FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips are self-adhesive strips that promote optimum respiratory health of equine athletes and help prevent exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH).
FLAIR Strips support the nasal passages during exercise and improve the horse’s airflow when it needs oxygen most. Unlike humans, horses can only breathe through their noses. As horses begin to breathe hard during exercise, the soft tissues overlying the nasal passages are sucked in, reducing the airway diameter. This reduction in diameter causes greater resistance of airflow into the lungs.
FLAIR Strips are proven to reduce airway resistance during exercise. By doing so, FLAIR Strips help prevent fatigue related injuries, protect the lungs from injury and promote optimal athletic performance.
FLAIR® Strips Protect All Hardworking Horses
FLAIR Strips have health benefits for both intensively trained horses and horses that only exert themselves during occasional weekend competitions or trail rides.
Horses that are not in peak physical condition may receive an even greater benefit than horses that are in regular conditioning programs.
- Horses at lower levels of equestrian competition often work as hard and sometimes harder than those at the higher levels.
- All horses experience bleeding in the lungs if they exercise at more than a canter and the damage to the lungs accumulates over time.
Using FLAIR Strips during fast canter and gallop work in training and during competition makes more oxygen available to the muscles, delays the onset of fatigue and results in faster recovery following exercise. This may lead to fewer mistakes, better performance and a lower risk of injury. Read More
