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.

. GUIDELINES a. We recommend patients and their carers be provided with education and information about renal biopsies including reasons for its use, risks and complications, pre- and post-biopsy management with particular regard to psychological issues such as anxiety. The education and information provided should be in a format suited to their learning needs (1C). UNGRADED SUGGESTIONS FOR CLINICAL CARE We suggest healthcare providers consider following the process outlined in Figure 1 to establish (...) of 19 procedure by phone according to their needs and by mail, those in group B received a standard leaflet about the procedure. The women’s anxiety levels were measured pre and post education intervention using the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) as well as a short self-administered questionnaire to assess their knowledge. The patients in group A had significantly higher knowledge scores median (inter-quartile range) 4.0 (3.0 – 4.0) versus

A Pilot Study of Simulation Training in Difficult Bag Mask Ventilation Using a Computerized Patient Simulator. Bag mask ventilation (BMV) is fundamental to airway management. Simulation is effective in airway management training, but its effectiveness for difficult BMV training is less clear. We evaluated the difference between type of training (simulation vs on patients) and the pass rate on a post-test on patients.A single center pilot study was performed with 32 medical students randomized (...) to participate in difficult BMV training on simulators or patients. Pre- and post-training tests on the simulator and on patients were recorded. Surveys of trainee confidence level were collected. The primary goal was to estimate the difference between type of training (simulation vs on patients) and the pass rate on the post-test on patients with an improvement of 10% or more in passing rate considered as a meaningful improvement. Secondary outcomes included whether or not participants passed the simulator
[Nurse-led educational intervention in patients with atrial fibrillation discharged from the emergency department reduces complications and shortterm admissions]. To assess whether a nurse-led patienteducational intervention for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) discharged from the emergency department (ED) can improve the patients' understanding of arrhythmia and its treatment and reduce the number of complications and arrhythmia-related admissions.Prospective study of an intervention (...) %) than in the control group (24.2%) (P=.040). Fewer intervention patients had been admitted with heart failure at 30 days (0.8% vs 6.4% in the control group; P=.023); there were also fewer all-cause admissions at 90 days (11.2% vs 20.9%; P=.041).A nurse-led educational intervention on discharge from the ED improved patients' understanding of AF and decreased the number of complications, short-term admissions for heart failure, and mid-term all-cause admissions.
Investigating the Effect of Self-Care Training on Life Expectancy and Quality of Life in Patients with Gastrointestinal Cancer under Radiotherapy. A huge amount of the efforts made by health teams is dedicated to caring for cancer patients. This study has aimed to investigate the effect of self-care training on life expectancy and quality of life (QOL) in patients with gastrointestinal cancer who were under radiotherapy.In this clinical trial, 50 patients were selected using the block (...) randomization method. The intervention was performed at Ayatollah Khansari Hospital in Arak, Iran. The patients in the intervention group received three sessions of face-to-face training. The data collection tools included Schneider's Life Expectancy Questionnaire and EORTC QOLQ-C30. Data were analyzed by SPSS version 23.In the control group, 16 were male (64%) and 9 female (36%), and in the intervention group, 14 were male (56%) and 11 were female (44%). Before the intervention, the two groups were
The Effect of 10 Weeks Resistance Training on Cholesterol and Blood Triglyceride Levels of Patients with Fatty Liver Disease. The present study aims to consider the effect of 10 weeks resistance trainings on cholesterol and blood triglyceride (TG) levels of patients with having fatty liver, aged 50 to 60 in National Iranian South Oil Company (NISOC). This research is practical and its plan has been done experimentally with pretest and post-test on experimental and control groups. In this study (...) , 20 samples from 100 patients who referred to sonography clinic in NISOC with distinction of fatty liver were selected randomly and divided into two groups of control (n = 10) and experimental (n = 10). Cholesterol and blood trigly-ceride were measured as pretest. Test of normality for TG was (p = 0/200) by Kolmogorov-Smirnov and (p = 0/070) for cholesterol by Shapiro-Wilk test. After 10 weeks resistance trainings, the analysis and resolution of data were done by computer and SPSS (16) software
Training for Walking Efficiency With a Wearable Hip-Assist Robot in Patients With Stroke: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial Background and Purpose- The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of gait training with a newly developed wearable hip-assist robot on locomotor function and efficiency in patients with chronic stroke. Methods- Twenty-eight patients with stroke with hemiparesis were initially enrolled, and 26 patients completed the randomized controlled trial (14 (...) parameters (P<0.05). Cardiopulmonary metabolic efficiency was strongly correlated with gait symmetry ratio in the experimental group (P<0.01). Conclusions- Gait training with Gait Enhancing and Motivating System was effective for improving locomotor function and cardiopulmonary metabolic energy efficiency during walking in patients with stroke. These findings suggest that robotic locomotor training can be adopted for rehabilitation of patients with stroke with gait disorders. Clinical Trial Registration
