Abstract

Smoking is a frequent and hazardous activity for health as it can lead to various diseases include lung cancer, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and hemolytic anemia. Hemolytic anemia with hereditary spherocytosis (HS) is known to cause an increase in mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) values. With the advancement of time, types of cigarettes can be classified into conventional and electric cigarettes. This study aims to compare the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) values between conventional and electric smokers in Kembaran District. This study uses an analytical observational design with a cross-sectional approach. The sample consists of 26 male respondents, aged 17-25 years, who are conventional smokers and electric smokers in Kembaran Sub-District, selected using purposive sampling. MCHC values were measured using a hematology analyzer and analyzed using the Mann-Whitney U test. The results of this study show a comparison of mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) values in conventional smokers and electric smokers in Kembaran District. This is evidenced by the p-value of 0.000 (p 0.05).
