Direct measurements of ventilatory parameters have been employed in a study of ventilatory adjustments and changes in expired gas composition during heat stress in the greater flamingo, Phoenicopterus ruber. At thermoneutrality Tb = 39.5 C) average resting values were breathing rate (f) 9.6·min⁻¹, tidal volume (VT) 40.4·ml·kg⁻¹, ventilation V̅I 382.6·ml·min⁻¹·kg⁻¹, oxygen uptake $$\bar{V}_{O_{2}}$$ 1.03·ml O₂STP. g⁻¹·h⁻¹. The f is lower and all other parameters higher than values predicted from… Expand
Ventilatory and circulatory changes during cold exposure in the Pekin duck Anas platyrhynchos.
TLDR
From a thermoregulatory point of view it seems significant that the increased heat production during cold exposure is followed by an increased oxygen extraction in the lungs and in increased cardiac output, rather than by a further elevation of ventilation. Expand

Summary1.Bolborhynchus lineola, a parrot of the humid tropics, has an unusually narrow thermoneutral zone (TNZ) (28–30 °C) and a total (wet) conductance 40% greater than predicted based upon itsExpand
Ventilatory accommodation of oxygen demand and respiratory water loss in a large bird, the emu (Dromaius novaehollandiae), and a re-examination of ventilatory allometry for birds
TLDR
Data indicate that at least in the emu an increase in oxygen extraction can be stimulated by low temperature independent of oxygen demand, and tidal volume increased at 45°C, whereas past studies have shown that CO2 washout is minimal under these conditions. Expand
Ventilatory and circulatory responses to hyperthermia in the mute swan (Cygnus olor).
TLDR
It is concluded that the increased ventilation during panting mainly constitutes dead space ventilation resulting from the great reduction in tidal volume and mean arterial blood pressure and total peripheral resistance were slightly reduced. Expand
Ventilation and gas exchange in the mute swan, Cygnus olor.
TLDR
The breathing frequency was much lower and the tidal volume much higher than values predicted from allometric relations, and the breathing cycles typically showed long end-inspiratory breath holding periods, indicating a high gas exchange efficiency of the swan lung. Expand
Ventilation and oxygen extraction in the little penguin (Eudyptula minor), at different temperatures in air and water.
TLDR
Despite large increases in metabolic rate in birds in cold water, VI/VO2 and hence EO2 did not vary in non-heat exposed penguins over a range of air and water temperatures and end expired gases approached atmospheric levels. Expand
Lung Ventilation and Temperature Regulation in the European Coot Fulica atra
TLDR
The respiratory responses to changes in Ta are discussed in terms of heat economy, showing that actual respiratory heat loss is only 9.6% of the theoretical maximum at −25 C and 79.7% is due to reduction in V̇I/V̇o2. Expand
Effects of temperature and altitude on ventilation and gas exchange in chukars (Alectoris chukar)
TLDR
Chukar partridges showed few obvious ventilatory adaptations to HA, and oxygen consumption increased with decreasingTa atTa from 20 to −20°C but remained constant and minimal at LA and HA. Expand
Gas exchange during high-frequency ventilation in the pigeon (Columba livia).
TLDR
High-frequency ventilation can augment gas exchange when the tidal volume (VT) is less than the volume of the anatomical dead space (VD), however, normal arterial gas composition can only be maintained if respiratory frequency is high (greater than 20 Hz). Expand
The respiratory responses of the fowl to hot climates.
TLDR
Respiratory rate and tidal volume have been measured at normal and at warm ambient temperatures in adult domestic fowl by means of a whole body plethysmograph and total ventilation showed a linear relation with f during first-phase panting. Expand

Gas exchange in the domestic fowl during spontaneous breathing and artificial ventilation.
TLDR
When the unanesthetized hens were relaxed with succinylcholine and artificially ventilated, using the same tidal volume and frequency as observed during spontaneous respiration, the same values for O2 uptake and for CO2 and O2 partial pressures in arterial blood were measured, indicating unchanged gas exchange efficiency of the respiratory system.

Evaporative water loss, respiratory pattern, gas exchange and acid-base balance during thermal panting in Pekin ducks exposed to moderate heat.
TLDR
It is concluded that panting ducks exposed to non-stressful heat loads adjust their pulmonary ventilation efficiently by greatly increasing respiratory evaporative cooling without modification of the normal acid-base balance. Expand

TLDR
The body plethysmograph, used to monitor respiration, blocked cutaneous evaporation of water which significantly hampered the pigeons' ability to thermoregulate when compared to free-standing controls. Expand

TLDR
Deeper panting observed at higher temperatures suggests ventilated air to be partly saturated, and the standard metabolic rate measured within the thermoneutral zone increased to 7·94 and 10·14 cal/g per hr at 45 and 50°C respectively. Expand

It has been reported that under conditions of high heat stress, thermal panting evokes marked changes in acid base status, i.e., an increase in pH and a lowering of arterial Pco2. Expand
