Author(s): Anindya Bhowmik
The aim of the study was to compare the body mass index (BMI), resting respiratory rate (RRR) and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) between tribal and non-tribal inter-college sports participants. The 19 tribal and 21 non-tribal male sports participants were included in this study. All participants were the members inter-college sports teams of Seva Bharati Mahavidyalaya, Kapgari, Jhargram in 2016-17 session. The BMI was measured by used of BMI formula, RRR in numbers of breath per minute was counted followed by stopwatch and the PEFR in l/minute was measured by peak flow meter. Independent t-test was used to analyzed the data and significant level was set at p< 0.05. The findings were BMI and PEFR were insignificant difference and RRR was significant difference between the study groups.
