Comparison of Peak Flow Rate and Vital Capacity between District

Himanshu Sharma


The purpose of present study was to compare the peak flow rate and vital capacity between district level and state level FOOTBALL players. The subjects consist of 30 ( District level:15 and State level:15) randomly selected male FOOTBALL players, between the age group of 18 to 28 years, studying at different colleges affiliated to Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, Punjab, India. Peak flow rate was measured with a peak flow meter whereas vital capacity was measured by spirometer.The between-group differences were assessed by using t-test. The level of p<0.05 was considered significant.
