Strategies for Assessment and Treatment Following Tracheostomy: An Interactive Seminar

Offered for CEU credit, this interactive seminar provides clinical information regarding the basics of a tracheostomy, including the physiologic impact of tracheostomy on patient respiratory, speech, and swallowing functions. Clinicians will learn step-by-step strategies for assessment and application of a no-leak speaking valve to restore communication, improve swallow, improve secretion management, and restore subglottic pressure in adults who require a tracheostomy. Instructions for successful assessment and placement of a no-leak speaking valve in-line during mechanical ventilation will be demonstrated together with a review of ventilator settings, best practice procedures, and safe alarm practice when using a speaking valve. Advanced options for treatment of dysphagia, including while a patient is on mechanical ventilation will be presented.

Attendees will learn the importance of early intervention and strategies for utilizing a no-leak speaking valve through case studies. Learning is enhanced through hands-on training sessions, patient videos, and group discussion.
