What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

6. Sleep extension reduces fatigue in healthy, normally-sleeping young adults. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Sleep extension reduces fatigue in healthy, normally-sleeping young adults. To assess the effects of one week of sleep extension on mood, fatigue and subjective sleepiness in normal-sleeping young adults.Twenty-seven adults (age 24.4±5.4 years, 11 female) participated. At-home baseline sleep/wake patterns were recorded with wrist actigraphy for 14 days. This was followed by two nights of in-lab baseline sleep with 8 hours time in bed (TIB), then 7 nights with TIB extended to 10 hours (2100-0700 (...) hours). Fatigue, mood, and sleepiness were assessed following the 2nd and 9th nights of in-laboratory sleep (i.e., 2 nights with 8hTIB and 7 nights with 10 hours TIB, respectively) using the Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metric and Karolinska Sleepiness Scale. Paired t-tests were used to compare mood, fatigue, and sleepiness ratings between conditions.At-home wrist actigraphy revealed a mean nightly total sleep time (TST) of 7.53 +/- 0.88 hours of sleep per night.

7. The role of sleep deprivation and fatigue in the perception of task difficulty and use of heuristics. Full Text available with Trip Pro

The role of sleep deprivation and fatigue in the perception of task difficulty and use of heuristics. This study investigated the effects of sleep deprivation on perception of task difficulty and use of heuristics (mental shortcuts) compared to naturally-experienced sleep at home. Methods: Undergraduate students were screened and assigned through block-random assignment to Naturally-Experienced Sleep (NES; n=19) or Total Sleep Deprivation (TSD; n=20). The next morning, reported fatigue (...) with a favorable review as poor quality. Those in Total Sleep Deprivation who chose more difficult math problems made this selection to finish the task more quickly in findings approaching significance, indicating use of the speed-accuracy trade-off heuristic. Collapsed across conditions, self-reported fatigue predicted greater perceived difficulty in both the reading task and a visuo-motor task, higher quality rating for the attractive consumer item, and lower quality rating for the unattractive consumer item

9. Effectiveness of e-health based self-management to improve cancer-related fatigue, self-efficacy and quality of life in cancer patients: systematic review and meta-analysis (Abstract)

Effectiveness of e-health based self-management to improve cancer-related fatigue, self-efficacy and quality of life in cancer patients: systematic review and meta-analysis To integrate the overall effect of e-health based self-management on cancer-related fatigue (CRF), self-efficacy, and quality of life (QOL) among adult cancer patients.A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.We researched PubMed, Cumulative Index Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Cochrane (...) , but no statistically significant improvement on the QOL. Meanwhile, subgroup analysis indicated that e-health based self-management had a larger effect on fatigue compared with usual care/waiting list control.E-health based self-management is effective for CRF and self-efficacy, but not the QOL. More high-quality randomized control trials are warranted to confirm these conclusions.Results showed e-health could improve fatigue and self-efficacy but not the QOL. Health providers could take into the various factors

10. Exercise therapy for chronic fatigue syndrome. (Abstract)

Exercise therapy for chronic fatigue syndrome. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) is a serious disorder characterised by persistent postexertional fatigue and substantial symptoms related to cognitive, immune and autonomous dysfunction. There is no specific diagnostic test, therefore diagnostic criteria are used to diagnose CFS. The prevalence of CFS varies by type of diagnostic criteria used. Existing treatment strategies primarily aim to relieve symptoms (...) and improve function. One treatment option is exercise therapy.The objective of this review was to determine the effects of exercise therapy for adults with CFS compared with any other intervention or control on fatigue, adverse outcomes, pain, physical functioning, quality of life, mood disorders, sleep, self-perceived changes in overall health, health service resources use and dropout.We searched the Cochrane Common Mental Disorders Group controlled trials register, CENTRAL, and SPORTDiscus up to May

Equivalent hip stem fixation by Hi-Fatigue G and Palacos R + G bone cement: a randomized radiostereometric controlled trial of 52 patients with 2 years` follow-up Background and purpose - Long-term fixation of cemented femoral stems relies on several factors including cement adhesion and fatigue. Hi-Fatigue is a newer third-generation bone cement with low-viscosity properties at room temperature, good mechanical strength, and stable bone-cement interface in a laboratory testing environment (...) . Palacos bone cement has excellent 10-year survival and is considered gold standard. We compared stem subsidence after fixation with Hi-Fatigue and Palacos bone cements using radiostereometry. Patients and methods - In a patient-blinded randomized controlled trial, 52 patients (30 women) at mean age 76 years (71-87) with osteoarthrosis and no osteoporosis received Hi-Fatigue G or Palacos R + G cement fixation of collarless, polished, double-tapered stems (CPT).

Existing drugs for rheumatoid arthritis may also improve associated fatigue Existing drugs for rheumatoid arthritis may also improve associated fatigue Discover Portal Discover Portal Existing drugs for rheumatoid arthritis may also improve associated fatigue Published on 23 August 2016 doi: Biological treatments for moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis appear to reduce fatigue as well as other symptoms. Although existing studies looking at effectiveness have focused on symptoms such as pain (...) , their combined results suggest this additional benefit. Biological treatments work by reducing the joint inflammation and destruction associated with the condition, but to date it has been uncertain if this could affect fatigue. Fatigue was not a main outcome in any of the included studies in this Cochrane review. The way it was measured and reported varied between studies, making it harder to compare findings. Overall, these drugs seem to give a small to moderate reduction in fatigue, which may
