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.

302. First documented rhythm and clinical outcome from in-hospital cardiac arrest among children and adults.

First documented rhythm and clinical outcome from in-hospital cardiac arrest among children and adults. CONTEXT: Cardiac arrests in adults are often due to ventricular fibrillation (VF) or pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VT), which are associated with better outcomes than asystole or pulseless electrical activity (PEA). Cardiac arrests in children are typically asystole or PEA. OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that children have relatively fewer in-hospital cardiac arrests associated (...) with VF or pulseless VT compared with adults and, therefore, worse survival outcomes. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: A prospective observational study from a multicenter registry (National Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) of cardiac arrests in 253 US and Canadian hospitals between January 1, 2000, and March 30, 2004. A total of 36,902 adults (> or =18 years) and 880 children (<18 years) with pulseless cardiac arrests requiring chest compressions, defibrillation, or both were assessed

The authors concluded that there was no evidence to support pre-hospital transcutaneous cardiac pacing in bradyasystolic cardiac arrest, while data on symptomatic bradycardia were inadequate to draw firm conclusions. The conclusions reflect the evidence presented and are likely to be reliable. Authors' objectives To determine the efficacy of pre-hospital transcutaneous cardiac pacing (TCP) in the management

Summary and Conclusions Technology and target group Sudden cardiac arrest is not uncommon as a complication of coronary heart disease (ischemic heart disease). Most cases of cardiac arrest occur out-of-hospital. In Sweden, approximately 10 000 people per year experience cardiac arrest. Treatment outcomes among this patient group have not improved substantially in the past 20 years. Only 4% of those affected are discharged alive from the hospital following

314. Quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation during in-hospital cardiac arrest.

Quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation during in-hospital cardiac arrest. CONTEXT: The survival benefit of well-performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is well-documented, but little objective data exist regarding actual CPR quality during cardiac arrest. Recent studies have challenged the notion that CPR is uniformly performed according to established international guidelines. OBJECTIVES: To measure multiple parameters of in-hospital CPR quality and to determine compliance (...) with published American Heart Association and international guidelines. DESIGN AND SETTING: A prospective observational study of 67 patients who experienced in-hospital cardiac arrest at the University of Chicago Hospitals, Chicago, Ill, between December 11, 2002, and April 5, 2004.

315. Quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation during out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation during out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. CONTEXT: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidelines recommend target values for compressions, ventilations, and CPR-free intervals allowed for rhythm analysis and defibrillation. There is little information on adherence to these guidelines during advanced cardiac life support in the field. OBJECTIVE: To measure the quality of out-of-hospital CPR performed by ambulance personnel, as measured by adherence to CPR (...) guidelines. DESIGN AND SETTING: Case series of 176 adult patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest treated by paramedics and nurse anesthetists in Stockholm, Sweden, London, England, and Akershus, Norway, between March 2002 and October 2003. The defibrillators recorded chest compressions via a sternal pad fitted with an accelerometer and ventilations by changes in thoracic impedance between the defibrillator pads, in addition to standard event and electrocardiographic recordings.
