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.

After reading Flood's paper on safe central venous access and noting the difficulties (...) clinicians find in probe stabilisation whilst performing dynamic intravenous access, we decided to share our teaching technique. The purpose of this correspondence is to highlight the 'afternoon tea technique' as a potential teaching method for probe stabilisation. It is hoped that this technique will improve the image quality in dynamic procedures and increase the success rate of ultrasound-guided intravenous access in clinical practice.
