OBJECTIVE To use noninvasive respiratory inductance plethysmography (RIP) to investigate differences in breathing patterns between horses with and without recurrent airway obstruction (RAO) during the onset of airway obstruction induced through confinement to stables. ANIMALS 12 horses with no history or clinical signs of respiratory disease (control horses) and 7 RAO-affected horses. PROCEDURES The study involved 2 phases. In phase 1, the optimal position of RIP bands for recording… CONTINUE READING
