Tracheostomy Tubes in Adults: Management of Communication and Swallowing Impairments

This self-study video, designed for SLPs who manage communication and swallowing problems in patients with tracheostomy tubes, examines the impact of the loss of upper airway usage following tracheotomy. Focus on treatment techniques to restore airflow through the upper airway, thus improving phonation and swallow function. Review current research supporting intervention with patients with tracheostomy tubes, as well as a thorough description of communication options for this population. Specific challenges with the ventilator-dependent patient are also addressed.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe changes in speech, swallowing, and respiration physiology after tracheotomy
  • differentiate between various communication options for tracheostomized and ventilator-dependent patients
  • determine appropriate swallowing evaluation and treatment techniques for tracheostomized and ventilator-dependent patients apply current research regarding restoration of sub-glottic pressure to daily intervention
