Does effective oral care improve patient experience and prevent ventilator acquired pneumonia while in ICU.

Does effective oral care improve patient experience and prevent ventilator acquired pneumonia while in ICU.

Rapid evidence assessment: AIM: To critically discuss the evidence of effective oral hygiene, reducing the incidence of ventilator acquired pneumonia. Objectives: • To classify the significance of ventilator acquired pneumonia. • To analyse the mechanical significance of oral care for this cohort of patients. • To compare the significance between mechanical oral care (toothbrushing) and chlorehedine. • To construct a recommendation for practice to reduce the incidence of ventilator acquired pneumonia.
