The effect of oral care with sodium bicarbonate-normal saline solution and tantum solution on the stomatitis and oral comfort patients receiving chemotherapy
Purpose: This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate-normal saline solution with that of tantum solution on the oral care for patients receiving chemotherapy. Methods: There were participants who were randomly assigned to either saline or tantum solution group. WHO oral toxicity scale was used to measure stomatitis and Beck’s subjective oral discomfort scale was used to evaluate oral comfort. Data was collected from July to December 2014. Results: There were no statistical differences in the status of stomatitis (F=.809, p=.639) and the levels of oral comfort (F=.809, p=.498) between two group. Conclusion: The findings suggest that patients receiving chemotherapy need intensive oral care at the beginning stage of treatment. In addition, a sodium bicarbonate-normal saline solution is recommended instead of tantum solution that causes more discomfort in order to prevent stomatitis.
