Potential impact of a 500-mL water bolus and body mass on plasma osmolality dilution

A methodological discrepancy exists in the hydration assessment literature regarding the establishment of euhydration, as some investigations utilize a pre-hydration technique, while others do not (overnight fluid/food fast). However, the degree that plasma osmolality (P osm) dilutes when using the pre-hydration method and how body mass/composition might… CONTINUE READING
