    Heart Failure Due to Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics are alarming. More than one-third of adults in the United States are obese.

If left untreated, OHS can destroy quality of life and cause heart failure. More from Vivien Williams. [TRT 2:05]
