A non-sterile technique of intermittent self-catheterization was used for 218 patients with an inability to void in a normal fashion because of obstructive uropathy, decompensated detrusor or neurogenic bladder. Marked improvement was noted in urinary continence, urinary infection, renal function, bladder emptying and, perhaps most important, the mental and(More)
Four hours prior to exercise on a high-speed treadmill, 4 dosages of furosemide (0.25, 0.50, 1.0, and 2.0 mg/kg of body weight) and a control treatment (10 ml of 0.9% NaCl) were administered IV to 6 horses. Carotid arterial pressure (CAP), pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP), and heart rate were not different in resting horses before and 4 hours after(More)
Furosemide, which commonly is used as a prophylactic treatment for exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage in horses, may mediate hemodynamic changes during exercise by altering prostaglandin metabolism. To determine if furosemide's hemodynamic effects during exercise in horses could be reversed, cyclooxygenase inhibitors were administered with furosemide.(More)
This article discusses exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH), a pathophysiological syndrome which occurs worldwide in the equine athlete. It reviews the history of EIPH, the incidence in performance horses, the etiology, studies performed on the treadmill to determine the mechanisms of EIPH, and the most likely causes of stress failure of the(More)
