Abstract

Our study aimed to define the determinants of athletes' Force Vital Capacity (FVC), Force Expiration Volume (FEV1), and Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF). We conducted a cross-sectional study involved 134 athletes from 14 different sport disciplines. We observed age, sex, resting heart rate, body mass index, skinfold thickness, hypertension, and smoking status. The present study revealed that different sports disciplines influenced pulmonary function based on FVC, FEV1, FEV1/FVC, and PEF. These findings add to evidence that there is a significant difference in pulmonary function among sports disciplines. Accuracy sports discipline observed had the highest score in the FEV1/FVC and PEF, while weightlifting showed the lowest FVC and FEV1. Ball game disciplines showed the highest score in FVC and FEV1/FVC. The present study concluded that the disciplines of sports were related to the pulmonary function test results. We observed that ball games had higher FVC and FEV1/FVC.
