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.

74. Interventions for treating people with symptoms of bladder pain syndrome: a network meta-analysis. (Abstract)

Interventions for treating people with symptoms of bladder pain syndrome: a network meta-analysis. Bladder pain syndrome (BPS), which includes the condition of interstitial cystitis, is a poorly understood clinical condition for which patients present with varying symptoms. Management of BPS is challenging for both patients and practitioners. At present, there is no universally accepted diagnosis and diverse causes have been proposed. This is reflected in wide-ranging treatment options, used (...) alone or in combination, with limited evidence. A network meta-analysis (NMA) simultaneously comparing multiple treatments may help to determine the best treatment options for patients with BPS.To conduct a network meta-analysis to assess the effects of interventions for treating people with symptoms of bladder pain syndrome (BPS).We searched the Cochrane Incontinence Specialised Register, which contains trials identified from the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL

75. Aspirin (single dose) for perineal pain in the early postpartum period. (Abstract)

Aspirin (single dose) for perineal pain in the early postpartum period. Perineal trauma, due to spontaneous tears, surgical incision (episiotomy), or in association with operative vaginal birth, is common after vaginal birth, and is often associated with postpartum perineal pain. Birth over an intact perineum may also lead to perineal pain. There are adverse health consequences associated with perineal pain for the women and their babies in the short- and long-term, and the pain may interfere (...) with newborn care and the establishment of breastfeeding. Aspirin has been used in the management of postpartum perineal pain, and its effectiveness and safety should be assessed. This is an update of the review, last published in 2017.To determine the effects of a single dose of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), including at different doses, in the relief of acute postpartum perineal pain.For this update, we searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth's Trials Register (4 October 2019

76. Placebos in chronic pain: evidence, theory, ethics, and use in clinical practice. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Placebos in chronic pain: evidence, theory, ethics, and use in clinical practice. Despite their ubiquitous presence, placebos and placebo effects retain an ambiguous and unsettling presence in biomedicine. Specifically focused on chronic pain, this review examines the effect of placebo treatment under three distinct frameworks: double blind, deception, and open label honestly prescribed. These specific conditions do not necessarily differentially modify placebo outcomes. Psychological, clinical (...) , and neurological theories of placebo effects are scrutinized. In chronic pain, conscious expectation does not reliably predict placebo effects. A supportive patient-physician relationship may enhance placebo effects. This review highlights "predictive coding" and "bayesian brain" as emerging models derived from computational neurobiology that offer a unified framework to explain the heterogeneous evidence on placebos. These models invert the dogma of the brain as a stimulus driven organ to one in which

77. Therapeutic ultrasound for chronic low back pain. (Abstract)

Therapeutic ultrasound for chronic low back pain. This is an update of a Cochrane Review published in 2014. Chronic non-specific low back pain (LBP) has become one of the main causes of disability in the adult population around the world. Although therapeutic ultrasound is not recommended in recent clinical guidelines, it is frequently used by physiotherapists in the treatment of chronic LBP.The objective of this review was to determine the effectiveness of therapeutic ultrasound (...) in eight studies (80%), and no studies adequately assessed compliance with the intervention. There was very low-certainty evidence (downgraded for imprecision, inconsistency, and limitations in design) of little to no difference between therapeutic ultrasound and placebo for short-term pain improvement (mean difference (MD) -7.12, 95% confidence interval (CI) -17.99 to 3.75; n = 121, 3 RCTs; 0-to-100-point visual analogue scale (VAS)). There was also moderate-certainty evidence (downgraded

Osteoarthritis pain getting you down? Duloxetine July 13, 2020 Osteoarthritis pain getting you down? Duloxetine Clinical Question: Do Serotonin Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs), specifically duloxetine, improve pain in patients with osteoarthritis? Bottom Line: Duloxetine can meaningfully reduce osteoarthritis pain scores (by at least 30%) for ~60% of patients compared to ~40% on placebo. An average pain of ~6 (scale 0-10) will be reduced by ~2.5 points, compared to 1.7 on placebo (...) . Duloxetine adverse effects lead to withdrawal in 12% of patients versus 6% on placebo. Evidence: • Six systematic reviews with 2-7 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and 487-2102 patients. 1-6 Duloxetine 60-120mg daily versus placebo, results statistically significant unless indicated. o Proportion of patients attaining a meaningful pain reduction (generally =30% reduction in pain score): ?
