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.

161. High vs. low oxygen therapy in patients with acute heart failure: HiLo-HF pilot trial. Full Text available with Trip Pro

High vs. low oxygen therapy in patients with acute heart failure: HiLo-HF pilot trial. Most patients with acute heart failure (AHF) are treated with supplemental oxygen during hospitalization. In this study, we investigated the effect of oxygen titrated to high vs. low pulse oximetry targets in patients hospitalized with AHF.In a pilot, open-label randomized controlled trial (RCT), 50 patients who were admitted with AHF were randomized to either high (≥96%) or low (90-92%) SpO2 targets. Oxygen (...) , -1253) pg/mL in the high SpO2 group and -2093 (-5692, -353) pg/mL in the low SpO2 group (P = 0.46), and the 72 h to baseline NT-proBNP ratio was similar between groups (0.7 vs. 0.6, P = 0.51). There were no differences between arms in change in dyspnoea VAS (P = 0.86), PGA (P = 0.91), PEF (P = 0.52), in-hospital mortality (4.0% vs. 8.0%, P = 0.50), or 30 day heart failure readmission rates (20.8% vs. 8.7%, P = 0.22).In this study, no differences were observed in the primary or secondary outcomes

162. Motivational interviewing can support physical activity in elderly patients with diastolic heart failure: results from a pilot study. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Motivational interviewing can support physical activity in elderly patients with diastolic heart failure: results from a pilot study. Patients suffering from heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) report similar symptoms and reduction in quality of life to those with reduced ejection fraction but remain largely untreated. We conducted a preliminary evaluation of the acceptance, feasibility, and efficacy of a motivational interviewing (MI) intervention to support elderly patients (...) suffering from HFpEF in maintaining or starting physical activity.At the conclusion of the exercise training in diastolic heart failure parent trial that examined the effects of supervised exercise, patients with HFpEF were offered participation in a two-group pilot study. Based on their preference, consenting patients were assigned to either a 6 month MI intervention group (n = 19) or their physicians' usual care (n = 20). To support participants in increasing and/or maintaining their physical activity
