abstract
In this thesis, we will evaluate the association of metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) and other obesity phenotypes with common electrocardiographic (ECG) markers such as PR interval, P wave duration, QRS duration, and QT interval. In prior studies, MHO has shown inconsistent association with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality compared to metabolically healthy non-obese (MHNO). However, accumulating evidence suggestive of the heightened risk of CVD and mortality with MHO has raised concerns about the existence of truly benign obesity. An examination of the association of obesity phenotypes with ECG markers can give insight into the pathophysiological basis of poor outcomes associated with these phenotypes.
