Defining a clinical question in terms of the specific patient problem aids the searcher in finding clinically relevant evidence in the literature. The PICO Model is a format to help define your question. A “well-built” question should include four or five parts, referred to as PICO(T) that identify the patient problem or population (P), intervention (I), comparison (C) outcome(s) (O) and when appropriate time (T). This assignment takes you through steps in formulating an answerable question that is relevant to your clinical practice.

Your PICOT question must be formulated as an intervention/treatment question and you must use the template provided for this assignment. Failure to use the required template will result in a grade of zero.

My PICO T question is formulated like this

Intubated Males in short stay ICU settings between the ages of 43 to 45 (P) how does the use of oral 0.2% Chlorhexidine every 8 hours (I) compared to use of normal saline (C)reduce the risk of ventilator associated pneumonia (O) within the duration of their hospital stay (T)

You can fine tune the PICOT question to make it easier for you.

I will upload the template that you need to use to submit your answers and the article pertaining to the pico-t question.
