Weaning from a Trach

Dear All

My nephew is 9 weeks now post his aneurysm. He is 23 years old and making amazing progress. He is trying to wean from his trach and is having problems with his speaking valve. Can't seem to breathe out of his nose/mouth and is fighting the valve.

Any tips on how to help him go through this stage?

thanks

Kate
