Abstract

Pulmonary test is the test that can be enabling to measure the ability how efficient the
lungs work. Spirometry was important as the maneuver or equipment as application for
accessing the respiratory diseases providing the recommendation, indications and
contraindication when use the device [4]. Thus, this study conducted to determine how
much air entering into the lung based on three categories of sports which are netball,
football and hockey female athletes and also to identify does chest circumferences were
related towards the sports itself. 52 female athletes were recruited in the study. They
were asked to fill up the demographic form and informed consent also chest
circumference measurement before started the spirometer test which the test had
measure FVC, FEV1, FEV1/FVC, and PEF reading variables. One-way ANOVA was
used to investigate to make comparison of the sports with pulmonary function test's
variables while correlation was used in order to measure relationship between CM with
those variables. The result shows there was significance different between categories of
sports with the FVC reading, and there was no significance different between categories
of sport with FEV1, FEV1/FVC and PEF reading. The prediction for those sports
showed that athletes who were exercises, tend to have higher value in FVC reading
because of large muscle worked throughout regular training. There was no significance
relationship between CM and PFT's reading variable. As for conclusion, the results of
this present study conclude that the type of sports determines each of the pulmonary
function variables and chest circumference does not influenced lung capacity at all.
