Feeling KOOL – Great American Smokeout

The Great American Smokeout is encouraging Americans to quit smoking today.

Doctors say the positive effects are seen almost immediately.  Heart rate variability goes up within at least 15 minutes after you stop smoking.
Blood pressure, circulation and lung function also improve.
After a year of no smoking, the risk of having a heart attack is half of that of someone who smokes.

Feeling KOOL is brought to you by Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
