Atos Medical Inc. has always believed in offering a strong educational component for our customers. We know how difficult it can be to change and introduce new practices in healthcare. To assist, Atos Medical offers a comprehensive laryngectomy pulmonary rehabilitation program as part of the continuum of care.
Laryngectomy Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program
- We have created a training program for healthcare providers, with the use of the Provox Laryngectomy Kit (LPK), to introduce the use of Heat and Moisture Exchangers (HMEs) immediately postoperatively
- We offer a comprehensive clinical pathway guideline as well as onsite nursing/RT in-servicing during shift change
- We have written extensive educational and training materials for the patient, family and healthcare providers
- Upon discharge, while the patient is getting settled with outpatient care and insurance, we offer a Coming Home case that provides product and support resources, with the return of a completed Consent Form.
