Description

Trachesostomy and ventilator patients face a number of added challenges that often impact therapy outcomes. While working on compensatory strategies, functional mobility, and ADLs in therapy, they’re also developing communication skills, learning swallowing techniques, and adjusting to medical equipment.

This recording explores the latest solutions to these and other challenges of tracheostomy and ventilator management. Examine current tracheostomy benefits, considerations, and best practices by reviewing the anatomy and physiology of respiration, as well as the many different types and combinations of tracheostomy tubes, speaking valves, and ventilators. Discuss how tracheostomies and ventilators impact physical, occupational, and speech therapies, and take home evidence-based tools and rehab strategies the whole team can use to improve rehab outcomes with pediatric and adult populations.
