Sweating rate and sweat composition during exercise and recovery in ambient heat and humidity

Sweating rate and sweat composition during exercise and recovery in ambient heat and humidity

Equine Veterinary Journal (Suppl. 20): 153-157

Five Thoroughbred horses, aged 3-6 years, completed exercise tests under each of 3 environmental conditions in random order: cool, dry (CD), temperature, 20 degrees C, relative humidity, 45-55%; hot, dry (HD), 32-34 degrees C, 45-55%; and hot, humid (HH), 32-34 degrees C, 80-85%. Horses exercised at 50% of their predetermined VO2max on a treadmill set at a 10% slope until attainment of a pulmonary artery blood temperature of 41.5 degrees C followed by a 60 min recovery.
