Effect of exercise on platelet variables: An overview


Author(s): Biswanath Garai, Sridip Chatterjee, Samiran Mondal and Tirtha Mondal

Abstract: Background: Platelets are small, anucleated blood elements and under normal conditions constitute a small fraction of the circulating cells. A growing body of recent research reports indicates that platelet functions in the human body are influence by physical training and regular exercise habit.
Objective: The specific aim of this systematic review study is to explore the effect of exercise on platelet parameters and their functions in the human body.
Acquisition of Evidence: Relevant research evidence was gathered through online search method. Studies directly matched and fulfill the primary objective of this review study were considered, reviewed properly and presented systematically.
Findings: Within this review paper, we are trying to focus and discuss the current information on the impact of exercise on platelet function. Present overview of exercise effect on platelet parameters are reported here under the following heads: Influence of moderate exercise on platelet count, Influence of strenuous exercise on platelet count, Influence of moderate exercise on mean platelet volume, Influence of strenuous exercise on mean platelet volume, Low level exercise and mean platelet volume, Influence of moderate exercise on platelet distribution width, Influence of strenuous exercise on platelet distribution width and low level exercise and platelet distribution width. Platelet Counts Increases with strenuous exercise and decrease with moderate type of exercise. Previous researcher indicates that the average healthy size of platelets may change in human from different part of the world. The mean platelet volume (MPV) increased immediately after long term aerobic exercise. Different intensity of resistance exercise reported significant increase of mean platelet volume. Most of the reports does not found any significant increase in PDW after regular Exercise Participation whereas effect of acute exercises on PDW are decrease significantly.
Conclusion: Finally it can be concluded that different mode of exercise has multidirectional effects on platelet function in the human body.
