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.

The aim of this study (...) was to develop a score to predict the initial resuscitation outcome-the RACA (ROSC after cardiac arrest) score. Based on 5471 prospectively registered out-of-hospital CAs patients between 1998 and 2008 within the German Resuscitation Registry, calculation of the RACA score was performed by multivariate logistic regression analysis with ROSC as the outcome variable. The probability of ROSC was defined as 1/(1 + e(-X)), where X is the weighted sum of independent factors. Additional 2218 patients documented

February 2, 2011 By Brandon Oberweis, MD Faculty Peer Reviewed Case Report : A 65-year-old male with a past medical history significant for NYHA class IV heart failure was found by his wife to be unresponsive. Emergency Medical Services was subsequently called and upon arrival, initiated (...) chest compressions and defibrillation for cardiac arrest secondary to ventricular fibrillation. Intravenous access was obtained and despite two episodes of defibrillation, the patient remained in ventricular fibrillation. The patient was given one dose of 40 U of vasopressin followed by 1 mg epinephrine every 3-5 minutes for the persistence of ventricular fibrillation. The patient was transported to the local hospital for further medical management. In the setting of pulseless cardiac arrest

213. Ventricular Tachyarrhythmias after Cardiac Arrest in Public versus at Home.

Ventricular Tachyarrhythmias after Cardiac Arrest in Public versus at Home. BACKGROUND: The incidence of ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia as the first recorded rhythm after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest has unexpectedly declined. The success of bystander-deployed automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in public settings suggests that this may be the more common initial rhythm when out-of-hospital cardiac arrest occurs in public. We conducted a study to determine (...) whether the location of the arrest, the type of arrhythmia, and the probability of survival are associated. METHODS: Between 2005 and 2007, we conducted a prospective cohort study of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in adults in 10 North American communities. We assessed the frequencies of ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia and of survival to hospital discharge for arrests at home as compared with arrests in public. RESULTS: Of 12,930 evaluated out-of-hospital cardiac arrests
