Ventilatory compensation of the alkaline tide during digestion in the snake Boa constrictor
(Journal of Experimental Biology, 2004-03-01) [Artigo]
The increased metabolic rate during digestion is associated with changes in arterial acid-base parameters that are caused by gastric acid secretion (the 'alkaline tide'). Net transfer of HCl to the stomach lumen causes an ...
Seasonal changes in blood oxygen transport and acid-base status in the tegu lizard, Tupinambis merianae
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2004-05-20) [Artigo]
Oxygen-binding properties, blood gases, and acid-base parameters were studied in tegu lizards, Tupinambis merianae, at different seasons and temperatures. Independent of temperature and pH, blood oxygen affinity was higher ...
Effects of temperature on lung and blood gases in the South American rattlesnake Crotalus durissus terrificus
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology A-molecular & Integrative Physiology, 1998-09-01) [Artigo]
The effects of temperature on lung and blood gases were measured in the South American rattlesnake (Crotalus durissus terrificus). Arterial blood and lung gas samples were obtained from chronically cannulated animals at ...
