Table 1 Comparison of anthropometric and cardiorespiratory variables

From: Effect of long term high altitude exposure on cardiovascular autonomic adjustment during rest and post-exercise recovery

S.N Variable Highlanders (n = 29) Mean ± SD Lowlanders(n = 29) Mean ± SD p-value
1 Age (years) 28.76 ± 8.43 28.86 ± 8.21 NS

3 Height (cms) 1.65 ± 0.05 1.71 ± 0.06 0.001
4 Weight(Kgs) 63.38 ± 5.64 66.76 ± 6.78 NS
5 BMI (Kg/m2) 23.19 ± 1.89 22.84 ± 1.90 NS
6 Systolic BP (mmHg) 120.76 ± 10.40 115.52 ± 9.95 0.016
7 Diastolic BP (mmHg) 82.90 ± 8.12 78.14 ± 7.14 0.02
8 Resting HR (bpm) 67.83 ± 9.89 69.24 ± 7.99 NS
9 Recovery HR (bpm) 96.97 ± 18.44 106.28 ± 15.57 0.048
10 Fitness Score 4.45 ± 1.88 3.27 ± 1.75 0.00
11 Physical activity ratinga 6.24 ± 0.87 5.98 ± 1.08 NS
  1. The p < 0.05 was considered statistically significant
  2. BMI Body Mass Index, NS statistically non-significance, BP Blood Pressure, HR Heart rate, bpm beats per minute
  3. a physical activity rating was calculated using questionare based on Jackson, et. al [16]
