This study investigated the effect of exercise on some haemostatic parameters among students from a tertiary institution in Nigeria. Fifty four individuals participated in this study, comprising 28 males and 26 females. Blood was collected from the participants before and after the rigorous exercise and the prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and platelets count (PLT) were analyzed using standard methodology. Results showed mean values before and after the…

Assessment of Some Haemostasis System BloodIndicators among the Elderly Attending a tertiaryHealth Institution in Nigeria
The pro-thrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time showed a significant increase while blood platelets showed significant decline with ageing, which suggests possible by functioning with “ dysfunctioning of the haemostatic system.
Hemostasis Status of Some Female Students Before and After Menstruation
No significant variation suggests no risk of hypercoagulability or coagulopathy; while platelets values before and after menstruation suggestNo risk of thrombocytosis among the age grade under study.
Prothrombin Time Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time and Platelets Count among Hypertensive Patients Attending a Tertiary Health Institution in Yenagoa, Nigeria
There is need for early diagnosis to avoid hemostatic complications and to aid effective management of the patients, as there were significant variations between the hypertensive and control subjects for each of the parameters.
Changes in white blood cell, red blood cell and platelet parameters following short term aerobic exercise in students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nigeria
Short term exercise causes significant alterations in platelet parameters than other hematological parameters, including the total lymphocyte count, which was significantly higher in females while the granulocyte count was significantlyHigher in males.
Evaluation of Total White Blood Cells and Cluster of Differentiation 4 Cells among Post-Menopausal Women in Elele, Nigeria
The results in the test subjects for both parameters were significantly lower compared to the control, suggesting that the decline in immune system related parameters among the test Subjects may predispose them at risk of multiple infections and other associated health conditions.
Assessment of some haemostatic parameters at different stages of pregnancy
It is indicated that anaemia during pregnancy is a contributing factor to low birth weight, maternal mortality and premature birth.
Some Haemostatic Indicators among Malaria Infected Adolescents Attending a Nigerian University Teaching Hospital
In African, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, and Uganda account for substantial malaria cases and are included among the major public health problems in Sub-Sahara Africa including Nigeria.
Pulmonary and Rifampicin-Resistant Tuberculosis Associated with Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection Prevalence in Bayelsa State, Nigeria: A Case of Patients Attending Federal Medical Centre Yenagoa
There is the need for surveillance of drug resistance in tuberculosis which could lead strengthening of laboratory networks and enhance its prevention and control.


Exercise stress leads to significant increase in total white blood cell counts in both male and female subjects.
Effect of Haemodialysis on Mean Prothrombin Time and Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time in Patients of End Stage Renal Disease
Haemostatic parameters i.e prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time are prolonged after haemodialysis in patients with end stage renal disease.
Different Effects of Strenuous Exercise and Moderate Exercise on Platelet Function in Men
It is concluded that platelet adhesiveness and aggregability may be sensitized by strenuous exercise in both healthy subjects and patients with stable angina.
Effects of exercise training and deconditioning on platelet function in men.
The results suggest that platelet adhesiveness and aggregability may be depressed by exercise training but be reversed back to the pretraining state after deconditioning.
The immediate effect of aerobic exercise on haemostatic parameters in patients with recently diagnosed mild to moderate essential hypertension
Patients with recently diagnosed and never treated mild to moderate essential hypertension undergoing submaximal aerobic exercise present evidence of enhanced fibrinolysis compared with a mild increase of coagulation indices.
Effect of Exercise on Blood Coagulation
It was concluded that, in general, exercise was not followed by hypercoagulability, however, in some subjects, thrombin generation rate was increased due to undetermined factors.
Effect of acute exercise on some haematological parameters and neutrophil functions in active and inactive subjects
In conclusion, the training induced changes in some neutrophil functions, while acute exercise influenced, overall, leucocyte concentrations.
Effects of Exercise on Blood Coagulation, Fibrinolysis and Platelet Aggregation
It is suggested that short term exercise activates blood coagulation and enhances blood fibrinolysis and the delicate balance between clot formation and clot dissolution is maintained in normal populations.
A shortened activated partial thromboplastin time is associated with the risk of venous thromboembolism.
Hypercoagulability detected by a shortened APTT is independently associated with VTE and this inexpensive and simple test should be considered in the evaluation of the risk of VTE.
