The Effect of Swim, Skin and Scuba Diving at Different Depths on Serum Fibrinogen and Platelet of Male Divers
Abstract:   (1154 Views)
Introduction: Aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of swim, skin and scuba diving at different depths on serum fibrinogen and platelet of male divers.
Methods: In this semi-experimental study, eight divers of Red Crescent and Rescue society of Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-ahmad province participated voluntarily. All subjects in waters of Qeshm Sea, on the first day swam at sea level for 20 minutes, on the second day performed skin diving for 20 minutes, then on the third, fourth and fifth days performed Scuba diving for 20 minutes at 10, 20 and 30 meters respectively. Before and immediately after swimming and diving blood samples gathered. For statistical analysis of data used dependent t-test, one-way ANOVA and tukey post hoc tests (p <0.05).
Results: diving induced increase environmental pressure has no significant effect on serum platelet changes (p=0.84) nevertheless has significant effect on increase of serum fibrinogen (p=0.001) also 20 mints scuba diving at 20 and 30 meters depths resulted in an significant increase in fibrinogen than scuba diving at 10 meters depth (p=0.02) as well as skin diving (p=0.004).
Conclusion: It appearance that the effect of diving on fibrinogen level almost depends on depth, so that the male diver's fibrinogen levels increase by increase in diving induced environmental pressure.
