ABSTRACT:
[b]Introduction:[/b] This study aimed at investigating relationship between lipid index (WS) in the examined cadets and duration of exposure to +Gz in the human centrifuge. [b]Material and methods: [/b]The study involved 19 first year cadets of the Air Force Academy in Dęblin.. Tests in the human centrifuge were repeated twice, i.e. prior to (test I) and 45 days after (test II). After exposure to +Gz, examined cadets were divided into two groups. Group I (N=11) included cadets of the shorter total duration of exposure to +Gz, while group II (N=8) included cadets with longer total duration of exposure to +Gz. Total cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein (HDL), triglycerides (TG), and apolipoproteins A[sub]1[/sub] and B were assayed in blood serum prior to (assay A) and after (assay B) both exposures to +Gz. Low density lipoprotein (LDL) level was estimated from Friedewald formula. WS is an own mathematical algorithm. [b]Results: [/b]WS was higher in group II, assay A- 10.0 and B - 10.08 of test I in human centrifuge than in group I &amp;ndash; where the WS values were 6.91 and 6.96 respectively. WS was also higher in group II in assay A- 10.0 and B -10.1 of test II in human centrifuge than in group I - 6.96 and 6.80, respectively. [b]Conclusions: [/b]Higher value of WS in group II both after the first and second exposure to +Gz in human centrifuge in comparison with group I indicated its usefulness for determination of the maximum capability of applying acceleration of interval type during training in the human centrifuge.
