What are the benefits of the "Passy Muir Valve"?
*Restores Positive Airway Pressure: louder voice, improved swallow, stronger cough, and increased oxygenation.
*Superior Voice/Speech Production: Patients can produce clearer voice with more normal phrasing, better vocal quality and increased volume because all exhaled airflow is redirected up past the vocal cords.
*Improves Swallow & May Reduce Aspiration
*Restores Subglottic Pressure: Only the closed position "No Leak" design of the Passy-Muir Valve reestablishes a closed respiratory system and restores subglottic pressure, which improves swallowing and may reduce aspiration.
