IN the investigation of equine pulmonary disease, ancillary diagnostic aids, such as tracheal respiratory secretion examinations, are performed, first, when clinical signs of pulmonary disease are inconclusive, to confirm if pulmonary disease is present, and, secondly, where there is overt pulmonary disease, to help establish the type of disease present. Additionally, in the case of pulmonary bacterial infections, respiratory secretion examinations can identify the type and sensitivity of the causal organisms.
