This course provided an advanced overview of upper airway physiology, discussed the anatomic and physiologic changes in the respiratory system post tracheotomy, discussed challenges for managing patients during COVID-19 and discussed practical solutions to improve pulmonary health for patients with a tracheostomy. This course is offered for .1 ASHA CEUs or .1 AARC CRCEs.
Practical Guide to Tracheostomy HMEs: UK Perspective
PRESENTED BY: Allana Kelley, Izzy Aldred, Danielle Esteves and Barry Ford
This course provided a basic overview of the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory tract, discussed the physiologic differences for patients with tracheostomy, discussed specific challenges for managing patients during COVID-19 and discussed solutions to provide protection and improve pulmonary health for patients with a tracheostomy. This course is offered for .1 ASHA CEUs.
Tracheoesophageal Voice Restoration: Problems and Solutions
PRESENTED BY: Deanna Cohen-Mardekian, MS, CCC-SLP and Samantha Jones, MA, CCC-SLP
This course gave attendees theoretical and practical solutions for solving some of the most common problems associated with tracheoesophageal (TE) voice restoration. Specific examples of problems addressed were: leakage through and around the voice prosthesis, early device life failure of a TE voice prosthesis, immediate and delayed post-fitting aphonia, and difficulty with stomal occlusion. This course is offered for .1 ASHA CEUs.
Following the Continuum of Care Post-Tracheostomy
PRESENTED BY: Rommie Barhoumeh RT, Darrell Bryant RT, Kimberly Weir MS, CCC-SLP, Meaghan Benjamin MA, CCC-SLP and Deanna Cohen-Mardekian MS, CCC-SLP
This course provided an overview of the considerations for assessment and weaning process from mechanical ventilation to spontaneously breathing. It also discussed challenges for managing patients during COVID-19 including how to evaluate for HME with both closed suction and HME on the self-ventilating patient and how this impacts mobility, sleeping and communication. This course is offered for .1 ASHA CEUs or .1 AARC CRCEs.
Atos Webinars: Educational offerings
The following recorded webinars are offered for educational purposes only. No ASHA CEUs are offered for viewing.
Interdisciplinary Airway Management and Learnings from COVID-19: A Panel Discussion
PRESENTED BY: Deanna Cohen-Mardekian MS, CCC-SLP and Meaghan Kane-Benjamin MA, CCC-SLP
This panel, comprised of SLPs, RTs and MDs from leading facilities in the US, focused on tracheostomy management, development and role of an interdisciplinary airway team, post-COVID laryngeal sequalae, and general learnings to date. Recorded on July 14, 2020.
In-Hospital Tracheostomy Care: Humidification and Filtration Options
PRESENTED BY: Julie Bishop-Leone, MA, CCC-SLP
Tracheostomy bypasses the upper airways and as a result, the important, natural humidification and filtration functions are lost. The tracheostomy creates an open portal of entry for unconditioned air, microbes and other fine airborne particles into the lower airways. Atos Medical is providing expanded access to our line of tracheostomy heat and moisture exchangers and filters for US healthcare facilities. This product information webinar is designed to introduce the options that are now available and answer questions about specifications and indications for use.
