This seminar is designed to provide clinical information regarding the basics of
a tracheostomy, including the physiologic impact of tracheostomy on a patient’s
respiratory, speech, and swallowing functions. Clinicians will learn step-bystep
strategies to assess for the use of a no-leak speaking valve to restore
communication, improve swallow, improve secretion management, and restore
subglottic pressure in adults who require tracheostomy. The basics for successful
assessment and placement of a no-leak speaking valve in-line during mechanical
ventilation will be demonstrated. Attendees will have an opportunity for advanced
learning in one of two breakout sessions: (1) advanced session to review ventilator
settings, best practice procedures, and safe alarm practice when using a speaking
valve; or (2) advanced session on dysphagia assessment and intervention while
treating patients with tracheostomy. Attendees will learn the importance of early
intervention and strategies for utilizing a no-leak speaking valve through case
studies. Learning is enhanced
