Gambaran hasil pemeriksaan kekuatan otot mahasiswa program studi sarjana kedokteran dan pendidikan dokter fakultas kedokteran dan mahasiswa program studi farmasi fakultas matematika dan ilmu pengetahuan alam universitas udayana tahun 2019


Introduction: Muscle strength is an important component in health that plays a role in physical development, sports skills and social relations. Based on epidemiological data, muscle strength is also a predictor of mortality in various clinical conditions. The objective of this research is to find out the description of muscle strength in Udayana University’s medical and pharmacy students.

Method: This research is a descriptive study with cross-sectional design and sample selection using purposive random sampling method with 120 respondents.
Results: Based on examination with handgrip dynamometer, most of the respondent’s muscle strength was normal, the other muscle strength was classified as poor and lacking.

Discussion: Respondent’s muscle strength did not reach the maximum category.

Pendahuluan: kekuatan otot merupakan komponen penting dalam kesehatan yang berperan dalam perkembangan fisik, keterampilan olahraga dan hubungan sosial. Berdasarkan data epidemiologi kekuatan otot juga merupakan faktor prediktor mortalitas pada berbagai kondisi klinis. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah untuk mengetahui gambaran kekuatan otot pada mahasiswa Program Studi Sarjana Kedokteran dan Profesi Dokter Fakultas Kedokteran dan mahasiswa Program Studi Farmasi Fakultas Matematika dan Ilmu Pengetahuan Alam Universitas Udayana.

Bahan dan Metode: Penelitian ini merupakan suatu studi deskriptif dengan rancangan potong lintang (cross-sectional) dan pemilihan sampel menggunakan metode purposive random sampling dengan jumlah responden sebanyak 120 orang.

Hasil: Pemeriksaan dengan handgrip dinamometer sebagian besar kekuatan otot responden tergolong normal, pemeriksaan kekuatan otot lainnya tergolong kategori buruk dan kurang.

Diskusi: Kekuatan otot responden tidak mencapai kategori maksimal.
