9 -fluids and exercise

  1. 1. 9--Fluids and exercise Nutrition and Fitness Dr. Siham Gritly
  2. 2. Water• Water is the most abundant chemical compound in living human cells, accounting for 65-90% of each cell. Each water molecule consists of two hydrogen atoms bonded to one oxygen atom, but the mass of each oxygen atom is much higher than the combined mass of the hydrogen. Dr. Siham Gritly
  3. 3. Importance of waterMain functions of water;1-water provide the medium for the solubilization and passage of nutrients organic and inorganic from blood to the cells2-water transport nutrients and waste products to and from cells through blood stream Dr. Siham Gritly
  4. 4. 3-it serves as the medium where intracellular metabolic reactions take place4-regulate body temperature; water major constituent of sweat and through evaporation from the surface of the skin (conduction, convection, radiation, evaporation)5-control osmotic pressure in the body and maintaining a proper balance between water and electrolytes Dr. Siham Gritly
  5. 5. Distribution of Water in the body• The body water is the most abundant constituent of human body• It divided into two major compartments;1-intracellular compartment includes all water enclosed within cell membranes (28L)2-extracellular compartment; external to cell membranes, (14L) Dr. Siham Gritly
  6. 6. Extracellular water divided into; plasma and the interstitial fluid.The interstitial fluid provide the medium for the passage of nutrients and metabolic products back and forth between the blood and cells Dr. Siham Gritly
  7. 7. Fluids and exercise• exercise increases the loss of water in two ways• 1-it increase rate respiratory tract• 2-exercise increase the body heat and thus result in excessive sweating of respiration, which increase water loss through the skin Dr. Siham Gritly
  8. 8. • depletion of water occurs through sweating and respiration• -much of water lost through sweating comes from the blood leading to reduce the blood volume that may threaten cardiovascular function• -when fluid losses; sweating and blood flow to the skin are decrease and temperature elevated Dr. Siham Gritly
  9. 9. • -fluid loss of 4 to 5% reduce work capacity by 20 to 30% and thus impairs performance• -the amount of fluid lost during exercise depends on the intensity and duration; effort, temp and humidity• fluid losses should be monitored with body weight measurements and urine color• -one pound body loss is equal to 2 cups of fluid that should be replaced Dr. Siham Gritly
  10. 10. • -dark yellow urine can indicate dehydration• -during long and intense exercise athletes should replace water at regular intervals• -continuous replacement is important during and after exercise Dr. Siham Gritly
  11. 11. How exercise affect body temperature• During exercise the metabolic rate production increase (energy metabolism)• Energy during exercise released as heat• The total amount of heat produced depends on the intensity and duration of exercise Dr. Siham Gritly
  12. 12. Regulation of body temperature duringexercises• Hypothalamus in the brain responsible for many physiological body function including body temperature.• Hypothalamus receive information or output from;-• 1-skin by sending impulses to hypothalamus• 2-blood temperature directly affect hypothalamus and influences the thermostat Dr. Siham Gritly
  13. 13. Exercise;• look for related glands that regulate body fluids Dr. Siham Gritly
  14. 14. • regulatory center of hypothalamus regulated body temperature during exercises through;• 1-sweating begin and evaporation will remove heat away from the body• 2-blood will come closer to the skin so that heat may get closer to the outside and radiate away Dr. Siham Gritly
  15. 15. Hypothermia and hyperthermia• Hypothermia• In cold , wet and windy environment conditions heat is lost more rapidly than it is produced through exercise• Athletes can inter in a condition known as hypothermia• Early sign of Hypothermia or low body temperature are;- muscular in coordination and mental confusion Dr. Siham Gritly
  16. 16. • hyperthermia• During exercising in warm or hot environment and air movement and radiation can all increase body temperature through the skin• Hyperthermia lead to limiting physical performance and have very dangerous effect of the athletes (central neural fatigue, cardiovascular strain, muscle metabolism and dehydration) Dr. Siham Gritly
  17. 17. How heat is lost• Heat loss through four physical means;1- conduction; heat is transferred from the body by direct physical contact, such as when individual sit on a cold seat2- convection;-heat is transferred by movement of air or water over the body Dr. Siham Gritly
  18. 18. 3- radiation;-heat energy radiates from the body into surrounding air4- evaporation;-heat is lost from the body when it is used to convert sweat to a vapor, it is known as the heat of vaporization. Dr. Siham Gritly
  19. 19. Dehydration and exercises• Dehydration; is the reduction of body water below the normal level of hydration, this means that water output exceeds water intake. Dehydration lead to hypohydration• Many expert suggested that dehydration lead to decrease of intracellular and extracellular fluids which have negative effect of athlete performance. Dr. Siham Gritly
  20. 20. The physiological effect of Dehydration during exercises• The main physiological effect of dehydration during exercise are;-• 1-decrease plasma volume• 2-increase plasma osmolality (the ionic concentration of the dissolved substance/ unit of solvent) or the concentration within a fluid• 3-increase viscosity• 4-decrease blood volume Dr. Siham Gritly
  21. 21. • 5-decrease stroke volume (amount of blood pumped by the heart per beat)• 6-increase heart rate• 7-decrease cardiac output (is the amount of blood pumped by the heart in 1 minute measured in L/min)• 8-decrease skin blood flow• 9-decrease sweat rate• 10-increase body temperature Dr. Siham Gritly
  22. 22. The importance of hydration during exercises• Fluid losses in excess of 5% of body weight can reduce exercise capacity by as much as 30%.• Electrolytes such as sodium, and to a lesser extent magnesium and potassium, are also lost from the body with sweat..• It is therefore important to keep well-hydrated by drinking before, during and after exercise. Dr. Siham Gritly
  23. 23. Diet strategies• regular diet that meets energy and nutrient needs will replenish lost electrolytes.• exercising that lasting more than one hour, sports drinks may be needed to replace fluids and electrolytes.• Salt tablets can and impair performance; they increase potassium losses, irritate the stomach, and cause vomiting. Dr. Siham Gritly
  24. 24. Hydration and exercise• Before exercise• It is important to begin an exercise session well-hydrated. Drinking 400 to 500ml of fluid 10 to 15 minutes prior to exercise is recommended.• During exercise• it is suggested that 150 to 250ml of fluid should be drunk every 15 minutes. The choice of drink depends on the intensity and duration of the activity.• After exercise• After exercise, rehydration and full recovery can only be achieved if the electrolytes which have been lost in sweat are replaced as well as the water Dr. Siham Gritly
  25. 25. Electrolyte balance and physical activities• Electrolytes are substances which in solution conducts an electrical current• The solution referred to an electrolyte solution• Acids, base and salts are common electrolytes, they usually dissociate (disconnect) into ions, particles carrying either a positive (cation) or negative (anion) electric charge such as nerve impulse Dr. Siham Gritly
  26. 26. Electrolyte Losses and Replacement• When a person sweats, small amounts of electrolytes—the electrically charged minerals sodium, potassium, chloride, and magnesium—are lost from the body along with water.• Losses are greatest in beginners;• training improves electrolyte retention Dr. Siham Gritly
  27. 27. • Intracellular fluids:POTASSIUM,PHOSPHATE,PROTEINS• Extracellular fluids; and PLASMA):SODIUM,CHLORIDE,BICARBONATE• Semester V1 in more details Dr. Siham Gritly
