Endotracheal tubes, tracheostomy tubes, and ventilator dependency can have adverse effects on communication and swallowing. SLPs who take the lead role in remediating these impairments need to have the knowledge and skills to provide appropriate, safe, and evidence-based interventions.

This streaming video course is designed for the SLP who has an interest in post-extubation dysphagia and in communication and swallowing challenges associated with tracheostomy tubes and ventilator dependency. The course will review the literature and present a “how-to” guide for managing these medically complex patients. Medical SLPs will walk away with strategies to best manage their patients who are experiencing complications due to artificial airways.
Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:
  • explain the research findings and risk factors associated with post-extubation dysphagia
  • describe various communication options for patients with tracheostomies or ventilators and explain the physiologic benefits of a closed tracheostomy tube
  • determine appropriate swallowing evaluation and treatment techniques for post-extubation and tracheostomized patients
