Respiratory responses in heat-exposed rabbits: Inhibition of tachypnoea offset by increase in tidal volume

  • M. Maskrey


Rabbits in which thermal panting has been inhibiting by previous cold exposure or by water deprivation respond to a raised ambient temperature with an increase in tidal volume. By so doing, they are able to maintain a minute volume appropriate to their thermoregulatory requirements.
