Obesity as a disease causes a restrictive lung disease and is a sufficient predisposing factor for difficult ventilation of the patient in the ventilator. In addition to covid-19, the phenomenon of “hard lung” is observed as the ventilation of intubated patients is very arduous and recruitment requires a lot of effort. The combination is quite difficult as these patients oppose the ventilator. This paper aims to explore the link between obesity and mechanical ventilation in COVID-19 patients
