Free Webinar Self-Study Courses
Passy Muir currently offers a comprehensive selection of free, web-based self-study courses that cover basic and advanced concepts for Passy Muir® Valve assessment and application. These courses serve as an excellent introduction and provide a baseline level of knowledge and will be helpful to your team should you take advantage of the more advanced education provided during an on-site visit.
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, these live events feature step-by-step strategies for assessment and application of a no-leak speaking Valve to restore communication, improve swallowing and secretion management. Offered for CEU credit, these comprehensive workshops provide detailed information about tracheostomy, and feature hands-on learning, case studies, videos and group discussion.
Workshops are special courses that provide more intensive learning on specific topics related to the care of patients with tracheostomies and who are to be assessed for Passy-Muir Valve use. They are 3-hour intensive courses that focus on a specific topic, such as mechanical ventilation, ethics, dysphagia, or others, and provided by a Clinical Specialist. Our workshops are interactive and allow time for Q&A. They cover the topics in depth and present the research that supports any guidance or recommendations provided in the workshop.
If you have taken our webinar self-study courses and would like to have your entire multidisciplinary team receive the information provided in the webinars, one of our clinical specialists can schedule and host a live group webinar for your facility. These group webinars are tailored to meet the individual needs of your facility and the ventilators you use. Live interaction with the Passy Muir Clinician provides the opportunity for question and answers and facilitates team-building and competency development for your group.
In-services begin with a presentation on the benefits and application of the Passy Muir® Valve. We review the physiology of the upper aerodigestive tract, including the impact of a tracheostomy on communication, swallowing, and more. The in-services also provide information on the many evidence-based, clinical benefits of the Passy Muir® Valve, including the positive impact on communication, improvements with swallowing, return of smell and taste, improved secretion management, and earlier decannulation and weaning.
