Endurance athletes (ATP) during exercise through a process called oxida- have a greater percentage of Type I fibers thought to tive phosphorylation. During exercise this pathway uses be the result of genetic predisposition (Rupp, 2001; oxygen to completely metabolize the carbohydrates to Humphrey, 2001). The aerobic oxidation system is Type II (Fast-Twitch) Muscle Fibers complex, and thus requires 2–3 min to adjust to a Type II fibers are muscle fibers that can generally gen- change in exercise intensity; however, it has an almost erate a great deal of force very rapidly. These fibers are unlimited ability to regenerate ATP, limited only by the recruited when a person is performing high-intensity amount of fuel and oxygen that is available to the cell.

In general, carbohydrates are used as the primary fuel at the onset of exercise and during high-intensity work; CARDIORESPIRATORY PHYSIOLOGY however, during prolonged exercise of low to moderate intensity (longer than 30 min), a gradual shift from The cardiorespiratory system consists of the heart, carbohydrate toward an increasing reliance on fat as a lungs, and blood vessels.

Alterations in the and wrist joint narrowing associated with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The alterations in the growth plate and the clinical appearance in the texture of the bone is commonly of Blount’s disease. The anatomic alterations seen on the radiograph lead one to further investigate the source of the varus. The most common conditions encountered are infantile tibia vara (Blount’s disease) (Figures 4. Tibia vara is a disorder of unknown etiology, presenting in both infantile/ juvenile and adolescent forms (Pearl 4. In the infantile/ juvenile form it occurs bilaterally in over half of the cases, and most commonly presents with radiographic ﬁndings in the toddler age group. Historically, children with Blount’s disease generally walk at a much earlier age than their normal counterparts (average nine to ten months walking age). It is far more common in African Americans, probably secondary to early age at walking, and the majority of children are overweight. In addition to clinical varus deformity, internal tibial torsion is always a component. The From toddler to adolescence 68 diagnosis is established by the characteristic radiographic changes. Adolescent Blount’s disease is less common than infantile, is usually unilateral and has a more benign prognosis for ultimate knee formation. Treatment consists of bracing occasionally, and most often surgical correction. Nutritional rickets or Vitamin D rickets present with the characteristic radiographic features of rickets. The diagnosis of either type is generally established in the very early toddler period and in early childhood. Nutritional rickets is currently rarely seen except in children whose diets are speciﬁcally deﬁcient in external calcium intake or with sunlight deprivation.
