The Passy-Muir® Tracheostomy and Ventilator Swallowing and Speaking Valves have the only patented closed position "no leak" design which enables the valve to close automatically at peak inspiration, not requiring expiratory pressure to close it. Watch this video to see how the valve works and understand the numerous clinical benefits that are FDA indicated and supported by independent research including: restored communication, improved swallow which may decrease aspiration, improved secretion management, improved oxygenation, and expedited weaning and decannulation.
