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.

Anesthesia

Clinical anesthesia is used to induce a temporary medical state of controlled unconsciousness, inducing a loss of sensation or awareness. There are three main types of anesthesia:

  • Local and Regional
  • General
  • Sedation

Anesthesia is primarily used during surgical procedures to block pain. While unconscious, blood flow and heart rate is monitored.

Research and development in the use of anesthesia has helped anesthesiologists in the progression of patient safety before and after surgery and medical procedures. The developments and research of anesthesia through the years has massively influences medicine and surgery today.

Case studies and clinical trials help aid researchers in the development of aftercare during postoperative recovery. Research is a vital part in the field of anesthesia, it allows anesthesiologists to improve the delivery of patient safety while unconscious.

175. Practice Advisory: FDA Warnings Regarding Use of General Anesthetics and Sedation Drugs in Young Children and Pregnant Women

in neuronal cell loss. In the "clinical studies" section of this summary, there are no data regarding pregnant women; there is only data on young children who were exposed to anesthetic agents. ACOG is unaware of data on pregnant women that support the FDA’s claims. Therefore, there are significant data limitations related to this warning. Clinical Application: Limitations and Concerns The broader clinical significance of these findings is not known. Pregnant women may undergo general anesthesia (...) for a nonobstetric surgical procedure or, in some instances, for delivery. When a nonobstetric surgery is performed during pregnancy, it is because it is medically indicated. When analgesia is needed for delivery (included cesarean delivery), it is usually regional analgesia that is used and not general anesthesia. In both circumstances, the likelihood that a pregnant woman, and thus an exposed fetus, would be vulnerable to a general anesthetic or sedative agent for an extended period would be extremely low
