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.

Intervention Trial (LIMIT-2) examined the effect of an intravenous regimen of magnesium sulphate in 2316 patients with suspected acute myocardial infarction. Treatment, according to a double-blind randomised protocol, was started with a loading injection, before any thrombolytic therapy, and continued with a maintenance infusion for a further 24 h. Cause-specific mortality of randomised patients has now been examined over 1.0-5.5 (mean 2.7) years of follow-up. Mortality rate from ischaemic

Magnesium has also been reported to protect myocardial tissue in experimental models of ischaemia and reperfusion.

We therefore conducted a randomised, double
