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.

1. Vibroacoustic stimulation for fetal assessment in labour in the presence of a nonreassuring fetal heart rate trace. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Vibroacoustic stimulation for fetal assessment in labour in the presence of a nonreassuring fetal heart rate trace. Fetal vibroacoustic stimulation (VAS) is a simple, non-invasive technique where a device is placed on the maternal abdomen over the region of the fetal head and sound is emitted at a predetermined level for several seconds. It is hypothesised that the resultant startle reflex in the fetus and subsequent fetal heart rate (FHR) acceleration or transient tachycardia following VAS (...) provide reassurance of fetal well-being. This technique has been proposed as a tool to assess fetal well-being in the presence of a nonreassuring cardiotocographic (CTG) trace during the first and second stages of labour.To evaluate the clinical effectiveness and safety of VAS in the assessment of fetal well-being during labour, compared with mock or no stimulation for women with a singleton pregnancy exhibiting a nonreassuring FHR pattern.We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's

2. The 5-tier system of assessing fetal heart rate tracings is superior to the 3-tier system in identifying fetal acidemia (Abstract)

The 5-tier system of assessing fetal heart rate tracings is superior to the 3-tier system in identifying fetal acidemia Electronic fetal heart rate monitoring was developed to identify fetuses at risk of acidemia for intervention before adverse outcomes. Our objective was to compare the 3-tier system with a 5-tier system in evaluation of fetal acidemia.Retrospective case-control study of patients with a fetal arterial pH <7 matched to the next birth that resulted in a pH >7.2. Tracings were (...) categorized into 3- and 5-tier systems by a single reviewer. Sensitivities and specificities were calculated for each.Twenty-four cases and 24 controls were identified. The sensitivity for an orange or red tracing was higher than for category III, with more of these in the pH <7 group compared with controls (P ≤ .001). There were significantly more green, blue, and yellow tracings in the normal pH group compared with the pH <7 group (P = .033, P = .008, P = .023), respectively.The 5-tier system had
