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.

23. Effect of Low-Dose Supplementation of Arginine Vasopressin on Need for Blood Product Transfusions in Patients With Trauma and Hemorrhagic Shock: A Randomized Clinical Trial (Abstract)

Effect of Low-Dose Supplementation of Arginine Vasopressin on Need for Blood Product Transfusions in Patients With Trauma and Hemorrhagic Shock: A Randomized Clinical Trial Current therapies for traumatic blood loss focus on hemorrhage control and blood volume replacement. Severe hemorrhagic shock, however, is associated with a state of arginine vasopressin (AVP) deficiency, and supplementation of this hormone may decrease the need for blood products in resuscitation.To determine whether low (...) -dose supplementation of AVP in patients with trauma (hereinafter referred to as trauma patients) and with hemorrhagic shock decreases their need for transfused blood products during resuscitation.This randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial included adult trauma patients (aged 18-65 years) who received at least 6 U of any blood product within 12 hours of injury at a single urban level 1 trauma center from May 1, 2013, through May 31, 2017.

Intranasal sufentanil versus intravenous morphine for acute severe trauma pain: A double-blind randomized non-inferiority study Intravenous morphine (IVM) is the most common strong analgesic used in trauma, but is associated with a clear time limitation related to the need to obtain an access route. The intranasal (IN) route provides easy administration with a fast peak action time due to high vascularization and the absence of first-pass metabolism. We aimed to determine whether IN sufentanil

29. External validation of a clinical prediction rule for very low risk pediatric blunt abdominal trauma (Abstract)

External validation of a clinical prediction rule for very low risk pediatric blunt abdominal trauma Computed tomography (CT) is frequently used to identify intra-abdominal injuries in children with blunt abdominal trauma (BAT). The Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) proposed a prediction rule to identify children with BAT who are at very low risk for clinically-important intra-abdominal injuries (CIIAI) in whom CT can be avoided.To determine the sensitivity (...) of this prediction rule in identifying patients at very low risk for CIIAI in our pediatric trauma registry.Retrospective review of our institutional trauma registry to identify patients with CIIAI. CIIAI included cases resulting in death, therapeutic intervention at laparotomy, angiographic embolization of intra-abdominal arterial bleeding, blood transfusion for intra-abdominal hemorrhage, and administration of intravenous fluids for two or more nights for pancreatic or gastrointestinal injuries.

As such, a good clinical decision rule with high sensitivity to rule out C-spine injuries was much needed. Prior to the development of the CCR, the NEXUS criteria

37. Evaluation and comparison of different prehospital triage scores of trauma patients on in-hospital mortality (Abstract)

Evaluation and comparison of different prehospital triage scores of trauma patients on in-hospital mortality Introduction: Several prehospital major trauma patient triage scores have been developed, the triage revised trauma score (T-RTS), Vittel criteria, Mechanism/Glasgow Coma Scale/Age/Systolic blood pressure score (MGAP), and the new trauma score (NTS). These scoring schemes allow a rapid and accurate prognostic assessment of the severity of potential lesions. The aim of our study (...) was to compare these scores with in-hospital mortality predictions in a cohort of consecutive trauma patients admitted in a Level 1 trauma center. Materials: Between 2013 and 2016, 1,112 patients were admitted to the "major trauma" spinneret of a Level 1 trauma center in the south of France. All prehospital data needed to calculate the T-RTS, Vittel criteria, the MGAP score, and the NTS were collected. The main evaluation criterion was in-hospital mortality at 30 days for all causes.

Mental health outcomes after major trauma in Ontario: a population-based analysis Major injury continues to be a common source of morbidity and mortality; improving the functional recovery of survivors of major trauma requires a better understanding of the mental health outcomes that may occur in this population. We assessed the association between major trauma and the development of a new mental health diagnosis or death by suicide.We completed a population-based, self-controlled, longitudinal (...) cohort analysis using linked administrative data on patients treated for major trauma in Ontario between 2005 and 2010. All survivors were included and composite rates of mental health diagnoses during inpatient admissions were compared between the 5 years after injury and the 5 years before injury, using Poisson regression with generalized estimating equations. The incidence of suicide was calculated for the 5 years after injury. Risk factors for suicide were calculated using Cox proportional hazard
