The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between oxygen consumption (VO2) and both body surface area (BSA) and body size among 30 prepubertal children, 30 circumpubertal children, and 30 adults to determine which scaling model is most appropriate for making comparisons between these populations. All subjects participated in maximal treadmill testing and submaximal treadmill testing at two absolute work rates. Resting metabolic rate was measured on a subset of 48 subjects. It… CONTINUE READING
