Obesity effects on hemodynamics and cv structure and function.
Obesity (Excessive Adipose accumulation) is associated with various comorbidities including, Type ll diabetes mellitus, hypertension, sleep disorders, cancers etc. is increasing day by day in both children and adults. It has a major impact on Cardiovascular Diseases (CD), such as Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), Heart Failure (HF) and strokes associated with low survival. It has been observed that overweight or obese people established with different CV disease including HF, CHD have a better prognosis as compared with non-obese or non-overweight people. Obesity has various adverse effects on CV structure, function and hemodynamics, which is shown in the figure. Obesity leads to increase in accumulation of adipose tissue, blood volume, LV stroke volume, cardiac output, LV enlargement which provide stress on LV wall which further leads to failure of LV by adequately/inadequately dysfunction of LV diastolic and systolic.
