Savas Sarıkaya, safak Sahin, Fatih Altunkas, Kayıhan Karaman.

Background: Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a main cause of cardiovascular mortality in developed countries. Obesity-related impairment of the cardiovascular system may be exist even at the young age, and progress asymptotical for decades before clinical manifestations present in. Death may be sudden in obese individuals with or with- out arrhythmias Heart rate turbulence (HRT) and Heart rate variability (HRV) both of which reflects autonomic dysfunction is a proven non-invasive electrocardiographic predictor of cardiac death.

Aims & Objectives: To evaluate autonomic function with Heart rate turbulence (HRT) and Heart rate variability (HRV) in young obese patients without comorbidities.

Materials and Methods: 60 young patients with age ≤35 of body mass index (BMI) ≥30 (average 34.12 ± 2.59) and 40 young healthy patients with ≤35 of BMI

Key words: Obesity; Autonomic Dysfunction; Arrhythmias; Young
