This is the Final report dealing with development of stable isotope approaches for the study of water-electrolyte balance dynamics in relation to exercise in heat. This progress report describes the development of analytical chemistry of labeled water H2018 and rubidium as tracers for the measurement of body water and its dynamics and intracellular mass and its correlates. The methods used in these studies are based on Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry IRMS and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry ICPMS. It is shown clearly that both these methods can be used effectively for simultaneous measurement of body water and body rubidium and their correlates in human adults.
