Effects of Oral Care in the Neuroscience ICU
Comprehensive Oral Care for the Intubated Neuroscience ICU Patient: A Comparison of the Safety and Efficacy Between 2 Protocols

The purpose of this study is to compare how effective different ways of mouth cleaning are for patients in a neuroscience intensive care unit with a breathing tube in their mouth.

Patients with neurological dysfunction requiring intubation and ventilation are at risk for developing ventilator acquired pneumonia. Several studies have suggested that oral hygiene plays a role in the subsequent development of pneumonia for patients in the intensive care unit requiring intubation and mechanical ventilation.

Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Ventilator Associated Pneumonia
  • Oral Hygiene

    Patients in this arm will receive standard oral care with manual brushes and routine oral hygiene products twice a day
  • Procedure: Comprehensive Oral Care
    Patients will receive a comprehensive oral care protocol using mechanical brushes and oral care products formulated for patients with a dry mouth twice a day
  • Active Comparator: A
    Standard Oral Care
    Intervention: Procedure: Standard Oral Care
