In addition to being a major contributor to chronic illnesses, obesity is associated with diseases of the cardiovascular system. When the BMI is ≥ 30kg/m 2 , there is an association with increased risk of heart failure, myocardial infarction, premature atherosclerosis, and reduced survival because of cardiovascular deaths. 1,2 In 2009, the American Heart Association scientific advisory noted that the prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD) and the associated risk factors are increased in patients with obesity. The scientific advisory was published to inform surgeons, consulting physicians, and anesthesiologists of the association with cardiac and pulmonary diseases, which may negatively impact the outcome of any noncardiac surgery. 3 The association between the degree of obesity and the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) was re-examined in 5,209 men and women in the original Framingham study.
