Passy Muir Tracheostomy Speaking Valves provide many clinical benefits due to their unique no-leak design. We offer several types of Passy Muir Valve to enable the medical team to offer the best suitable solution for the individual.
Features and Benefits
Invented by a patient named David Muir, the Passy Muir® Tracheostomy & Ventilator Swallowing and Speaking Valve is a simple medical device used by tracheostomy and ventilator patients. When placed on the hub of the tracheostomy tube or in-line with the ventilator circuit, the Passy Muir Valve redirects air flow through the vocal folds, mouth and nose enabling voice and improved communication.

Tracheostomy and ventilator speaking valves
TR PMV 0002 (Aqua) Tracheostomy and Ventilator Speaking Valve
(15mm I.D./22mm O.D.) is designed to fit inside adult disposable ventilator tubing. The bright colour makes it easier to see while in the ventilator tubing. Use of an adapter may be needed to adapt the PMV to paediatric or various closed suctioning systems.
TR PMV 1003 (Purple) Low Profile — Lower Resistance Tracheostomy Speaking Valve
(15mm I.D./23mm O.D.) is identical to the TR PMV 1002 except for its colour. This valve is bright purple to facilitate staff awareness and monitoring of patients while using the PMV.
TR PMV 1002 (Clear) Low Profile — Lower Resistance Tracheostomy Valve
(15mm I.D./23mm O.D.) is lightweight and smaller than the original PMVs. It is designed to be clear and less visible for the more ambulatory patient.
TR PMV 1005 (Clear) Secure It
The PMV 2000 and PMV 2001 are designed with a small ring that allows the new PMV Secure It to attach from PMV to the trach tie to prevent valve loss.
