Tips for Searching

Search by name rather than acronym - transient ischemic attack rather than TIA, gastroesophageal reflux disease rather than GERD; clostridium difficile rather than C. diff.

Search alternate names if you don't get results - interstitial lung diseases, interstitial pneumonitis, or diffuse parenchymal lung diseases; 3rd degree heart block, or 3rd-degree atrioventricular block, or complete heart block.

Insert AND between concepts for more results - epidemiology AND sickle cell anemia; management AND compartment syndromes.

Use Subject: Major Heading in the side toolbar to narrow results.

Copy and paste searches for accurate results.

Limit all searches to scholarly journals and by date.
