Evidence Based Practice
When placed on the hub of a tracheostomy tube or in-line with the ventilator circuit, the Passy Muir Valve redirects airflow through the vocal folds, mouth, and nose, enabling voice and improved communication. Years of evidence-based research has shown that the Passy Muir Valve offers patients numerous clinical benefits beyond communication, including improved swallow, and secretion management.
