This investigation was undertaken to study heat stress and dehydration effects on 1) plasma lactic acid (LA) concentration and 2) plasma LA effect on plasma volume conservation during thermal dehydration. Experiments were performed on conscious nonacclimated and heat-acclimated laboratory rats subjected to various levels of heat stress and/or dehydration (37-42 degrees C with and without drinking water). During the exposures, rectal temperature (Tre), plasma LA pyruvic acids, and hematocrit… CONTINUE READING
