ASSOCIATION BETWEEN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND CARDIOVASCULAR RISK IN CAR DRIVERS OF THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT FROM COCHABAMBA, 2018. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.1, pp. 7-16. ISSN 2077-3323.

Introduction: Physical inactivity is one of the most important behavioral risk factors for the development of cardiovascular diseases, that its considered the first cause of premature mortality in working-age worldwide. Objective: To analyze the relationship between physical activity and cardiovascular risk in drivers of public transport from Cochabamba city. Methods: An observational, analytical, cross-sectional study was conducted; 66 drivers of both sexes, of the public transport system, over 18 years participated. The information was collected using the WHO STEP questionnaire, about the sociodemographic profile, risk behaviors, clinical and laboratory parameters. For the statistical analysis Chi-square (x2), t-test, and ROC curve were used. Results: 56,1% had a low level of physical activity; 4,5% with moderate cardiovascular risk. The drivers with moderate cardiovascular risk presented a lower physical activity (average: 480 ± 831 MET [Metabolic Equivalent]) than those with low cardiovascular risk (855 ± 1172 MET), this difference being statistically significant (p=0,035); being more low in elderly drivers, those low schooling and between 10 to 20 years of active work in the transport service. Conclusion: There is a statistically significant association between low physical activity and increased cardiovascular risk in public transport drivers in the city of Cochabamba.
