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.

Therapeutic hypothermia after paediatric cardiac arrest: Pooled randomized controlled trials Separate trials to evaluate therapeutic hypothermia after paediatric cardiac arrest for out-of-hospital and in-hospital settings reported no statistically significant differences in survival with favourable neurobehavioral outcome or safety compared to therapeutic normothermia. However, larger sample sizes might detect smaller clinical effects. Our aim was to pool data from identically conducted trials (...) of blood-product use, infection, and serious cardiac arrhythmia adverse events, and 28-day mortality, did not differ between groups.Analysis of combined data from two paediatric cardiac arrest targeted temperature management trials including both in-hospital and out-of-hospital cases revealed that hypothermia, as compared with normothermia, did not confer a significant benefit in survival with favourable functional outcome at one year.Copyright © 2018 Elsevier B.V.

Effectiveness of antiarrhythmic drugs for shockable cardiac arrest: A systematic review The purpose of this systematic review is to provide up-to-date evidence on effectiveness of antiarrhythmic drugs for shockable cardiac arrest to help inform the 2018 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation Consensus on Science with Treatment Recommendations.A search was conducted in electronic databases Medline, Embase, and Cochrane Library from inception to August 15, 2017.Of the 9371 citations (...) , the results showed a significant increase for lidocaine compared with placebo (RR = 1.16; 95% CI, 1.03-1.29, p = 0.01).The high level evidence supporting the use of antiarrhythmic drugs during CPR for shockable cardiac arrest is limited and showed no benefit for critical outcomes of survival at hospital discharge, survival with favorable neurological function and long-term survival. Future high quality research is needed to confirm these findings and also to evaluate the role of administering

The delivery of high quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) during (...) cardiac arrest is a key component of clinical care. The delivery of high quality CPR is associated with improved survival outcomes. Unfortunately, many studies have demonstrated that providers consistent struggle to provide guideline compliant CPR during cardiac arrest care 1 , 2 . The formula for survival in cardiac arrest outlines three key components that contribute to survival outcomes: medical science, educational efficiency, and local implementation 3 .

For all (...) the outcomes, median estimate of odds ratio (OR) from the posterior distribution with corresponding 95% credible interval (Cr I) was calculated.

Mechanical versus manual chest compressions for cardiac arrest. Mechanical chest compression devices have been proposed to improve the effectiveness of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).To assess the effectiveness of resuscitation strategies using mechanical chest compressions versus resuscitation strategies using standard manual chest compressions with respect to neurologically intact survival in patients who suffer cardiac arrest.On 19 August 2017 we searched the Cochrane Central Register (...) in this update. In total, we included 11 trials in the review, including data from 12,944 adult participants, who suffered either out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) or in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA). We excluded studies explicitly including patients with cardiac arrest caused by trauma, drowning, hypothermia and toxic substances. These conditions are routinely excluded from cardiac arrest intervention studies because they have a different underlying pathophysiology, require a variety of interventions
