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.

144. Integrating health interventions for women, newborn babies, and children: a framework for action.

Integrating health interventions for women, newborn babies, and children: a framework for action. For women and children, especially those who are poor and disadvantaged, to benefit from primary health care, they need to access and use cost-effective interventions for maternal, newborn, and child health. The challenge facing weak health systems is how to deliver such packages. Experiences from countries such as Iran, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and China, and from projects in countries like Tanzania

145. Survival of extremely premature babies in a geographically defined population: prospective cohort study of 1994-9 compared with 2000-5.

Survival of extremely premature babies in a geographically defined population: prospective cohort study of 1994-9 compared with 2000-5. OBJECTIVE: To assess changes in survival for infants born before 26 completed weeks of gestation. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study in a geographically defined population. SETTING: Former Trent health region of the United Kingdom. SUBJECTS: All infants born at 22+0 to 25+6 weeks' gestation to mothers living in the region. Terminations were excluded but all other (...) births of babies alive at the onset of labour or the delivery process were included. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Outcome for all infants was categorised as stillbirth, death without admission to neonatal intensive care, death before discharge from neonatal intensive care, and survival to discharge home in two time periods: 1994-9 and 2000-5 inclusive. RESULTS: The proportion of infants dying in delivery rooms was similar in the two periods, but a significant improvement was seen in the number of infants

147. Every death counts: use of mortality audit data for decision making to save the lives of mothers, babies, and children in South Africa.

Every death counts: use of mortality audit data for decision making to save the lives of mothers, babies, and children in South Africa. South Africa is one of the few developing countries with a national confidential inquiry into maternal deaths. 164 health facilities obtain audit data for stillbirths and neonatal deaths, and a new audit network does so for child deaths. Three separate reports have been published, providing valuable information about avoidable causes of death for mothers (...) , babies, and children. These reports make health-system recommendations, many of which overlap and are intertwined with the scarcity of progress in addressing HIV/AIDS. The leaders of these three reports have united to prioritise actions to save the lives of South Africa's mothers, babies, and children. The country is off-track for the health-related Millennium Development Goals. Mortality in children younger than 5 years has increased, whereas maternal and neonatal mortality remain constant

151. Mother and baby units for schizophrenia.

Mother and baby units for schizophrenia. BACKGROUND: Mother and baby units (MBUs) are recommended, in the UK, as an optimal site for treating post partum psychoses. Naturalistic studies suggest poor outcomes for mothers and their children if admission is needed during the first year after birth, but the evidence for the effectiveness of MBUs in addressing the problems faced by both mothers with mental illness and their babies is unclear. OBJECTIVES: To review the effects of mother and baby (...) units for mothers with schizophrenia or psychoses needing admission during the first year after giving birth, and their children, in comparison to standard care on a ward without a mother and baby unit. SEARCH STRATEGY: We undertook electronic searches of the Cochrane Schizophrenia Group's Register (June 2006). SELECTION CRITERIA: We included all randomised clinical trials comparing placement on a mother and baby unit compared to any other standard care without attachment to such a unit. DATA

Perinatal mortality and congenital anomalies in babies of women with type 1 or type 2 diabetes in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland: population based study. OBJECTIVE: To provide perinatal mortality and congenital anomaly rates for babies born to women with type 1 or type 2 diabetes in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. DESIGN: National population based pregnancy cohort. SETTING: 231 maternity units in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. PARTICIPANTS: 2359 pregnancies to women with type (...) %). Perinatal mortality in babies of women with diabetes was 31.8/1000 births. Perinatal mortality was comparable in babies of women with type 1 (31.7/1000 births) and type 2 diabetes (32.3/1000) and was nearly four times higher than that in the general maternity population. 141 major congenital anomalies were confirmed in 109 offspring. The prevalence of major congenital anomaly was 46/1000 births in women with diabetes (48/1000 births for type 1 diabetes; 43/1000 for type 2 diabetes), more than double

157. Transplantation of umbilical-cord blood in babies with infantile Krabbe's disease.

Transplantation of umbilical-cord blood in babies with infantile Krabbe's disease. BACKGROUND: Infantile Krabbe's disease produces progressive neurologic deterioration and death in early childhood. We hypothesized that transplantation of umbilical-cord blood from unrelated donors before the development of symptoms would favorably alter the natural history of the disease among newborns in whom the disease was diagnosed because of a family history. We compared the outcomes among these newborns (...) with the outcomes among infants who underwent transplantation after the development of symptoms and with the outcomes in an untreated cohort of affected children. METHODS: Eleven asymptomatic newborns (age range, 12 to 44 days) and 14 symptomatic infants (age range, 142 to 352 days) with infantile Krabbe's disease underwent transplantation of umbilical-cord blood from unrelated donors after myeloablative chemotherapy. Engraftment, survival, and neurodevelopmental function were evaluated longitudinally for four

Audio recordings of consultations with doctors for parents of critically sick babies. BACKGROUND: Family centred care is an important part of neonatal intensive care. Ensuring effective communication in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is a challenge but is crucial to the implementation of family centred care. Providing parents in NICU with audiotape recordings of their conversations with neonatologists could promote effective communication. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review (...) was to assess the usefulness of providing parents of sick babies with audiotape recordings of their consultations with neonatologists. SEARCH STRATEGY: The standard search strategy of the Cochrane Neonatal Review Group was used. This included searches of electronic databases: Oxford Database of Perinatal Trials, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL, The Cochrane Library Issue 3, 2004), and MEDLINE (1966 - February 2004); and previous reviews including cross references and expert
