The evaluation of the functional condition of thrombocytes in athletes of a cyclic sport
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the functional state of thrombocytes in athletes in canoe and kayak rowing. 54 sportsmen trained for at least 1 year in the section of rowing on canoe and kayak have been investigated. In all surveyed athletes, the number of platelets in the capillary blood were counted in the chamber of Goryaev. Intravascular activity of thrombocytes (IAT) was determined visually using a phase contrast microscope according to Shitikova. It has been established that athletes retain a stably high activity of blood platelets, especially those athletes who regularly trained in sports section in canoe and kayak rowing, which is largely related to the constant sensitivity level of their receptors to exogenous influences with an invariable number of receptors to them.
