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.

The only significant differences between these two groups were observed in Injury Severity Score ( P = 0.047) and Ps ( P = 0.007). In all patients, the balloons were successfully placed in 8.1 ± 3.3 min in the thoracic aorta, and a significant increase in systolic blood pressure was observed
Sarcopenia is a predictive factor for prolonged intensive care unit stays in highâ€energy blunt trauma patients 29123807 2018 11 13 2052-8817 3 4 2016 10 Acute medicine & surgery Acute Med Surg Sarcopenia is a predictive factor for prolonged intensive care unit stays in high-energy blunt trauma patients. 326-331 10.1002/ams2.195 Sarcopenia has been increasingly reported as a prognostic factor for outcome in settings such as cirrhosis, liver transplantation, and emergent surgery. We aimed (...) to elucidate the significance of sarcopenia in severe blunt trauma patients. We retrospectively analyzed 84 patients emergently admitted to the intensive care unit at Kyushu University Hospital (Fukuoka, Japan) from May 2012 to April 2015. We assessed the amount of skeletal muscle present according to computed tomography and its relevance to ventilation-free days, patients' length of stay in the intensive care unit, and 28-day mortality. Twenty-five (29.7%) patients were defined as sarcopenic. Sixteen

Nevertheless up to date no prospective randomised controlled trial has proven the superiority in preventing trauma when falling from a great height instead of a free fall. The aim of this prospective randomised controlled trial was to prove the effectiveness of a parachute when falling from great height. In this prospective randomised
Management of Cardiac Arrest due to Trauma ANZCOR Guideline 11.10.1 April 2016 Page 1 of 11 ANZCOR Guideline 11.10.1 Management of Cardiac Arrest due to Trauma Summary To whom does this guideline apply? This guideline applies to adult and paediatric patients in cardiac arrest, or peri-arrest, due to physical trauma. Specific isolated traumatic mechanisms such as near-hanging and burns are not addressed. Who is the audience for this guideline? This guideline applies to first-aiders, prehospital (...) clinicians and hospital teams. Recommendations The Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR) recommends: • Unless there are injuries obviously incompatible with life, attempted resuscitation of patients with cardiac arrest due to trauma is not futile and should be attempted. • The first priority in peri-arrest trauma patients is to stop any obvious bleeding. • Depending on the likely aetiology of the cardiac arrest, restoration of the circulating blood volume may have a higher

Spinal Immobilization Adverse Effects vs. Benefits in the Trauma Patient "Spinal Immobilization Adverse Effects vs. Benefits in the Trauma Patie" by Michael P. Duncan < > > > > > Title Author Date of Award Summer 8-13-2016 Degree Type Capstone Project Degree Name Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies First Advisor Brent Norris, MPAS, PA-C Second Advisor Annjanette Sommers, MS, PA-C Rights . Abstract Background Spinal Immobilization is a standard practice of preventing further injury (...) to trauma patients with suspected severe spinal injuries. Clinical providers employ spinal immobilization devices as soon as traumatic spinal injuries are suspected. The use of spinal immobilization devices is not benign and can cause adverse complications for the patient to include restrictive breathing, obstructed airway, pain, or even death. This review assesses the current evidence of adverse effects from spinal immobilization in trauma patients. Methods An exhaustive search of available literature

Trends in non-fatal agricultural injuries requiring trauma care 26693134 2018 12 13 2197-1714 2 1 2015 Injury epidemiology Inj Epidemiol Trends in non-fatal agricultural injuries requiring trauma care. 30 Efforts to control agricultural injuries have been underway for years. Yet, very little is known about their trends over time. We examined trends in non-fatal agricultural injuries through analyzing injuries reported in a state trauma registry. Using Iowa Trauma Registry data collected (...) by the Iowa Department of Public Health, we examined trends in non-fatal agricultural injuries reported by acute care hospitals accredited as Level I, II, and III Trauma Care Facilities from 2005 to 2013. Rate ratios and corresponding 95 % confidence intervals were used to examine the burden of non-fatal agricultural injuries across this period. Negative binomial regression was used to calculate the average annual change in agricultural injury rates over time. Joinpoint regression analysis was used

Although survival benefits have been shown at the population level, identification of patients most likely to benefit from HEMS transport is imperative to justify the risks and cost of this intervention.

Data were split into training and validation sets. Subjects were grouped by triage criteria
