Exercise Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage - Management and Treatment

Management and Treatment

A wide variety of treatments have been used or suggested for treatment of EIPH, including resting, anti-inflammatories (e.g. corticosteroids), bronchodilators, anti-hypertensive agents (including nitric oxide donors and phosphodiesterase inhibitors), conjugated estrogens (e.g. Premarin), antifibrinolytics (e.g. aminocaproic acid and tranexamic acid), snake venom, aspirin, vitamin K, bioflavinoids, diuretics (e.g. furosemide, known as Lasix or Salix), nasal strips (e.g. FLAIR Nasal Strips), concentrated equine serum (CES) and omega-3 fatty acids. Both the FLAIR Strips and the diuretic furosemide have been shown to have similar efficacy in reducing EIPH under laboratory and field conditions. A single study has shown that concentrated equine serum also reduced EIPH. There is currently no evidence to suggest that rest, bronchodilators, anti-inflammatory drugs, bioflavinoids, oestrogens, antifibrinolytics, aspirin, phosphodieterase inhibitors or surgical correction of upper airway obstructions reduce EIPH. In contrast, nitric oxide and aminocaproic acid have been shown to worsen EIPH.

Furosemide (Lasix) has been used to prevent the condition, although it does not work in 50% of cases, and it is banned in some countries. Other treatments that have been used include bronchodilators, coagulants, and estrogen.

Famous quotes containing the words treatment and/or management:

    Judge Ginsburg’s selection should be a model—chosen on merit and not ideology, despite some naysaying, with little advance publicity. Her treatment could begin to overturn a terrible precedent: that is, that the most terrifying sentence among the accomplished in America has become, “Honey—the White House is on the phone.”
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    This we take it is the grand characteristic of our age. By our skill in Mechanism, it has come to pass, that in the management of external things we excel all other ages; while in whatever respects the pure moral nature, in true dignity of soul and character, we are perhaps inferior to most civilised ages.
    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)
