NAHABEDIAN, Susana et al. Estudio multicéntrico sobre prevalencia de tabaquismo en mujeres embarazadas en 15 centros de salud de argentina. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.1, pp.28-35. ISSN 1852-236X.

Introduction: It is not known exactly the number of women who smoke during pregnancy and its estimate is difficult because many of them deny being smokers at the medical consultation. In the absence of epidemiological data in Argentina, this survey was conducted to estimate the prevalence of the tobacco smoking habit in a population of pregnant women in different health centers in Argentina. Material and methods: We performed a prospective, cross sectional, non-therapeutic, and descriptive, through an anonymous survey of pregnant women in any quarter and without age limit. The questionnaire was designed for this purpose by a group of specialists of the Pulmonary Clinic Pulmonary Section of the Argentina Association of Respiratory Medicine. Results and discussion: The prevalence of smoking habit of the total respondents was 19.8%. The data analysis, like in other publications, showed that a high percentage of pregnant keeps the smoking habit despite knowing the risks of addiction on the fetus and mother.

Keywords : Pregnancy and smoking; Smoking during pregnancy; Prevalence of smoking during pregnancy.
