Shiley™ Speaking Valve
It is designed for use on alert, awake tracheostomy patients who can breathe independently without assisted mechanical ventilation. It connects to the tracheostomy tube and directs airflow past the vocal cords to facilitate speech.
The Shiley™ Speaking Valve permits easier vocalization without finger occlusion, which may cause hygiene and infection concerns.
