Tired of paying for lifestyle choices. What is typical weight of a patient who requires triple cardiac bypass surgery?
Variable. But getting heavier the last few years. We run out of table at about 500 pounds and that is a problem! We do still some normal sizes with other cause than obesity smokers hyperlipidemia diabetic bad history.
No typical. No typical weight but pts that are obese and have bmi greater than 30 tend to have coronary artery disease more often than those who dont.. This however is just one risk factor and the entire pt needs to be evaluated.
