This study aimed to investigate the association between respiratory mechanics and autonomic modulation in morbidly obese patients. We evaluated 10 morbidly obese subjects (BMI=52.9±11.2kg/m(2)), aged 23-58 years. Assessment of respiratory mechanics was done by the forced oscillation technique (FOT), and cardiovascular autonomic function was recorded by(More)
BACKGROUND Morbid obesity is directly related to deterioration in cardiorespiratory capacity, including changes in cardiovascular autonomic modulation. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to assess the cardiovascular autonomic function in morbidly obese individuals. METHODS Cross-sectional study, including two groups of participants: Group I, composed by 50(More)
