Patients undergoing tracheostomy for long-term ventilation may face uncertainties about what their future ability to communicate will be. Clear and uninterrupted verbal communication is possible through the use of the Passy-Muir® Tracheostomy and Ventilator Swallowing and Speaking Valve.
Please join Jack Rushton, a home ventilator user and Linda Dean, RRT, Clinical Specialist from Passy-Muir, Inc. for an informational webinar about the use of the Passy-Muir Valve. Jack will provide a first-hand account of his experience using the Passy-Muir Valve, including the first time he tried it and the many ways it has enhanced his life over the 22 years he has been using it. Practical and clinical information will be provided by Linda, including successful placement of the valve in-line with the ventilator and the many clinical benefits beyond communication that the valve has to offer. Appropriate ventilator adjustments, connection options within the circuit, and transitioning and troubleshooting tips are included in this webinar.
