  1. Thanks for your reply, i just wonder if this physiology involves the frank starling mechanism? or maybe the stroke volume in babies comparing the heart size is small, so to maintain cardiac output they need to increase the heart rate (that's why the pulse is faster) and as the child grows older the stroke volume gets bigger as the heart size is bigger, and the heart rate reduces (pulse slower) to maintain the required cardiac output?
  2. why do children's pulse rates change as they get older?
