Hands Free Speech: Setting Patients Up for Success
For Australian Healthcare Professionals only
Successful Hands-Free Speech in Tracheosophageal Voice Prosthesis (TEP) users can often be challenging. How do we best create a closed system given challenging peristomal landmarks? What Hands-Free Speech devices are currently available for patient use? What are the patient's specific goals with Hands-Free Speech, and are these realistic?
We acknowledge the staff shortages currently so, as requested, have developed a 45 minute Lunch and Learn series. In this live webinar, we will discuss baseplate troubleshooting with the goal of improving baseplate seal for Hands-Free Speech. We will also discuss the new SpeakFree™ Hands Free HME and how this device expands hands-free access to TEP users in a simple, fully assembled HME cartridge with an adjustable hands free valve.
