Abstract:

Haematologic tests are one among many tests used widely to assess health and fitness of sports persons. Adult sports persons exhibit changes in blood parameters which differs from those of general population. The main aim of this study includes that to find out the effect of sports on haemoglobin and red blood cell count and to compare and analyze the result of female sports persons with that of female non-sports persons. 30 female sports persons, aged between 18 to 21 years and 30 female non sports persons of same age group were selected. Height, weight, pulse rate, blood pressure were recorded. Venous blood was collected and tested in Sysmex 21, Transasia cell counter for haemoglobin and red blood cell count. Results were analyzed by independent sample‘t’ test. This study revealed lower haemoglobin concentration and red blood cell count in sports persons when compared to non sports persons. Endurance sports activities over a longer period reduces the haemoglobin and red blood cell count in sports persons when compared to non sports persons which improves their sports performance.
