Cardiovascular drift is attributed to the competition for blood flow between the working muscles and skin, as well as the decreasing plasma levels during dehydration; however, research has documented that sufficient fluid replacement attenuates cardiovascular drift (3).
Although the ambient temperature, the workload and the recovery time are not easily controlled in the field, ample fluid replacement during recovery periods should be provided to offset sweat losses, and attenuate cardiovascular drift.
The influence of graded dehydration on hyperthermia and cardiovascular drift during exercise.
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of active muscle mass on cardiovascular drift ([CV.
This phenomenon is called cardiovascular drift ([CV.
The magnitude of the participated muscle mass plays a critical role for the development of cardiovascular drift, when the oxygen consumption per leg is the same.
