Respiratory function in children

Children whose mothers smoked while they were in utero, whose mothers had high blood pressure during the pregnancy, or who have a relative who suffers from asthma are at increased risk of respiratory problems. We have known for some time that newborns exposed to smoke are more likely
to suffer respiratory problems, but this study shows that material smoking may delay the development of the infant’s respiratory system. (Lancet 348:1060- 1064, October 19, 1996) Copyright 1996 Phylis Austin
