Obesity has become a problem worldwide during the past few decades. The prevalence of obesity worldwide has led to an increase in the number of obese surgical patients to whom perioperative care needs to be delivered. Hence, surgeons and nurse anesthetists will care for an increasing number of obese patients in the foreseeable future and should be prepared to provide optimal management for these individuals. This poster considers preparing for and managing the obese surgical patient by explaining underlying pathophysiology, implications of nursing care, perioperative considerations, diagnosis, and various treatments. This review provides updated evidence regarding perioperative management for obese patients.
