Water Loss Under Hot Ambient Temperatures
Keywords: Male Albino, Dehydration
AbstractMale 4 rates were ambient temperature (40 degree,42 degree, and 44 degree calcius) for different durations of time upto a maximum of 3 hours. It was observed that there was a rapid loss in body weight accompanied by considerable increase in body temperature of the animals during the first hour of exposure. Thereafter the rate of body weight loss and increase in body temperature were slow till the end of observation period. Intolerance to heat appears to be more correlated with critical body temperature rather than the extent of dehydration.
