A Comparison of the Blom Low Profile Voice Inner Cannula and the Passy-Muir One-Way Tracheotomy Tube Speaking Valve on Voice Production, Speech Intelligibility, and Biomechanical Swallowing Behavior
Diseases and Conditions Researched
Mechanical Complication of Tracheotomy
What is the purpose of this trial?
The main purpose of this study is to investigate voice production, speech intelligibility and routine physiologic parameters associated with the Blom low profile voice inner cannula and the Passy-Muir one-way tracheotomy tube speaking valves.
Additionally, the purpose of this study is to investigate the effects (if any) associated with the Blom low profile voice inner cannula and the Passy-Muir one-way tracheotomy tube speaking valves on swallowing behavior and biomechanical movement of the hyolaryngeal complex during routine diagnostic modified barium swallowing evaluations.

How will my information be used?
When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
