Baby Trachs: Passy-Muir Valve in the NICU to Optimize Swallowing and Feeding- This webinar will highlight the key components of Passy-Muir Valve use in the Neonatal Intensive Unit (NICU) for swallowing and feeding. Limited information is available in the literature about application of the valve in this setting. The presenters will describe their journey, share their key clinical leanings and the positive response in their NICU. The fragile nature of these patients, combined with limited knowledge on the part of medical/nursing staff regarding the benefits of the Passy-Muir Valve, require a thoughtful and team-oriented approach. The clinical benefits for using the valve for swallowing and feeding will be reviewed. Functional changes during instrumental assessments with the valve will be highlighted.  0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

Percutaneous Tracheostomy Program and Patient Outcomes- The Johns Hopkins Hospital Percutaneous Tracheostomy Program is a unique multidisciplinary program that was established to meet the peri-operative and post-operative needs of patients undergoing tracheostomy. The webinar will provide an overview of the Percutaneous Tracheostomy Program, development of the program, and its functions. In addition, to describing the Percutaneous Tracheostomy Program, its impact on patient outcomes will be discussed.   0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

Communication and Swallowing Management for ALS Patients with Tracheostomy- Communication and swallowing impairments are common in patients with Amylotropic Lateral Sclerosis, particularly in those requiring tracheostomy tubes. Management of speech and swallowing issues is complex and often intertwined with the patient’s respiratory condition. The speaker will provide insight into the evaluation and treatment options, therapy techniques and goals throughout the progression of the disease. Augmentative communication and use of the Passy-Muir valve as an evaluation and rehabilitation tool will be also be highlighted.  0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

'Yes You Can!' Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation for the Tracheostomy and Ventilator Patient-  Explain the physiology of cardiopulmonary rehab (i.e. oxygen transport), and list the goals & benefits of earlier intervention for the tracheostomy & ventilator patient by a multidisciplinary team. Identify the benefits of the PMV for pulmonary rehab for most successful implementation of various treatment strategies requiring a closed respiratory system & oral exhalation (e.g. expiratory muscles training for speech & swallow, exercise, breathing & posture techniques.     0.1 Free ASHA CEUs (+RT)

Passy-Muir® Valve FAQ Challenge- This presentation will answer the most common questions asked by clinicians related to patient evaluation, candidacy and use of the Passy-Muir® Swallowing and Speaking Valve. In addition common myths and misconceptions will be corrected. Attendees will be polled at the beginning of each topic presented in order to test their knowledge. The clinical specialist presenter will then provide the answers to the most common questions regarding the topics of: airway assessment; choosing a Passy-Muir Valve; ordering and billing information; and, treatment modalities appropriate for use with the tracheostomized and ventilator dependent patient.Describe the bias-closed position Passy-Muir® Valve and explain how a proper upper airway assessment is key to its successful use.Explain how an extra length tracheostomy tube size may affect patient tolerance of the Passy-Muir® Valve.   0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

Speaking Valve and Diaphragm Pacing: Changing Lives- This webinar will focus on the role of the Passy Muir® Valve in treating chronic hypoventilation in persons with a diaphragm pacing system. The audience will be introduced to three individuals with three very different diagnoses who are benefitting from an implanted diaphragm pacer. Clinicians will develop a deeper understanding of the impact of respiratory insufficiency on speech, activities of daily living and overall quality of life. We will identify strategies for an interdisciplinary team to optimize outcomes for persons weaning from a ventilator to a diaphragmatic pacer, using a Passy Muir Valve.   0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

Early SLP Intervention for the Ventilated ICU Patient: Use it or Lose It!- This webinar will address the underlying mechanisms for neuromotor degredation in the ICU patient, & discuss how this can impact oropharyngeal & laryngeal functions. Discussion will include a review of the relevant literature, & offer a model for a variety of therapeutic interventions for dysphagia & communication in the ICU for the tracheostomized & ventilator patient. 0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

There's More to Life than Breathing- Participants will identify the both the quality of life benefits as well as the functional benefits of Passy-Muir Valve use, including the ability to activate various forms of assistive technology (e.g. voice recognition computer software, sip and puff wheelchairs) Participants will have a basic understanding of how the Passy-Muir Valve works with ventilator patients. Participants will identify at least two strategies for facilitating successful transition for use of the Passy-Muir Valve with homecare ventilator patients.  0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

Passy-Muir Valve: Keeping It On and Therapeutic Steps to Follow- This webinar focuses on creative approaches used by speech-language pathologists in collaboration with patient families to address behavioral and medical factors during initial trials of the Passy Muir Valve.  Clinicians and caregivers will be lead through the potential ‘next steps’ to optimize use of the valve for communication and swallow function with pediatric patients.  Individualized maps based on common patient profiles will serve as examples for caregivers and professionals to integrate into daily use of the valve.  The audience will be introduced to a variety of original and engaging therapy activities that address the use of the Passy-Muir Valve for functional communication and swallowing/feeding.  0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

Sponsored by Lingraphica

AAC Technology Design for Persons with Aphasia- Aphasia is a neurological disorder caused by damage (often from a stroke) to the portions of the brain responsible for processing language. Though it does not affect intelligence, people with aphasia often find it difficult to speak, understand speech, read, or write. Lingraphica products are designed to help restore language faculties so aphasics can reconnect and communicate with others. This course is designed to introduce the SLP to the science behind augmentative and alternative communications (AAC) technology and it's integration into patient treatment plans.  0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

You will learn the importance of addressing underlying deficits in timing & rhythm to improve neural efficiency in order to accelerate and exceed expected outcomes. The Interactive Metronome is a patented intervention that improves timing in the brain & body. An overview of the clinical application of Interactive Metronome relevant to a variety of allied health and educational disciplines will be discussed. 0.1 Free ASHA CEUs

IM for Rehab of Blast Related TBI- Dr. Lonnie Nelson will present the findings of a recently completed randomized controlled, trial of Interactive Metronome® (IM) therapy in the treatment of persisting cognitive symptoms following blast-related traumatic brain injury in a sample of active duty Soldiers. Soldiers were randomly assigned to receive either standard rehabilitation care, or standard care plus Interactive Metronome® therapy. Initial findings show that IM therapy significantly improved Attention, Immediate Memory, and Delayed Memory functioning. Indicators of neuroplastic change suggest that brain changes due to IM therapy account for large portions of the variance in neuropsychological test performance. 0.1 Free ASHA CEUs  

Introduction to IM Pediatric Best Practices Self-Study- This course will introduce participants to temporal processing theory and research.
