Help!! WIth EBP assignment

  1. I have an assignment that requires finding and summarizing an EBP on one diagnosis related groups.

    The groups are:

    chest pain
    cesarean section
    vaginal delivery
    heart failure & shock
    laproscopic appendectomy
    bronchitis & asthma <18 years of age

    It would be greatly appreciated any help in locating an EBP article about one of these DRG's/

    Search Medline, CINHAL, Google's "Netting the Evidence", Pubmed and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.

    Use a PICO framework for you search question to get a more relevant result.

    (PICO =

    P: Population

    I: Intervention

    C: Control (where applicable)

    O: Outcome

    For example, “In people with dementia, are there non-pharmacological treatments [in comparison to pharmacological treatments] successful in halting or slowing cognitive decline?”)
