This webinar will focus on the role of the Passy Muir® Valve in treating chronic hypoventilation in persons with a diaphragm pacing system. The audience will be introduced to three individuals with three very different diagnoses who are benefitting from an implanted diaphragm pacer. Clinicians will develop a deeper understanding of the impact of respiratory insufficiency on speech, activities of daily living and overall quality of life. We will identify strategies for an interdisciplinary team to optimize outcomes for persons weaning from a ventilator to a diaphragmatic pacer, using a Passy Muir Valve.
