A comparative study on respiratory parameters between kayaking and canoeing players
Author(s): Bhupinder Singh and Vikesh Kumar
Abstract:
This study aimed to examine the comparison of respiratory parameters between kayaking and canoeing players. To investigate in this study 24, players of kayaking and canoeing from Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar between the age group of 21-26 years (23.5 ± 1.74456) volunteered to participate in the study. Student t test for paired samples was utilized to compare the means of kayaking and canoeing players. Significant differences were found in Tidal Volume (VT) and Inspiratory Capacity (IC) whereas, no significant differences were noted in Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV), Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV) and Vital Capacity (VC) in the experimental group. The Mean and Standard Deviation values of Tidal Volume (VT) of Kayaking & Canoeing players were 391.42± 10.00 and 396.50± 6.75 respectively. The Mean and Standard Deviation values of Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV) of Kayaking & Canoeing players were 4499.50±151.15 and 4558.17±125.90 respectively. The Mean and Standard Deviation values of Vital Capacity (VC) of Kayaking & Canoeing players were 4499.50± 151.15and 4558.17± 125.90 respectively. The Mean and Standard Deviation values of Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV) of Kayaking & Canoeing players were 2986.67± 106.88 and 3016.67± 71.77 respectively. The Mean and Standard Deviation values of Inspiratory Capacity (IC) of Kayaking & Canoeing players were 3517.92± 73.16 and 3523.75± 59.82 respectively. There were no significant differences found between kayaking and canoeing player in the scores of respiratory parameters.
