A study of QRS complex in ECG in asymptomatic obese young patients
Author(s): Dr. L Shashikala and Dr. Anand KSS
Abstract: Obesity causes several haemodynamic changes such as increased blood and stroke volume, and an increase in pulmonary and left atrial pressure. These changes cause structurally altered cardiac tissue such as left atrial enlargement and remodelling, and ventricular hypertrophy. These may ultimately result in obesity-induced left ventricular diastolic and systolic dysfunction and right and left ventricular heart failure.
