Preventing hospital-acquired pneumonia could be as easy as brushing your teeth. The recommendations are simple, powerful and cheap.
A recent article from NBC News outlines why it’s so important to keep your mouth clean and the simple steps you can take to prevent hospital-acquired pneumonia.
“To most patients, a useless hospital toothbrush would be a mild inconvenience. But to Giuliano, a nursing professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, it was a reminder of a pervasive “blind spot” in U.S. hospitals: the stunning consequences of unbrushed teeth.”
Brushing your teeth regularly has been shown to be highly effective at preventing hospital-acquired pneumonia. Hospitals are killing thousands of patients because they don't give patients toothbrushes, but they should.
This is yet another sign that we don't yet fully understand the importance of oral hygiene.
In this article from Harvard Health Publishing, a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, scientists found that good oral care can “lessen the burden of heart disease, diabetes, other conditions”.
These articles point out a major benefit of Nada toothbrush: good oral care shouldn't come down to whether or not you forgot to pick up a toothbrush the last time you were at the grocery store.
