Facing a Rescheduled or Delayed Appointment
with your Healthcare Provider?
A Blom-Singer® Plug Insert Offers You an Option
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. How healthcare services are accessed is also changing. To minimize the risk of transmission of the virus, many clinics are rescheduling non-essential appointments to keep patients and others safe. During this time, laryngectomy and tracheostomy patients may face greater challenges. They need to be more vigilant than the general population about protecting themselves against contact with COVID-19. If you have a tracheoesophageal voice prosthesis (TEP), the plug insert may be used temporarily in conjunction with a Blom-Singer indwelling voice prosthesis to prevent leakage of fluids through the voice prosthesis into the trachea during swallowing.
The plug insert is designed to prevent leakage through the voice prosthesis while waiting for an appointment with a clinician who can evaluate you and your TEP.
The placement and removal of the plug insert are illustrated in a sequence of easy-to-follow steps. Instructions for use are also available. The links to both are located at the bottom of this page. In addition, our team of clinical specialists are available to answer your questions about the product.
