• Correct referencing in line with college procedures
Structure of the essay-is made by me, however, I’m open at better suggestions.
• Hydration for physiological and psychological function
• Composition of drinks
• Rehydration strategies
1.Functions of Water:
• Water body mass
• Water in blood – main constituent of blood plasma
• Transport oxygen via haemoglobin in red blood cells
• Transport nutrients-give e.g.
• Transport waste products-give e.g.
• Transport of medication and supplements-give e.g
• Delivery of hormones-give e.g
• Delivery of buffering agents-give e.g
• Thermoregulation i.e.
• Determinant of blood pressure (cardiovascular function) n.b.
2. Brain Function
• Brain controls thirst and water excretion from kidneys.
• Mental performance: attention and concentration
• Early signs: light-head, dizzy, irritable, headache.
• Dehydration: l body weigh toss
• More dehydrated, symptoms more severe: clumsiness, dim vision, exhaustion, delirium.
• 10+% loss can be life threatening.
• Loss of body fluids can stop you in your tracks long before your fuel reserves run low
• Inadequate amount of fluid in the body
• Symptoms of dehydration
• Thirst is not a good indicator of hydration status
4. Fluid requirements
• Temperate weather
• Hot weather
5. Fluid during exerciseHOW and WHY? Questions needs to be answered to the following bullet points
• Athletes sweat rate L/hour
• Hot environment athletes sweat rate L/hour
• Fluid intake much less than fluid loss, leads to voluntary dehydration
• Dehydration during exercise (how and why affects: blood volume, muscle and skin in exercise, oxygen, body temperature, heart rate
• Electrolyte loss influence: sweat; osmolality; concentration influenced by sweat rate, training state-acclimatisation; urine production
6. Dehydration and performance (running)-use table, figures, diagrams. HOW and WHY? Questions needs to be answered to the following bullet points
• Chronic dehydration-how affects: the body weight, running time, running speed, length of running
• Mild dehydration can affect the ability to make decisions and performance complex skills?
• Dehydration and different illnesses e.g of illnesses
• Dehydration can lead to life-threatening conditions
7. Effects of dehydration (use tables, charts and/or figures)
8. Recommendations for:
• Temperature (heat, cold)
• Exercise duration/intensity:
• Is it possible to provide specific individual guidelines?
9. Estimating level of hydration (use chart or tables)
• Monitoring urine volume output and colour
• Weighing before and after exercise (weight loss, weight gain)
• What ACSM recommend?
10. How is determining the percentage of body weight loss? (equation and example of how the equation is used)
• What is it?
• When is occurring?
• What is resulting from?
• What is making it worse?
• What are the causes of the hyponatremia?
• What damage can cause to the body/brain?
• Examples of recorded cases/sever cases in ultra-endurance athletes (how they’ve been affected and why?)
• Signs and symptoms
12. Composition of drinks/fluids (use charts and tables)
13. When to drink and how much to drink?
• Before exercise
• During exercise
• After exercise
• How sodium can influence the fluid absorption?
15. Referencesneeds to be in a format of British Journal of Sports Medicine.
