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.

523. Work stress and risk of cardiovascular mortality: prospective cohort study of industrial employees.

Work stress and risk of cardiovascular mortality: prospective cohort study of industrial employees. OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between work stress, according to the job strain model and the effort-reward imbalance model, and the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. Baseline examination in 1973 determined cases of cardiovascular disease, behavioural and biological risks, and stressful characteristics of work. Biological risks were measured at 5 (...) at the 5 year follow up. Effort-reward imbalance predicted increased body mass index at the 10 year follow up. CONCLUSIONS: High job strain and effort-reward imbalance seem to increase the risk of cardiovascular mortality. The evidence from industrial employees suggests that attention should be paid to the prevention of work stress.

524. Endothelial function and oxidative stress in renovascular hypertension.

Endothelial function and oxidative stress in renovascular hypertension. BACKGROUND: It has been reported that renovascular hypertension activates the renin-angiotensin system, leading to an increase in oxidative stress. We sought to determine whether renal-artery angioplasty improves endothelial dysfunction in patients with renovascular hypertension through a reduction in oxidative stress. METHODS: We evaluated the response of forearm blood flow to acetylcholine, an endothelium-dependent (...) in response to isosorbide dinitrate was similar in the two groups. Angioplasty decreased systolic and diastolic blood pressures, forearm vascular resistance, and urinary excretion of 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine and serum malondialdehyde-modified low-density lipoprotein (LDL), indexes of oxidative stress. After angioplasty, the mean (+/-SD) forearm blood flow in response to acetylcholine was increased in the patients with renovascular hypertension (19.3+/-6.8 vs. 29.6+/-7.1 ml per minute per 100 ml, P

525. The causal links between stress and burnout in a longitudinal study of UK doctors.

The causal links between stress and burnout in a longitudinal study of UK doctors. Burnout and stress are common, linked problems in health-care workers. We aimed to clarify their causal associations. We assessed stress and the three components of burnout (emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation, and low personal accomplishment) using structural equation modelling in a 3-year longitudinal study of a representative sample of 331 UK doctors. Emotional exhaustion and stress showed reciprocal (...) causation: high levels of emotional exhaustion caused stress (beta=0 189), and high levels of stress caused emotional exhaustion (beta=0 175). High levels of personal accomplishment increased stress levels (beta=0 080), whereas depersonalisation lowered stress levels (beta=-0 105).

Stressful life experiences and risk of relapse of breast cancer: observational cohort study. OBJECTIVE: To confirm, using an observational cohort design, the relation between severely stressful life experiences and relapse of breast cancer found in a previous case-control study. DESIGN: Prospective follow up for five years of a cohort of women newly diagnosed as having breast cancer, collecting data on stressful life experiences, depression, and biological prognostic factors. SETTING: NHS (...) risk of recurrence in women who had had one or more severely stressful life experiences in the year before diagnosis compared with women who did not (hazard ratio 1.01, 95% confidence interval 0.58 to 1.74, P=0.99). Women who had had one or more severely stressful life experiences in the 5 years after diagnosis had a lower risk of recurrence (0.52, 0.29 to 0.95, P=0.03) than those who did not. CONCLUSION: These data do not confirm an earlier finding from a case-control study that severely stressful

Psychological stress and cardiovascular disease: empirical demonstration of bias in a prospective observational study of Scottish men. OBJECTIVES: To examine the association between self perceived psychological stress and cardiovascular disease in a population where stress was not associated with social disadvantage. DESIGN: Prospective observational study with follow up of 21 years and repeat screening of half the cohort 5 years from baseline. Measures included perceived psychological stress (...) : Both prevalence and incidence of angina increased with increasing perceived stress (fully adjusted odds ratio for incident angina, high versus low stress 2.66, 95% confidence interval 1.61 to 4.41; P for trend <0.001). Prevalence and incidence of ischaemia showed weak trends in the opposite direction. High stress was associated with a higher rate of admissions to hospital generally and for admissions related to cardiovascular disease and psychiatric disorders (fully adjusted rate ratios for any

536. Psychological debriefing for preventing post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Psychological debriefing for preventing post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). BACKGROUND: Over approximately the last last fifteen years early psychological interventions such as psychological 'debriefing' have been increasingly used to treat psychological trauma. While these intervention have become popular and their use spread to several settings - efficacy had largely not been tested empirically. In 1997 a systematic review of single session psychological "debriefing" was undertaken (...) and this subsequently became a protocol and Cochrane Review published in 1998 (Issue2). This update forms the first substantive update of the original review. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of brief psychological debriefing for the management of psychological distress after trauma, and the prevention of post traumatic stress disorder.

A national survey of stress reactions after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. BACKGROUND: People who are not present at a traumatic event may also experience stress reactions. We assessed the immediate mental health effects of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. METHODS: Using random-digit dialing three to five days after September 11, we interviewed a nationally representative sample of 569 U.S. adults about their reactions to the terrorist attacks and their perceptions (...) of their children's reactions. RESULTS: Forty-four percent of the adults reported one or more substantial stress symptoms; 91 percent had one or more symptoms to at least some degree. Respondents throughout the country reported stress syndromes. They coped by talking with others (98 percent), turning to religion (90 percent), participating in group activities (60 percent), and making donations (36 percent).
