REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Determining the respiratory related activity of the palatinus and palatopharyngeus muscles in exercising horses is relevant because dysfunction of these muscles has been implicated in the pathogenesis of dorsal displacement of the soft palate. OBJECTIVE To determine if the palatinus and palatopharyngeus muscles have respiratory activity that increases with intensity in exercising horses. METHODS Electromyographic activity was measured in the palatinus and… CONTINUE READING
