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.

Hypothermia for traumatic head injury. BACKGROUND: Hypothermia has been used in the treatment of head injury for many years. Encouraging results from small trials and laboratory studies led to renewed interest in the area and some larger trials. OBJECTIVES: To estimate the effect of mild hypothermia for traumatic head injury on mortality and long-term functional outcome complications. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Injuries Group Specialised Register, Current Controlled Trials MetaRegister (...) of trials, Zetoc, Web of Knowledge; Science Citation Index [expanded], CENTRAL, MEDLINE and EMBASE. We handsearched conference proceedings and checked reference lists of relevant articles. The search was updated on 23 May 2008. SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomised controlled trials of hypothermia to a maximum of 35 degrees C for at least 12 hours versus control in patients with any closed traumatic head injury requiring hospitalisation. Two authors independently assessed all trials. DATA COLLECTION
