ABSTRACT

Purpose:The purpose of this study were to determine whether changes of position might effect the chest expansion and pulmonary function of the 20s men obesity. Methods:Thirty subjects with obesity(M:30, % fat>25.0) and thirty normal subjects(M:30, % fat<24.9) were participated in experiment. Subjects were assessed according to position changes(supine position, 45° lean sitting position, 90° sitting position) using chest length(chest length for resting, chest expansion) and pulmonary function (Tidal volume, Inspiratory capacity, Vital capacity, Inspiratory reserve volume, Expiratory reserve volume) by the CardioTouch 3000S(BIONET, USA). Repeated measure ANOVA was used to compare each region data of chest length and pulmonary function according to changes of position with obesity and normal subjects. Results:These findings suggest that the obesity can be appear to low chest expansion and pulmonary function than normal subjects on position method. In comparison of three experimental position, supine position was more low. Conclusion:This study showed position of the obesity appear low chest expansion and function of pulmonary volume than normal subjects, and thus it indicates that the pulmonary function of the obesity will be suggest objective respiratory data through the exercise program.
