Factors Related to Estimated Maximal Oxygen Uptake (VO2Max) Among Faculty of Health Sciences Students in Universitas Indonesia 2016


Estimated VO2Max value, which is the maximum oxygen capacity a body can use in a minute, is regarded as the best indicator to measure one's level of cardiorespiratory fitness. The objective of this thesis is to get information about the mean value of estimated VO2Max among Faculty of Health Sciences (Rumpun Ilmu Kesehatan) Students and its correlation with sex, physical activity, body mass index, body fat percentage, micro and macronutrient intake, sleep quality, also stress level. This research is a cross-sectional study with 122 samples. Estimated VO2Max value was measured by using Queens College Step Test method. The mean value from all samples was 38,9 6,9 mL/kg/min which differs significantly between each sex group (men = 43,9 7,9 mL/kg/min on men and women = 35,4 2,8 mL/kg/min ; p value<0,05). Bivariate analysis showed that there are positive significant correlation between physical activity, energy intake, protein intake, fat intake, carbohydrate intake, vitamin B1, B2 and Fe intake with estimated VO2Max value, respectively. While it showed negative significant correlation between body fat percentage with estimated VO2Max value. Bivariate analysis also showed that there are no significant correlation between BMI, vitamin C intake, sleep quality, and stress level with estimated VO2Max value, respectively.
