QOD 29: Dehydration in an Athlete (Labs/Health Promotion and Maintenance)

Answer:

B.  Drink fluids starting several hours before exercise begins

Rationale: 

A person who exercises a great amount, such as with a student athlete, may be at risk of dehydration and electrolyte imbalance from water loss through sweat and respiration. The nurse should counsel the patient to drink electrolyte replacement beverages or water and to drink fluids throughout the entire period: before, during, and after exercising.
