3 Health effects of passive smoking in children Children are more susceptible to the adverse effects of SHS than adults for several reasons. Their respiratory system is not fully mature at birth and continues to develop both immunologically and physiologically. Children have higher breathing rate and inhale more air per body volume than adults, which results in higher exposure with a similar SHS concentration. In addition, children’s liver metabolism and other clearing mechanisms are not yet fully developed, so the harmful substances remain longer in the body.

3 HEALTH EFFECTS OF PASSIVE SMOKING IN CHILDREN 27 the exposure concentration. These may give relevant information about exposure to some target organs. The most commonly measured biomarker of tobacco smoke is cotinine in serum, saliva or urine. Cotinine is a major metabolite of nicotine. Its half-life is about 20 h, so it measures only recent exposure over the last 1–3 days. As a consequence of this, it may not be good assessment method for diseases for which long-term exposure is relevant. Hair nicotine concentration has been measured in some recent studies and seems to reflect exposure over the last 2 months.

A group in Toronto found that panic symptoms could be triggered by standardized stimuli much more readily in those with unexplained symptoms and suggested a relationship between unexplained symptoms, panic attacks and hyperventilation. Although this has not been studied in asthmatics, and does not directly concern perfume scents, it provides a potential mechanistic underpinning to understand individuals with complaints of respiratory distress attributed to scents, and suggests the design of behaviorally based therapeutic strategies where pathological pulmonary disease has been excluded.
