater social pressure to quit smoking, while 42 percent of women and 26 percent of men wanted to quit due to odor from tobacco use. Thirty percent of men and 17 percent of women reported wanting to quit because of pressure from their doctor, while 29 percent of men and 34 percent of women are quitting due to high cigarette prices. Furthermore, 16 percent of men and 11 percent of women cited quitting because there are fewer places where smoking is still permitted. Researchers conclude that the strategies imposed by the DOH-TCP, including increasing cigarette taxes, banning smoking at work, and educating health-care providers and the public about tobacco dependence, are having an impact on smokers in New York.

Researchers from the University of Kansas, Kansas City, MO, compared 700 critically ill patients 1 year prior to remote telemonitoring implementation with 4,592 critically ill patients 2 years after telemonitoring implementation. They evaluated the severity-adjusted ICU and hospital length of stay (LOS) and ICU and hospital mortality. Results showed that remote teleintensivist care correlated with an improvement of severity-adjusted ICU and hospital LOS. Resu
