The samples were 100 samples divided into 2 groups. The control group consisted of 50 regular caregivers. And50 experimental groups. The subjects were given ice-chips before chemotherapy for 5 minutes and continued for 30 minutes for 5 consecutive days. Evaluation of oral mucositis before chemotherapy. And oralmucositis after chemotherapy. From the new scoring system of Sonis, the authors of the tool adapted from the WHO index and the National Cancer Institute system for the observation of oral mucositis. Suvarn Charoensrichsawat.
