Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Center, University of California, Irvine
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01981902
First received: August 13, 2013
Last updated: February 8, 2017
Last verified: February 2017
  Purpose
Dehydration can result from exposure to harsh environments including hot and dry desert climates. Soldiers and non-military workers are frequently required to work in hot, dry conditions, and dehydration can be productivity limiting and life threatening if unrecognized.

Condition Intervention
Dehydration Device: Non-Invasive Optical Spectroscopic

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Non-Invasive Optical Spectroscopic Methods for Dehydration Identification in Marathon Trainees

Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Dehydration
Non-Invasive Optical Spectroscopic monitoring method for dehydration
Device: Non-Invasive Optical Spectroscopic
Non-Invasive Optical Spectroscopic

Detailed Description:
The research can use low power laser technology to take measurements of muscle tissue water content in volunteers before and after marathon training runs to detect dehydration. Two slightly different devices can be used to detect dehydration. 1). diffuse optical spectroscopy and 2). spatial frequency domain imaging-modulated imaging The researchers can determined by use other methods to assess the level of dehydration status in runners. These methods will include taking weight and temperature before and after run, skin-fold measurements pre and post run, and obtaining saliva samples from before and after run. The researchers can determine the study use non-invasive, laser light technology measure tissue water concentrations, as an indicator of dehydration.
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
Study population are the volunteers who are training for a marathon individually or under the guidance of the Leukemia Society Team in Training, the American Heart Association, or similar groups. These organizations run programs that include providing group-training situations for individuals interested in preparing for a marathon while participating in fund raising efforts.
