Comprehensive Manuals in Pediatrics are designed to increase the prac­ titioner's scientific scope by means of supplying quite a lot of diagnostic and administration talents typically thought of to be the particular area of the experts. even if the sequence as a complete constitutes a comprehen­ sive textual content in pediatrics, each one quantity stands by itself as a self-contained the busy practitioner. reference for with a view to continue a uniform variety and insurance of every topic, each one handbook is generally written by way of not more than one or authors. every one writer is an stated professional in his or her box and gives a complete, updated account of the subject lower than dialogue. Practi­ cally orientated, every one quantity bargains concise directions and classes of remedy. Michael Katz E. Richard Stiehm Preface a lot wisdom has been generated in recent times through scientists investigating the triad: child-exercise-health. but little of this infor­ mation comes in pediatric textbooks, for program via the clinician. This publication is meant to bridge the ensuing gap.

Example text

It is the alveolar rather than the pulmonary ventilation that determines gas exchange in the alveoli. In spite of their shallow breathing pattern, children's physiologic deadspace is smaller than in adults, and alveolar ventilation is adequate for gas exchange. 93 ,183 In fact, children have a mild alveolar hyperventilation, as judged from their arterial PC02 (Paco2)' During various levels of treadmill II or cycling92 ,93 exercise, children's arterial PC02 has been lower (33-36 mm Hg) than among adults (40 mm Hg).

In addition, blood flow through the pulmonary capillaries increases proportionately. Fewer data are available on the respiratory than on the circulatory system of the exercising child. These suggest that children's pulmonary response to exercise is quite similar to that of adults, with some quantitative differences. 4. Pulmonary Ventilation. In absolute terms, ventilation grows with age. Whereas a 6-year-old child may reach a maximal pulmonary ventilation of 30-40 liters/min, a young adult can reach 100-120 liters/min and more.

3). 7) groups. Subjects performed an all-out cycle-ergometer test. Heart volume was assessed at rest. Regression lines reproduced with permission from Wirth et al. 206 22 1: Physiologic Responses to Exercise of the Healthy Child A related finding is presented in Fig. 16. Girls and boys who performed maximal exercise were subdivided into prepubertal, pubertal, and postpubertal groups. At an equal maximal O 2 uptake, heart volume (an important factor in the ability to raise stroke volume during exercise l04 ) of the prepubertal children was the smallest.
