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.

8. Protein supplementation of human milk for promoting growth in preterm infants. (Abstract)

Protein supplementation of human milk for promoting growth in preterm infants. Preterm infants require high protein intake to achieve adequate growth and development. Although breast milk feeding has many benefits for this population, the protein content is highly variable, and inadequate to support rapid infant growth. This is a 2020 update of a Cochrane Review first published in 1999.To determine whether protein-supplemented human milk compared with unsupplemented human milk, fed to preterm (...) infants, improves growth, body composition, cardio-metabolic, and neurodevelopmental outcomes, without significant adverse effects.We used the standard search strategy of Cochrane Neonatal to search Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL 2019, Issue 8) in the Cochrane Library and MEDLINE via PubMed on 23 August 2019.

The standard schedule of national immunization programs for infants may not be sufficient to protect extremely and very preterm infants.To evaluate the immunogenicity of routine vaccinations administered to preterm infants.A multicenter, prospective, observational cohort study of preterm infants stratified according to gestational age recruited from 8 hospitals across the Netherlands between October 2015 (...) and October 2017, with follow-up until 12 months of age (October 2018). In total, 296 premature infants were enrolled and compared with a control group of 66 healthy term infants from a 2011 study, immunized according to the same schedule with the same vaccines.Three primary doses of the diphtheria-tetanus toxoids-acellular pertussis-inactivated poliomyelitis-Haemophilus influenza type b-hepatitis B combination vaccine were given at 2, 3, and 4 months after birth followed by a booster at 11 months

10. Carbohydrate supplementation of human milk to promote growth in preterm infants. (Abstract)

Carbohydrate supplementation of human milk to promote growth in preterm infants. Preterm infants are born with low glycogen stores and require higher glucose intake to match fetal accretion rates. In spite of the myriad benefits of breast milk for preterm infants, it may not adequately meet the needs of these rapidly growing infants. Supplementing human milk with carbohydrates may help. However, there is a paucity of data on assessment of benefits or harms of carbohydrate supplementation (...) of human milk to promote growth in preterm infants.

Comprehensive care of the ambulatory child with cerebral palsy (GMFCS I and II): A Canadian perspective In Canada, cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability, affecting approximately 2 to 3 per 1000 individuals. Paediatricians are sure to encounter and care for children with CP and their families. The role of the general paediatrician in caring for a child with CP is crucial, from diagnosis to providing a ‘medical home’; from ensuring care coordination to delivering (...) anticipatory guidance and preventive health and wellness care. The CP Health and Wellness Record that accompanies this practice point can assist both practitioners and children’s families by exploring key areas of health, function, participation, and wellness. This record may be used alongside other evidence-based health promotion guides, such as the Rourke Baby Record and the Greig Health Record, to prompt clinicians caring for ambulatory children with CP (Gross Motor Function Classification System

15. Fat supplementation of human milk for promoting growth in preterm infants. (Abstract)

Fat supplementation of human milk for promoting growth in preterm infants. As preterm infants do not experience the nutrient accretion and rapid growth phase of the third trimester of pregnancy, they are vulnerable to postnatal nutritional deficits, including of fat. Consequently, they require higher fat intakes compared to their full term counterparts to achieve adequate growth and development. Human milk fat provides the major energy needs of the preterm infant and also contributes to several (...) metabolic and physiological functions. Although human milk has many benefits for this population, its fat content is highly variable and may be inadequate for their optimum growth and development. This is a 2020 update of a Cochrane Review last published in 2000.To determine whether supplementation of human milk with fat compared with unsupplemented human milk fed to preterm infants improves growth, body composition, cardio-metabolic, and neurodevelopmental outcomes without significant adverse

20. Postnatal corticosteroids to prevent or treat bronchopulmonary dysplasia in preterm infants

Postnatal corticosteroids to prevent or treat bronchopulmonary dysplasia in preterm infants Historically, postnatal corticosteroids have been used to prevent and treat bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in preterm infants. Administering dexamethasone to prevent BPD in the first 7 days post-birth has been associated with increasing risk for cerebral palsy, while early inhaled corticosteroids appear to be associated with an increased risk of mortality (...) . Neither medication is presently recommended to prevent BPD. New evidence suggests that prophylactic hydrocortisone, when initiated in the first 48 h post-birth, at a physiological dose, and in the absence of indomethacin, improves survival without BPD, with no adverse neurodevelopmental effects at 2 years. This therapy may be considered by clinicians for infants at highest risk for BPD. Routine dexamethasone therapy for all ventilator-dependent infants is not recommended, but after the first week
