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.
