Abstract

Current obesity classifications are as follows: overweight (BMI 25.00-29.99 kg/m2); class I obesity (BMI 30.00-34.99 kg/m2); class II obesity (BMI 35.00-39.99 kg/m2); class III obesity (BMI ≥40.00 kg/m2). Perioperative risk, as well as mortality, increases with increasing BMI. The obese patient presents unique challenges throughout the perioperative period due to changes in several organ systems.
