The distribution of blood flow to a number of organs and tissues of the tufted duck was determined (by the microsphere technique) before and while the birds were swimming at close to their maximum sustainable velocity (i.e. at 0.69 +/- 0.01 ms-1). During swimming, oxygen uptake was twice the pre-exercise value. Cardiac output increased by 70%, there was no significant change in arterial blood pressure and total systemic conductance increased by 44%. There were no significant changes in blood… CONTINUE READING
