The ongoing research focuses on comparing the efficacy of chlorhexidine mouthwash versus normal saline in preventing ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) among mechanically ventilated patients. The study aims to determine if normal saline can offer an equally beneficial preventive effect as chlorhexidine while being more cost-effective. The research seeks to contribute valuable insights into optimizing VAP prevention protocols for mechanically ventilated patients, potentially enhancing patient outcomes and healthcare resource utilization.

Intra-dyslectic exercise research, currently being conducted, aims to explore the potential benefits of engaging in physical activity during dialysis sessions for patients. As dialysis serves as a lifeline for those with compromised kidney function, optimizing their overall well-being during these sessions becomes crucial. By comparing metrics such as muscle strength, cardiovascular endurance, mood, and patient satisfaction, the study aims to establish a comprehensive understanding of how intra-dyslectic exercises may enhance the efficacy of dialysis and improve the overall patient experience.
