Prevalence of obesity is increasing all over the world. Obese patients are not just large but they also have multiple physiological and anatomical changes associated with obesity. These patients have multiple co morbidities associated with obesity which are independent predictors of poor outcome in the perioperative period. Obesity has its effect on bolus dosing and infusions of medications. Obesity makes these patients at higher risk for anesthesia. So it is very important for anesthesiologists to know about all these changes and how to manage these patient safely and efficiently in the perioperative period. The aim of my talk is to understand the magnitude of the problem, anatomical and physiological changes of obesity, comorbidities associated with obesity, their effect on anesthesia and their management in the perioperative period.
