This program is designed for the multidisciplinary team and all healthcare professionals who work with adults with
tracheostomy. The program reviews the physiologic impact of a tracheostomy and teaches clinical information
related to tracheostomy indications, timing, and procedures. Attendees will learn step-by-step methods to evaluate
for use of a no-leak speaking valve to restore communication; to improve swallowing, secretion management, and
olfaction; and to restore subglottic pressure, among other benefits. Advanced techniques for successful assessment
and placement of a no-leak speaking valve inline with mechanical ventilation will be demonstrated, including review
of ventilator settings and best practice procedures for use and alarm management. Attendees also will learn the
importance of early intervention and therapy techniques utilizing a no-leak speaking valve for dysphagia and speech.
The impact on mobility, infection control and weaning will be discussed. Case studies, hands on sessions, videos,
and group discussion will be incorporated to complement the lecture and to enhance the learning experience.
