PICO QUESTION
Introduction
PICO QUESTION – In older women (P) with osteoarthritis is fish oil (I) an effective
treatment option (O)?
The PICO question is to address whether there is any valid evidence that fish oil is
effective in treating osteoarthritis. The above case compares between those who take fish oil as a
remedy to osteoarthritis and those who do not rely on the fish oil as in Peggy. The question
actually aims to focus on the clinical evidence that supports the use of the fish oil for arthritis. It
has been found that a huge number of Australian populations have been using fish oil for the
curing of Arthritis.
It has been found that in fish oil there are two types of omega -3 fatty acids, which are
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Researches have found that
these omega 3 fatty acids can lessen the inflammation in the joints, which normally causes
swelling and pain. Although some evidences show that the acids can suppress the body’s
immune system.
