Abstract
Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) are a relatively new alternative to conventional cigarettes and the prevalence of use is increasing amongst smokers worldwide. This raises new questions for example on the potential impact of e-cigarette use on indoor air quality and bystander exposures; evidence on this topic is still emerging. To that end, the aim of this study was to investigate the impact of different factors on the dispersion of exhaled e-cigarette particles at a bystander’s position, namely vaping topography, distance from bystander and room ventilation rate, following use of a commercial e-cigarette.
