Keys to Success

A significant amount of literature has been published providing evidence that a multidisciplinary team approach is critical to the care of tracheostomized patients. Tracheostomy teams are essential to earlier and more consistent use of the Passy Muir® Valve as a critical intervention for communication, swallowing, rehabilitation and decannulation which results in reduced total tracheostomy time, length of stay, adverse events and cost of care.
Follow these steps to ensure that all tracheostomy and mechanically ventilated patients are evaluated for candidacy for the Passy Muir® Valve and to increase the time that patients are using the valve.
