Overview

New Horizons in Pediatric Exercise Science brings together new reviews by leading international authorities on the impact of exercise on healthy children and children with chronic diseases. Clinicians, practitioners, and researchers who are interested in the effects of physical activity on the growing child will find comprehensive information on the endocrinologic aspects of pediatric exercise; physical activity, nutrition, and bone mineral development; exercise training in pediatric cardiac patients; nutrition and physical activity in developing countries; and the relationship between physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness. Using a multidisciplinary approach that adds to the body of knowledge in the growing subdiscipline of pediatric exercise science, this book goes beyond mere research compilation to include implications for clinical practice.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James A. Stockman III, MD (American Board of Pediatrics)
Description: This book is a compendium of chapters that summarize invited lectures from the joint meeting of the European Group of Pediatric Work Physiology and the North American Society of Pediatric Exercise Medicine held in Canada in 1993.
Purpose: The intent of this work in summarizing this conference is to create a body of lectures that summarize information about the status of exercise science in children.
Audience: The audience targeted by this work is definitely those interested in exercise physiology and its effects on children. The book will probably be of limited interest to others except, perhaps, as a reference source.
Features: It represents a compilation of state-of-the-art reviews by leading authorities on selected topics of interest to clinicians, practitioners, and researchers who have a special interest in the effects of exercise on the growing child. Areas covered include endocrine aspects of exercise, the relationship between bone metabolism activity and growth, training and congenital heart disease, nutrition and exercise, and a description of what is going on around the world in terms of activity related to investigations into the field of exercise physiology as applied to children.
Assessment: A definite strength of the work is its in-depth treatment of the science. A shortcoming, common to reprints of lectures at symposia, is the observation that the book is neither seamless from beginning to end, nor is it a comprehensive treatise of the discipline. Nonetheless, there is much to be learned from the material presented, and the reader will be impressed by how rapidly information has evolved in the area of exercise physiology and the impact of exercise on the growing child.
