Overweight and obesity are the fifth leading risk for global deaths. Obesity increases adverse cardiac events in many ways.Increased blood pressure, heart rate and rate pressure product (Double product) can affect the cardiovascular system in numerous ways. They can determine MVO2 and are thought to act as risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. With this background this study was carried out to find the impact of obesity on blood pressure, heart rate and double product.In this comparative cross-sectional study, 150 obese males (BMI>23) and 150 non-obese males (BMI<22.9) in the age group of 18-28 years were selected from the general population of Dibrugarh randomly. The obese individuals were divided into two groups according to BMI. BMI, Heart-rate and blood pressure was recorded and rate pressure product calculated.
