One of our favorites! You can get this at most local drug stores. It doesn’t have to be the Vicks brand, but we love this face mask steamer for our patients with hoarse voice or thick mucous secretions (nasal or throat area). Do not use the menthol vapor pads if trying to hydrate your mucosa as recommended by your Speech-Language Pathologist.

Training the respiratory and laryngeal muscles to get stronger and more efficient is an important part of vocal and swallow function health. One of our favorite resistance trainers is the Breather. The rate of your air when blowing in and out of the device will determine the level of resistance in combination with the dial level. The dial level controls different flow rates to further help increase/decrease resistance. There are other more affordable options that resemble this device online if you are willing to take time to search for it on sites like Wal-Mart. Your Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) will provide more detailed directions for how to best use this device for your unique difficulties in your therapy session.

This is another device used for training respiratory and associated laryngeal muscles. Unlike a resistance trainer, this device is a pressure threshold trainer that is can also help build up strength of targeted muscles. When you increase the pressure valve, it is much like increasing how much weights you are lifting at the gym and requires less errors for accuracy than a resistance trainer. Your Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) will provide more detailed directions in your therapy session.

For our chronic throat clears and/or coughers, these are great for helping you reduce that urge to throat clear or cough while not drying up your mucosa. You want to avoid lozenges that are drying due to ingredients such as menthol (which most cough drops on the market use to “suppress” coughing). Your Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) will provide more detailed directions in your therapy session as to why we want to avoid those type of lozenges and use other techniques to reduce your coughing/throat clearing. We use this for our patients that have been cleared by their doctors and have no underlying medical conditions that are contributing to their issue outside of reflux.
