Thought I might pass on a helpful hint if you currently know someone needing the aid of a breathing tube.

If the patient can hear you ask them if they want to talk - if yes - ask them to give you a thumbs up.

Tell them that you are going to call out the alphabet letter by letter and when you hit on the letter they want - to give you a thumbs up or squeeze your hand.

To make it easier - start by asking if the first letter is a vowel.

This helped my husband "talk" to us. Not everyone thinks to do this but it just might help you.
