​​​​CMU researchers investigate ways to maintain and achieve proper hydration and electrolyte balance. Recent experiements have investigated the effects of dehydration on the onset of exertional heat illness; rehydration after exercise; real-time sweat electrolyte analysis; and the effects of various hypertonic drinks (e.g., pickle juice, hypertonic saline) on blood electrolyte concentrations and water flux.
