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.

185. Sleep clinical record: an aid to rapid and accurate diagnosis of paediatric sleep disordered breathing Full Text available with Trip Pro

Sleep clinical record: an aid to rapid and accurate diagnosis of paediatric sleep disordered breathing Overnight polysomnography (PSG) is an expensive procedure which can only be used in a minority of cases, although it remains the gold standard for the diagnosis of sleep disordered breathing (SDB). The objective of this study was to develop a simple, PSG-validated tool to screen SDB, thus reducing the use of PSG. For every participant we performed PSG and a sleep clinical record was completed (...) . The sleep clinical record consists of three items: physical examination, subjective symptoms and clinical history. The clinical history analyses behavioural and cognitive problems. All three items were used to create a sleep clinical score (SCS). We studied 279 children, mean ± SD age 6.1 ± 3.1 years, 63.8% male; 27.2% with primary snoring and 72.8% with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) syndrome. The SCS was higher in the OSA syndrome group compared to the primary snoring group (8.1 ± 9.6 versus 0.4 ± 0.3

191. The medical use of cannabis for reducing morbidity and mortality in patients with HIV/AIDS. (Abstract)

The medical use of cannabis for reducing morbidity and mortality in patients with HIV/AIDS. The use of cannabis (marijuana) or of its psychoactive ingredient delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as a medicine has been highly contested in many settings.There have been claims that smoked or ingested cannabis, either in its natural form or artificial form (pharmaceutically manufactured drug such as dronabinol), improves the appetites of people with AIDS, results in weight gain and lifts mood, thus (...) improving the quality of life.The objectives of this review were to assess whether cannabis (in its natural or artificially produced form), either smoked or ingested, decreases the morbidity or mortality of patients infected with HIV.The search strategy was conducted to July 2012 and was based on that of the Cochrane HIV/AIDS Review Group. We searched the following databases: CENTRAL/CCTR, MEDLINE and EMBASE. In addition, searching was performed where necessary of journals, reference lists of articles
