"How Could You Not Want the Valve Used with Your Loved One?"

Margery’'s partner, Fred, had a devastating hemorrhagic stroke. He required a tracheostomy and mechanical ventilation to live. Many of the hospital staff ignored his attempts to communicate because they were unable to understand him and they felt that he was not responding appropriately. Weeks went by and no attempts were made to determine if Fred would be able to speak.

Margery was frustrated that she was unable to communicate effectively with her partner. When Fred was finally transferred to Malotz Rehabilitation, his speech-language pathologist gave him the opportunity to use a Passy Muir® Valve. Fred got his voice back, and was more responsive than many expected. Click the video to hear Margery discuss her experience with the Passy Muir® Valve.
