Abstract

Introduction: Maximum oxygen consumption is acceptable to measure the fit between a person with a job. The aim of this study was to determine maximal oxygen uptake career as a medical emergency and use it as a tool for selecting students. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study among emergency medical personnel (n = 6) and emergency medical students (n = 56) was conducted in 1395 in Qazvin University of Medical Sciences. For estimate maximal oxygen consumption personnel, The most difficult task (cardiopulmonary resuscitation - lung) identification, simulation and was measured by meta-Max device German cortex. Students also completed the Physical Activity Readiness – Questionnaire (PAR-Q) and demographic characteristics were evaluated through treadmill (Gorkin) and Step (Queen's College) tests. Then compare the maximal oxygen uptake individual and job, were use to comment about the suitability and the true selection of students for the jobs of medical emergencies. Results: Maximal oxygen uptake in emergency medicine job in the most difficult task (cardiopulmonary resuscitation - lung) using the experimental approach by Metamax, 2.52 liters per minute (Equivalent to -0.0113 in standardization)respectively. Average maximum oxygen consumption students by Gorkin and Queen's College tests obtained respectively 4.17 and 3.36 liters per minute. Weight, height and body mass index were identified as factors influencing the maximum oxygen consumption (p<0.05). Also were obtained positive and significant correlation between the above-mentioned tests (r=0.66, P<0.05). 41.1 percent of medical emergencies students by step test and 48.2 percent by treadmill test are not chosen appropiate based on criteria oxygen consumption emergency medicine job. Discussion and conclusion: Based on compared maximum oxygen consumption students with the benchmark jobs, two-third of emergency medical fitness of heart - lung are not appropriate And to achieve the appropriate level of oxygen consumption, exercise programs are needed. Considering the correlation between the two tests and ease of use Gorkin and Queen's College Step Test This test can be used to replace treadmill tests.
