AeroHippus* Equine Aerosol Chamber
The AeroHippus* Equine Aerosol Chamber (EAC) is designed to be used with a pressurized metered dose inhaler (puffer) as recommended by a veterinarian to deliver aerosol medication to horses with respiratory diseases such as Inflammatory Airway Disease or Recurrent Airway Obstruction. When the AeroHippus* EAC is attached to the puffer it allows your horse to breathe normally and inhale the aerosol medication so the medication goes deep into your horse’s lungs where it is needed.
The Flow-Vu* Indicator will help you count the number of breaths your horse has taken through the chamber and may help to ensure there is a satisfactory seal between the muzzle and the mask, to optimize delivery of the medication. As your horse inhales, the bright green Flow-Vu* Indicator will flutter or move towards the horse (if you have a good mask seal). When the horse stops inhaling or exhales, the indicator will return to the vertical position.
The ideal time to activate the puffer is when your horse starts to inhale and the Flow-Vu* Indicator is moving horizontally towards them.
Remove cap and shake inhaler.
Insert inhaler into back of chamber and gently apply the mask to one nostril on the horse.
Press the inhaler to release the medication when the Flow-Vu* Inhalation Indicator is moving toward your horse and hold the mask in place for 3-5 breaths.
