PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess coagulation and fibrinolytic responses to snow removal. METHODS Thirteen healthy male subjects (age = 26 +/- 5 yr, height = 179.0 +/- 7.0 cm, weight = 78.7 +/- 16.1 kg, .VO2max = 54.7 +/- 8.9 mL.kg-1.min-1) underwent maximal treadmill stress testing (TM), 10 min of snow shoveling (SS), and 10 min of snow removal using an automated snow thrower (ST). Blood was collected immediately before and after each test and analyzed for von Willebrand Factor… CONTINUE READING
