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.

Periodic limb movement disorder Periodic limb movement disorder - Symptoms, diagnosis and treatment | BMJ Best Practice You'll need a subscription to access all of BMJ Best Practice Search  Periodic limb movement disorder Last reviewed: February 2019 Last updated: March 2018 Summary Defined as a periodic limb movements of sleep index (PLMS-I) of 5 or more that is associated with disturbed sleep and excessive daytime sleepiness. The diagnosis is confirmed by polysomnography, and other causes (...) of sleep-wake disturbance must be excluded. The PLMS-I is used to determine the frequency of periodic limb movements of sleep (PLMS) and is calculated as the number of PLMS per total hours of sleep time. PLMS are repetitive limb movements (mostly of the legs), occurring mainly during non-rapid eye movement (non-REM) sleep; they are characterised by dorsiflexion of the toes and ankles and occasionally flexion of the hip and knee. PLMS may arise in normal individuals, and their clinical significance

3. A genetic risk factor for periodic limb movements in sleep. (PubMed)

A genetic risk factor for periodic limb movements in sleep. The restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a common neurologic disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs. It is a major cause of sleep disruption. Periodic limb movements in sleep are detectable in most patients with RLS and represent an objective physiological metric.To search for sequence variants contributing to RLS, we performed a genomewide association study and two replication studies. To minimize phenotypic (...) heterogeneity, we focused on patients with RLS who had objectively documented periodic limb movements in sleep. We measured serum ferritin levels, since iron depletion has been associated with the pathogenesis of RLS.In an Icelandic discovery sample of patients with RLS and periodic limb movements in sleep, we observed a genomewide significant association with a common variant in an intron of BTBD9 on chromosome 6p21.2 (odds ratio, 1.8; P=2x10(-9)). This association was replicated in a second Icelandic
