For this week, I chose to do my discussion on the presentation presented by Selenia Lopez. The title of her presentation was “Pharmacologic and NonPharmacologic Smoking Cessation Methods”. The main objective of her research was to review both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic smoking cessation methods, the success rate, mechanism of action and the cost and understand the hazard of smoking and the benefits of quitting. She has also discussed the difficulties faced by an individual when they stop smoking and what makes it so hard to stop.

Ultimately, the results showed a significant lower risk-adjusted in-hospital mortality rates in smokers verse non-smokers. There are some points of disagreements from what the evidence suggested. Research also suggested that the association of smoking with lower mortality rates were in that of younger age groups. One could argue that without the exact same age groups and almost identical DNA, it is not this evidence is not a good determination whether smokers truly have a lower in-hospital mortality rate than non-smokers. This evidence does not change my views on smoking and the harmful effects it can place on ones’ health. I believe this study could expand its research comparing pathophysiological association and differences amongst STEMI patients who smoke compared with those who do not to establish conclusive results in the future.

There are clear benefits to conducting trials in countries which are still developing. These include exchange of information among medical organizations globally and answering questions about the safety and efficacy of drugs that are of interest throughout the world, but at the same time, the globalization of clinical trials raises ethical concerns. Regulatory bodies are often structured to monitor the quality of clinical trial data and the safety of drugs and devices in their domestic markets. They have limited information on many aspects of research conducted outside their jurisdictions or countries, including the sites, investigators, and participants and the quality of trial data.
The combined sample of CMB and Sham, 65% of males was 16.57 (SD = 1.24) years old and smoked 11.72 (SD = 6.55) cigarettes per day (Kong et al., 2015, p. 4).
