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.

Alpha-Stim AID for anxiety Alpha-Stim AID for anxiety Alpha-Stim AID for anxiety Medtech innovation briefing Published: 16 September 2019 www.nice.org.uk/guidance/mib193 pathways Summary Summary The technology technology described in this briefing is Alpha-Stim AID. It is used for treating anxiety, insomnia and depression. This briefing focuses only on anxiety. The inno innovativ vative aspect e aspect is that the device has a patented electrical wave pattern that is transmitted to the brain (...) disorders. They show that the Alpha-Stim AID is effective at reducing the level of anxiety and depression in patients diagnosed with anxiety disorders. K Ke ey uncertainties y uncertainties around the evidence are a lack of generalisability to the NHS and no evidence from randomised controlled trials on the long-term effect of the technology on treating people with anxiety disorders. The typical cost cost of a course of patient treatment with Alpha-Stim AID is £70. The company claims the technology

Interactivity in a Decision Aid: Findings From a Decision Aid to Technologically Enhance Shared Decision Making RCT Colorectal cancer screening (CRCS) remains underutilized. Decision aids (DAs) can increase patient knowledge, intent, and CRCS rates compared with "usual care," but whether interactivity further increases CRCS rate remains unknown.A two-armed RCT compared the effect of a web-based DA that interactively assessed patient CRC risk and clarified patient preference for specific CRCS

7. First aid glucose administration routes for symptomatic hypoglycaemia. (PubMed)

First aid glucose administration routes for symptomatic hypoglycaemia. Hypoglycaemia is a common occurrence in people with diabetes but can also result from an imbalance in glucose homeostasis in the absence of diabetes. The best enteral route for glucose administration for suspected hypoglycaemia in a first aid situation is unknown.To assess the effects of first aid glucose administration by any route appropriate for use by first-aid providers (buccal, sublingual, oral, rectal) for symptomatic (...) hypoglycaemia.We searched CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL as well as grey literature (records identified in the WHO ICTRP Search Portal, ClinicalTrials.gov and the EU Clinical Trials Register) up to July 2018. We searched reference lists of included studies retrieved by the above searches.We included studies involving adults and children with documented or suspected hypoglycaemia as well as healthy volunteers, in which glucose was administered by any enteral route appropriate for use by first-aid

8. Biomedical risk assessment as an aid for smoking cessation. (PubMed)

Biomedical risk assessment as an aid for smoking cessation. A possible strategy for increasing smoking cessation rates could be to provide smokers with feedback on the current or potential future biomedical effects of smoking using, for example, measurement of exhaled carbon monoxide (CO), lung function, or genetic susceptibility to lung cancer or other diseases.The main objective was to determine the efficacy of providing smokers with feedback on their exhaled CO measurement, spirometry (...) genetic susceptibility to lung cancer and measurement of CO only (RR 0.82, 95% CI 0.43 to 1.56; n = 189).There is little evidence about the effects of biomedical risk assessment as an aid for smoking cessation. The most promising results relate to spirometry and carotid ultrasound, where moderate-certainty evidence, limited by imprecision and risk of bias, did not detect a statistically significant benefit, but confidence intervals very narrowly missed one, and the point estimate favoured

9. PROTECT - Trial: A cluster RCT to study the effectiveness of a repositioning aid and tailored repositioning to increase repositioning compliance

PROTECT - Trial: A cluster RCT to study the effectiveness of a repositioning aid and tailored repositioning to increase repositioning compliance To study the effectiveness of tailored repositioning and a turning and repositioning system on: (a) nurses' compliance to repositioning frequencies; (b) body posture of patients after repositioning; (c) incidence of pressure ulcers and incontinence-associated dermatitis; (d) nurses' and patients' preferences, comfort and acceptability; and (e) budget (...) occurred. Both patients and nurses were positive about the intervention. Higher labour costs related to repositioning in bed were found in the control group.This was the first study investigating the effect of tailored repositioning and the use of a repositioning aid to increase nurses' compliance to repositioning. The results were in favour of the interventions yet demonstrating the importance of follow-up and education.This study is registered at https://clinicaltrials.gov/NCT02690753;NCT02690753.©

Hearing aids make communication easier for people with mild hearing loss Hearing aids make communication easier for people with mild hearing loss Discover Portal Discover Portal Hearing aids make communication easier for people with mild hearing loss Published on 19 December 2017 doi: Hearing aids for people with mild-to-moderate hearing loss make communication easier and improve listening ability. Quality of life improved alongside the improvements in hearing. There were no reports of adverse (...) effects for hearing aids. Hearing loss can have a far-reaching impact on people’s mental and physical health, taking a toll on their quality of life. It can be simply viewed as a natural part of ageing, but this review highlights the positive impact that hearing aids can have on conversation and socialisation before people’s hearing loss becomes more severe. Despite hearing loss being common, it can take on average ten years to get appropriate treatment. These findings suggest that raising public
