Patient Care. Approaches to the problem of discomfort from thirst and dryness of the mouth include careful distribution of the fluid intake over the entire 24 hours in small, frequent drinks; giving oral medications at mealtime, when not contraindicated, so as to allow sips of liquid at other times; providing cold water for rinsing the mouth without swallowing between drinks; giving hard candy and chewing gum; and allowing patients to choose the fluids they prefer to drink. Frequent mouth care with a refreshing mouthwash also is helpful.
