Exercise Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage - Risk Factors For EIPH

Risk Factors For EIPH

While all horses undertaking intense exercise experience some degree of EIPH, some horses consistently experience greater haemorrhage and other horses experience isolated episodes of increased EIPH. In the case of horses that consistently demonstrate greater severity of EIPH this is most likely due to congenital factors, such as very high pulmonary vascular pressures. In horses that experience isolated episodes of increased severity of EIPH, possible contributing factors may include, amongst others, pulmonary infection or atrial fibrillation.

Famous quotes containing the words risk and/or factors:

    The effect of liberty to individuals is that they may do what they please: we ought to see what it will please them to do, before we risk congratulations.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)

    Girls tend to attribute their failures to factors such as lack of ability, while boys tend to attribute failure to specific factors, including teachers’ attitudes. Moreover, girls avoid situations in which failure is likely, whereas boys approach such situations as a challenge, indicating that failure differentially affects self-esteem.
    Michael Lewis (late–20th-century)
