Recorded Webinars

Below are the courses that are currently offered on-demand.

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.

Part 1: Product Webinar

Part 2: Frequently Asked Questions


Freedom to Speak: Hands-Free Speech after Laryngectomy

PRESENTED BY: Yumi Sumida, MFA, MS, CCC-SLP

This course provides a literature review addressing the feasibility and utilization of hands-free speech devices, along with a discussion of patient goals and quality-of-life concerns after laryngectomy. Device mechanics and design, patient candidacy, fitting procedures, and problem-solving strategies to support successful hands-free speech will also be covered.


Understanding Skin Physiology and Management After Total Laryngectomy

PRESENTED BY: Julie Bishop-Leone, MA, CCC-SLP

This course will describe the function of skin, as well as types of and reasons for skin breakdown after total laryngectomy surgery. Participants will learn about practical solutions for preventing and treating irritation from peristomal baseplates, in order to facilitate patients’ ability to wear a Heat Moisture Exchanger for pulmonary rehabilitation.


Pulmonary Rehabilitation for the Neck Breather: Epidemiology Behind the Mucus

PRESENTED BY: Meaghan Kane-Benjamin, M.A., CCC-SLP

This course will discuss anatomical changes that affect the respiratory system after total laryngectomy. An overview of pulmonary sequelae that result from changes in tracheal climate and conditioning, as well as solutions to improve pulmonary health, will be provided. It will also review available heat moisture exchange (HME) devices and the supporting clinical evidence.


Laryngectomy Basics for Healthcare Providers

PRESENTED BY: Bridget Guenther, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S

This course is for the healthcare practitioner with limited background knowledge in head & neck cancer who needs to develop basic clinical management skills for patients post total laryngectomy. Instruction focuses on medical/surgical treatments, alterations to anatomy, communication options, and pulmonary rehabilitation, and emphasizes understanding the functional consequences of larynx removal.


Optimizing Voice and Breathing After Total Laryngectomy: Guidelines for Stomal Attachment Selection

PRESENTED BY: Meaghan Kane-Benjamin, M.A., CCC-SLP

This course describes the various intraluminal and peristomal attachment options for attaching a Heat Moisture Exchange (HME) system and/or hands-free device. It will discuss how to select the appropriate attachment for your patient, techniques for placement/application of the attachment for optimal adhesion, and troubleshooting attachments for difficult stomal topography.


Mastering Alaryngeal Communication Using an Artificial Larynx

PRESENTED BY: Meaghan Kane-Benjamin, MA, CCC-SLP

This course is designed to introduce the different types of artificial larynges that are on the market, as well as the IPATPAL method (Information-Placement-Articulation-Timing-Pitch and Loudness) used for patient instruction to help with mastery.


Tracheoesophageal Voice Restoration: Problems & Solutions

PRESENTED BY: Julie Bishop-Leone, MA, CCC-SLP

This course is designed to give attendees theoretical and practical solutions for solving some of the most common problems associated with tracheoesophageal (TE) voice restoration. Specific case examples of problems to be addressed are leakage through and around the voice prosthesis, early device life failure of a TE voice prosthesis, immediate and delayed post-fitting aphonia, difficulty with stomal occlusion, and hypotonicity and hypertonicity of the pharyngoesophageal segment.
