Abstract: Background: Physical fitness is required not only by athletes for better performance but also by non-athletes for maintenance of physical and mental health. Objective: The aim of the study was to assess the role of aerobic exercise on Haemoglobin and % Saturation of Haemoglobin among untrained and trained subjects. Methods: The present study was conducted in the Department of Physiology, Dr. S. N. Medical College, Jodhpur after ethical approval. Informed written consent was obtained from all the subjects included in the study. In this study total 200 male subjects were included, which were further divided in two groups. Group I included 100 randomly selected untrained male subjects (medical students) at the beginning of their training period. Group II: It included the same 100 healthy medical students, as in group I, but after their training period of 3 months duration. Group III: 100 randomly selected male Athletes participating in city/district/state competition constituted the trained group. All the subjects in untrained group participated in aerobic exercise for three months. Untrained Subjects were assessed for haemoglobin with the help of complete blood cell count from Automated Hematology Analyzer (Sysmex 5-part fully automatic analyzer xs-800i. Japan) and % Saturation of Haemoglobin with the help of pulse oximeter, before and after training. Values obtained were compared with data obtained from athletes. Result: Aerobic exercise training resulted in increase in values of Haemoglobin and % Saturation of Haemoglobin in medical students. Conclusion: Exercise is a physiological stress to body which is healthy and improves the body’s ability to use oxygen and regular exercise is important for health and well being.
