The speaking valve has two infinitely adjustable side openings and an oxygen supply port. By turning the head part of the valve, the breathing resistance can be individually adjusted. Expiration then takes place partially via the side openings and the natural airway. The bright orange color is for improved visibility and for increased distinguishability from other attachments. For attachement to tracheostomy tubes with 15 mm connector.
The Tracoe Phon Assist I speaking valves are used by tracheostomized patients and, thanks to its infinitely adjustable airway resistance, offers new therapeutic options, e. g. for weaning from ventilation, stimulation of the oropharyngeal region, and voice finding for children using ‘Find the Voice’.
