  • Learn how to perform airway endoscopy
  • Learn how to perform diagnostic echography of the larynx
  • Discuss interesting cases
Course Details:

During intense physical activity, sport horses show VO2max values which are much higher than those of human elite athletes. In order to have adequate oxygen uptake and delivery to their muscles to maintain an aerobic metabolism, horses need a healthy respiratory tract. Airway diseases limit their ability for oxygen uptake resulting in faster development of anaerobic states. They lead to a faster development of hyperlactatemia and consequently to a dramatic drop in performance. Respiratory pathologies are therefore one of the major and most common causes for exercise intolerance in sport horses.

Therefore, it is imperative to be able to diagnose airway problems in sport horses in the routine equine practice. A good understanding of the most important aspect of the respiratory physiology and pathophysiology is necessary when veterinarians are working with sport horses.

This practical course will focus on the most important aspects of equine respiratory diseases, to give an overview of the state of the art and new techniques to the participants. The attendees will be introduced to the clinical use of several diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, some of which can directly be applied in their day to day practical work.
