Fluid Balance, Hydration, and Athletic Performance presents a comprehensive review of aspects relating to body fluid balance, rehydration, sport, and physical exercise. The content is scientifically supported, practical, and suitably written for a range of audiences, including academics (professors and students) and sports and health professionals (coaches, physical educators, nutritionists, and physicians), as well as athletes and individuals involved in physical activities. Compared to other books previously published in this area, this book does not limit body hydration issues to the average or elite adult athlete. Rather, it addresses aspects relevant to a range of individuals of different ages (adolescents and master athletes) competing in various sports. In recognition of the growing number of individuals with specific medical conditions who have been exercising more and even participating in competitive sports, separate chapters on prevalent diseases or medical conditions associated with risks of body fluid homeostasis also are presented. To achieve such a complete and qualified publication, the book is written by top experts and professionals experienced in their respective research areas. It presents the basics of fluid balance and provides updates on controversial fluid intake-related issues such as hyponatremia, optimal recovery, intermittent sports, and perceptual responses.

Body Fluid Balance

The book is efficiently organized into three sections: Section one addresses control of body fluid during exercise. Topics range from basic thirst mechanisms to specific organ control.

Body Fluid Balance: Exercise and Sport brings you the latest thinking on important topics in this dynamic research area. The authors of this authoritative compendium provide enlightening data and unique perspectives that will stimulate other investigators and supply independent analyses for practitioners and educators. The book is efficiently organized into three sections: Section one addresses control of body fluid during exercise. Topics range from basic thirst mechanisms to specific organ control. Section two discusses environmental influences on body fluid balance, including heat, cold, altitude, and immersion. Section three describes special considerations affecting body fluid balance during exercise, such as age, gender, physical performance, and clinical complications. Each chapter presents historical perspectives, critical experiments, appropriate analyses, and pertinent conclusions. Nowhere else will you find the information you need in such an easy-to-follow, convenient format.

The administration of intravenous fluids is one of the most common and important therapeutic practices in the treatment of surgical, medical and critically ill patients. The international literature accordingly contains a vast number of works on fluid management, yet there is still confusion as to the best options in the various situations encountered in clinical practice. The purpose of this volume is to help the decision-making process by comparing different solution properties describing their indications, mechanisms of action and side-effects according to physiologic body water distribution, electrolytic and acid-base balance, and to clarify which products available on the market represent the best choice in different circumstances. The book opens by discussing in detail the concepts central to a sound understanding of abnormalities in fluid and electrolyte homeostasis and the effect of intravenous fluid administration. In the second part of the monograph, these concepts are used to explain the advantages and disadvantages of solutions available on the market in different clinical settings. Body Fluid Management: From Physiology to Therapy will serve as an invaluable decision-making guide, including for those who are not experts in the subject.

Environmental Influences on Body Fluid Balance During Exercise Cold Exposure

Body fluid losses in cold climates can be similar to those in hot environments. Fluid loss results from sweating and increased respiratory water losses as well as cold induced diuresis.

Body fluid losses in cold climates can be similar to those in hot environments. Fluid loss results from sweating and increased respiratory water losses as well as cold induced diuresis. Additional studies are needed to further document the magnitude of cold-induced dehydration as well as the specific distribution of these losses throughout various body water compartments. Fluid intake in cold environments can be reduced as a result of logistical constraints in fluid delivery, problems with water freezing, reduced thirst sensation, and voluntary fluid restriction. Dehydration, negatively influences physical and cognitive performance as well as thermoregulation and possible susceptibility to peripheral cold injury. The research is needed to determine the direct effects of cold-induced dehydration on thermoregulatory responses to cold and susceptibility to peripheral cold injury. Recent experimental findings suggest that ingestion of glycerol in drinking water might be an effective countermeasure to reduce or delay cold-induced dehydration and the associated decrements to performance. Additional countermeasures and aids for maintaining hydration during cold exposure should be explored.

The concept of this book has developed over the past fi fteen years as interest in the water and electrolyte disturbances associated with most environmental settings moved from a research area of descriptive discovery to one dealing with the mechanisms responsible for the previously observed disturbances. Most of the contributing authors have been involved in both aspects of this evolution of research, focusing on those problems associated with body fluid and electrolyte balance and searching for hormonal explanations. What did not accompany this transition, however, was a source of information encompassing the area of interest. Instead, the previous format of environmentally focused symposia, reviews, and books continued to be the only sources available. For instance, various books deal with the physiology of high altitude, space, or exercise but do not necessarily provide adequate coverage of water and electrolyte disturbances. To our knowledge, the format of this book is unique. We have made the central focus water and electrolyte physiology with an emphasis on endocrinology and tried to comprehensively cover this area of physiology in some of the more heavily studied environments. This book too, then, will have its limitations in coverage. For instance, in-depth coverage of the respiratory and cardiovascular responses to the high altitude en vironment will not be found, but since these areas are so integrally associated with water and electrolyte regulation they are not ignored.

Athletes and nonathletes frequently consume too little water or fluids, affecting exercise performance as well as overall health. This book comprehensively reviews the aspects relating to body fluid balance, rehydration, and physical exercise. It provides background on body water balance and turnover, topics related to electrolyte balance, and sweating as the basis for thermoregulatory and fluid homeostasis during exercise. In addition, chapters cover body water balance evaluation and regulation; cardiovascular and metabolic responses to fluid imbalance; effects of dehydration on aerobic power, muscle strength, and cognitive function; fluid intake timing; and optimal beverage selection.

Body fluid regulation is pivotal to human health and is served by extensive clinical and pre-clinical science. By combining modern advances with previous findings in the field, this book presents a comprehensive treatment of major experiments, theories, and new advances in the field of body fluid regulation, thirst, and drinking. It features the main integrative brain mechanisms for fluid regulation, the development of such systems, fluid balance during heat and exercise, aging and clinical disorders, and comparative aspects of fluid regulation. The volume focuses on mammalian thirst or drinking behaviour alongside relevant aspects of the physiology of fluid balance. The principal fluid compartments and their regulation by both intakes and losses are highlighted, using both human and animal studies to illustrate the main concepts.
