Dr. Brien: Great presentation. Hope you have fun at the meeting. I see some trends here. I don't know if they mean anything. The drink intake was 899 g, 794 g and 950 g for FW, NaCl and CHO and the urine output was 166.0 g, 188.0 g, 136.2 g for FW, NaCl and CHO. I see that the ratio of urine output to drink input was the highest for NaCl and lowest for FW. Does this mean anything. Two more questions. How did you measure thirst and how did you manage to keep the NaCl containing water of same sweetness and palatability as the water without the salt?
