Comparing the Effect of Diving on Thrombin and Thromboplastin Among Male Divers During Mornings and Evenings

Authors : Jaafar Tayebi and Reza Fatemi Motlagh

Abstract: The present study was focused on comparing the effect of diving on thrombin and thromboplastin among male divers during mornings and evenings. In so doing, 10 volunteer divers with a mean age of 32.83±2.63 years, mean weight of 178.83±2.88 cm were selected from among the divers of Red Crescent and Rescue Society of Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province. To carry out the study, a pre and post-test plan was employed with repeated measurements. The divers swam at 9 am and 3 pm at depths of 10, 20 and 30 for 2 min during 3 days with an intensity of 40-50% of heart rate reservein a to-and-fro way. The participants had safety stop for 5 min at a height of 3 m to the water surface. Before and after diving, 7 cc blood sample was taken from all of the participants. Data analysis were carried out through dependent and independent t-tests using SPSS Software. The results of the experimental examinations and statistical analysis indicated that there was no significant difference between thrombin changes in diving groups in the mornings and evenings (F1, 8 = 1.79, p = 0.21). Moreover, there was no significant difference between the thromboplastin in diving groups in the mornings and evenings (p = 0.54). In addition, the results indicated that there was no significant difference between the changes in thrombin and thromboplastin given the increase in the pressures caused by diving in sea depths in both morning and evening groups (p = 0.09; p = 0.06).
