Nebulisation is a respiratory management technique in which tiny spherical droplets of aerosolised medication are generated and inhaled by the patient.
Why use a Nebuliser?
A nebuliser device enables the horse owner to easily administer care to their horses airways and lungs. The device incorporates a mask that fits on the nose and a technological means of generating a fine mist.
Old style technologies are based on a compressor which plug into the mains supply. Newer technologies are ultrasonic devices, while the most up-to-date devices (e.g. Flexineb E3) incorporate a vibrating piezo component. Each of these technologies can generate the fine mist which ensures the mist goes directly into the airways and ultimately the lungs.
Why are we different?
Flexineb E3 is a robustly designed product which will not be easily broken. It sits comfortably on your horses nose, and there are no pipes, hoses or compressors ( no gas or air required ).
The rechargeable battery is charged in under two hours, just like a mobile phone. The battery provides up to 4 hours operation before recharging is required.
Developed in Ireland with the help of Irish and International veterinarians, trainers and owners it is ideal for a number of ongoing issues such as:
COPD, RAO (HEAVES), EIPH (BLEEDING), pre training to optimise airways, post training to support lungs in recovery, seasonal coughs & runny noses throughout winter when stabling is more frequent.
Respiratory diseases are both a common and a serious problem in horses, they are typically divided into conditions affecting the lower (i.e. the lungs) respiratory tract and the upper (i.e. the nose, throat and trachea) respiratory tract. These diseases can be chronic, short lasting, infectious and hard to diagnose.
Equine Respiratory diseases combined, are No.1 athletic performance inhibitor in Equine competition, both professional and amateur. Respiratory disease affect both the youngest and oldest horses, some of these diseases can have high mortality rates and effect the longevity of a horse.
