How do you use the API to list records with field IDs instead of names?

I’ve tried to update my code to take advantage of the field IDs instead of using field names. It works great when sending data to Airtable. But when I query Airtable for records, it sends the field name. Is there a way to get Airtable to send the field IDs instead?

Currently, I’m receiving something like this with field names:
{ id: ‘rec2FTSuyeCV042Pa’,
fields: { Person: ‘Steve’, Birthday: ‘1992-03-30’ },
createdTime: ‘2022-03-14T22:32:21.000Z’}

But I want to receive something like this with field ID’s instead:
{ id: ‘rec2FTSuyeCV042Pa’,
fields: { fldF2IRPW6dwD0VDr: ‘Steve’, fldkuv35FqhZPq2GT: ‘1992-03-30’ },
createdTime: ‘2022-03-14T22:32:21.000Z’}

Any help is appreciated!
