The Tracheostomy Speaking Valves and Accessories by Passy Muir give patients back the ability they feel has been taken from them due to their tracheostomy procedure. Basically, a hole made in the front of the neck going into the windpipe. This procedure is done to help people continue regular use of their windpipe and its functions. Functions such as swallowing, speaking, and taking in oxygen.
Passy Muir valves not only restore as best as possible the regular functions of your windpipe but also offers capabilities and advancements for their products. From the original Passy Muir valve PMV005. Advancements have been made if both size, adaptiveness, resistance, and discretion.
Size of the valves and adapters are provided to specifications, according to the needs of the patient. Adapters and valves can be used for adults, pediatrics or neonatal care; depending on the products range of use. When a patient tries to breathe in air with a tracheostomy tube attached, the patient cannot fully engage in the process of inhaling due to the passageway of the tube. Passy Muir valves allow for natural aspiration by opening its flap located inside the Passy Muir device letting air in. Once the inhaling session stops and the patient exhales, the flap is pressed closed by air exhaling. Valves are offered in a lighter resistance for those who feel they need it.
Being discreet about their tracheostomy is important for some people. They may already feel self-conscious about their procedure or would prefer to not be visible for the sake of those around. Hiding something that is in plain sight may be tricky, but can be accommodated. Optional low-profile and clear design of some of the valves help aid in such accommodations. The low-profile offers the same functionality as the regular versions of the product but are less intrusive and of clear design to not draw attention.
Comfortability of patients using Passy Muir products has been woven in from the start. Regaining the best grasp of life is within its full intentions of these products. Review some important material before continuing with your purchase so you can make sure the choice you are about to make would be the best one for you.
