Quick Pocket Reference for Tracheostomy Tubes and Speaking Valves:

"This is a great reference tool for working with patients with trachs. First, the guide is not much bigger than my iPhone 6. It very easily fits in my scrub top pocket. The pictures are large and very visually appealing. Each page consists of some text but is not too much to read. It is truly a reference tool.

The book consists of the following sections: Basic Tube Anatomy, Selection, Cuffs, Brand Identification, Code on Neck Plate, Sizes, Speech, Talking Trach Tubes, Speaking Valve Identification. Each section consists of pictures and texts to aid in the identification and decision making for Trach tubes and speaking valves. 

Whether a seasoned or new clinician working with patients with trachs, this is definitely a guide worth the money!" - Tiffani Wallace (Dysphagia Ramblings)

"As a busy RT, this Quick Pocket Reference guide has been so helpful at the bedside. I love having this knowledge and resource right at my fingertips!" - Lyndsi Yarkosky, BS, RRT

"The new Quick Pocket Reference for Tracheostomy Tubes and Speaking Valves by Roxann Diez Gross is a 'MUST HAVE' for seasoned and novice Speech/Swallow Clinicians in acute care, intensive care units, skilled nursing facilities, and otolaryngology attendings and residents involved in the care and treatment of adult patients who undergo a tracheotomy. Dr. Gross provides an updated, comprehensive delineation of adult tracheostomy tubes, talk trachs, valves, and caps on the market today - many of which are not typically stocked in hospitals' central supply. In addition, she provides the basics of tube construction, including the variations within/between brands of tubes with regards to component parts, material composition, sizes, cuffs, and cannula angling/flexibility. This well-visualized information is coupled with Dr. Gross' 'newsy' notes, useful tips, and specific precautions. The Quick Pocket Reference for Tracheostomy Tubes and Speaking Valves addresses tracheostomized patients' need for comfort and quality of life by assisting in the education of clinicians and by facilitating accurate, appropriate selection of tracheostomy tubes and prosthetic devices for oral communication." - Suzanne Abraham, SLP
