Difference in rehydration process due to salt concentration of drinking water in rats.


Albino rats were thermally dehydrated (approximately 8% of body wt), divided into five groups, and given tap water or 0.2, 0.45, 0.9, or 2.0% NaCl solution ad libitum for 16 h. Rats given 0.9 or 0.45% NaCl solution regained fluid loss completely in 3-3.5 h, whereas those given 0.2% solution became fully rehydrated at 10 h. The rats in the tap water and 2.0… (More)
