AbstractBackground: The hematological values can change during and after vigorous exercise, which can vary according to gender, age, environment or nutrition. The present study was conducted to assess High intensity exercise induced changes of hematological profile in sedentary post-pubertal boys and girls.
Materials & Methods: The present study 50 sedentary school going post-pubertal boys (n=25) and girls (n=25) belonging to the age group of 15–17 years were included in the study. Estimation of hematological parameters RBC count, hematocrit, Hb concentration, were estimated. Statistical analysis Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS, v 20.0; Chicago, IL) was used for the statistical analysis of the data. The level of significance was set at P < 0.05.
Results: BMI of the subjects of boys having significantly (P < 0.05) higher value as compared to girls. Resting heart rate was significantly (P < 0.001) higher in girls. Blood pressure, mean running time to exhaustion and average distance covered during treadmill running did not show any inter-group variation. Pre- and post-exercise hematocrit and Hb concentration were significantly higher in post-pubertal boys (P < 0.001). Pre- and post-exercise RBC count did not differ significantly between the groups. RBC count, Hb and hematocrit also did not change significantly following exercise and no inter-group difference in percentage change was observed for these variables. White blood cell count increased significantly in both the groups following exercise (P < 0.001). However, there was no significant intergroup difference in pre- and post-exercise value as well as magnitude of percentage change in White blood cell count following exercise.
Conclusion: The present study concluded that Pre and post-exercise hematocrit and Hb concentration were significantly higher in post-pubertal boy. Pre- and post-exercise RBC count, White blood cell count increased significantly in both the groups following exercise but did not differ significantly between the genders
