  • Children physiologically react differently to exercise than adults
    • Require 20-30% more oxygen while steady rate jogging
    • Higher chance of hyperthermia
      • higher body temperatures & inefficient sweat glands
    • Higher Chance of hypothermia
      • Large surface area and low body mass lead to heat loss in water

Book 85-86
