Description détaillée : Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery 3rd edition

Equine Sports Medicine & Surgery, 3rd Edition provides a comprehensive guide to exercise physiology and training within a clinical context, along with a detailed review of all diseases affecting horses used in racing and competition.

Not only does this text discuss the physiological responses of each body system to exercise, but it covers nutritional support, the prevention of exercise-induced disorders and lameness, and modification of training regimens.

New to this edition are topics such as drug effects on performance and the use of cloud-based technologies for monitoring performance. Written by an expert team of international authors led by Dr.Kenneth W. Hinchcliff, this authoritative, all-in-one resource is also available as an eBook on Expert Consult.


What is the content of "Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery 3rd edition" ?

  • Comprehensive coverage is based on sound research and evidence-based practice, and provides an understanding of the physiologic processes underlying the responses of horses to exercise and physical conditioning, from musculoskeletal and respiratory disorders to nutrition and physical rehabilitation.
  • International perspective on equine athletics includes guidelines pertinent to different geographic areas and racing jurisdictions.
  • Complementary and alternative therapies are explored, as well as physical therapy and chiropractic therapy for athletic horses.
  • Coverage of abnormalities of the upper airway is now divided into two chapters: Disease of the Nasopharynx and Diseases of the Larynx and Trachea.
  • Coverage of diseases of the heart is divided into two chapters: Arrhythmias in Equine Athletes and Structural Heart Disease of Equine Athletes.
  • Nearly 900 drawings and clinical photos depict equine anatomy, testing, and treatment scenarios.
  • High-quality artwork includes new radiographic, ultrasonographic, CAT scan, and MRI images to aid understanding and diagnosis.
  • Expert Consult website includes a fully searchable version of the entire text with each new print purchase.


New chapters in this edition include:

  • History of Equine Exercise Physiology
  • Farriery and Shoeing of the Equine Athlete
  • Transportation of Athletic Horses
  • Investigating Causes of Death During Exercise
  • Behaviour and Behavioural Abnormalities in Horses Used for Racing and Competition
  • Welfare of Horses Used in Racing and Competition
  • The Connected Horse on innovative, cloud-based technologies used to monitor horses during racing/competition and training
  • Track and Course Design
  • Principles of Regulation of Drug Use in Competition Horses
  • Detection of Drug Use in Performance Horses
  • Drug Effects on Performance
  • Epidemiology and Control of Infectious Diseases in Populations of Equine Athletes.
