  • Obesity is a growing worldwide problem and the prevalence of heart failure is also on the rise. Obesity itself is an independent risk factor for the development of heart failure and the case of obesity-related heart failure is thought to be multifactorial. Obesity leads to increased central and total blood volumes along with decreased systemic arterial resistance resulting in high cardiac output state related adaptations in the cardiac structure. Persistence of these hemodynamic changes… CONTINUE READING
