Select a randomized controlled trial (RCT) that is within the domain of nursing. Complete the following information thoroughly and completely. No yes or no responses accepted. It is also not acceptable to copy and paste information from the article as this does not demonstrate synthesis and understanding of the research design (there will be a 25-point penalty – even if you place this information in quotes and reference it). If you fail to present a RCT study, there will be no grade assigned as it does not meet the critical first step. You MUST submit a copy of the full article with this critique (no links accepted). You MUST use the form for submission.

A maximum of 10 points will be deducted for grammar and format as this affects quality and understanding of the information presented in this assignment. If the form is not used 10 points will be deducted.

I have uploaded the template that you will need to use along with the article that I have chosen. If you feel you have a better article then you can use another one.

My PICOT question is

Among the 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)
