Hookah and Cigarette Smoking: Two Sides of the Same Coin

J Nat Sci Med. 2020 Jan 1;3(1):1-2

Journal of Nature and Science of Medicine

“Hookah,” which is also known as “Narghileh,” “Maassel,”

or “Shisha,” is a form of waterpipe smoking. Hookah is

composed of a tobacco bowl known as the head where tobacco

(that is processed and flavored) is placed, a body, a water bowl,

a hose, and a mouthpiece.[1] Charcoal is positioned on the top

of the head that contains tobacco. When the smoker inhales

through the hose, the air is drawn into and around the charcoal.

The generated heated air passes through heated tobacco to

produce the mainstream smoke aerosol. This smoke aerosol

passes through the water bowl producing bubbles and goes

through the hose to the smoker. The average hookah smoking

session consists of 171 inhalations (each approximately 0.5 L)

of 2.6 s duration at a frequency of 2.8 inhalations/min.[
