  • What’s the difference?Google – one screen, limits are not shown, type in the search box – Google tries to guess what you want, corrects spellingMedline with Full-text – 3 search boxes, search in fields, limits, a lot more going on, does not correct spellingWhich one do you prefer?What’s in Google? What’s in the Medline with Full-text, PubMed?
  • ARDS in Google – I’m shocked to see the first resultMatching words, spelling, What are we getting? What are these? Websites! Not journal articles.Evaluation – upmost importance in a GoogleWebsite evaluation nowMayoClinic website – check it out – not an article, these are the articles in the references, these is 1 articles referenced in these referencesWhich one is the journal article? Why is it that one?Up to Date – what is it? Point of Care database – synthized information from journal articles / quick access
  • StepsClick on MeSH at the top of the screenType in the word you are looking forReview the selections and pick the one you want or search for anotherClick on the word to open it up and look at the subheadingsSelect Major Concept so that you know it’s the major concept of the articleClick on search databaseOnce you have results:Look at how many you haveIf you have a lot; narrow your search down using basic search limiters – Language, Publication year, etc.Next look at the articles you have retrieved – are they relevant to your search Next slide
  • What do we notice? Looks more like Google, does try to guess what you want, corrects spelling, gives related information, more automatic
  • MeSH term is searched – but look at all the additional terms that are searched – the database is looking for the words as a phrase – “Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome” and each term separately – get more resultsOne reason is that our journals are not hooked up to Pubmed – so we may have to full-text of the article but you won’t know itAn easy way to work this is to copy the PMID number and paste it into MEDLINE with Full-text under the field PMID – the article should come up and be attached to the full-text if we own it

  • Respiratory Care
  • Google and Medical Databases
  • Google Search
  • Getting to the Databases
  • MEDLINE with FULL-text
    Use the MeSH (Medical Subject Headings)
    The word you might use for something may not be the same word that is used in the database
    Located at the top of the page
    You can limit your search here
    Using subheadings
    Example: ARDS – Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Add to your search
    Synonyms for your original search word
    Boolean – AND, OR
    Select a field – a field to search within the article – Title, Abstract, All text, etc.
    Select more than one term in the MeSH
    A little more complicated
    HTML full-text
    This is just the text, no graphs, pictures, etc.
    It’s a little harder to read
    PDF full-text
    This is the best copy
    Looks exactly like the journal page
    Check here for full-text
    May or may not own it
    May link to a journal that we own OR
    May have to interlibrary the article

    Both have the ability to save information in your own personal account.
    + MEDLINE with Full-Text – our electronic journals are connected to the database

    + PubMed – more powerful searching
  • Searching in A journal
    Do we own it?
    Look in the Journal list
    Search from here
  • Citing Material
    Vancouver referencing
    Look at the resource guide – respiratory guide for instructions and examples
  • Vancouver Referencing
    Reference list appears at the end of the paper
    Entitle the page “References”
    Entries appear in one numerical sequence in the order the material is cited in the text of your paper
  • Vancouver Referencing - Journal Titles
    Journal abbreviations are used – not the full title of the journal
    Finding the journal abbreviations – go to PubMed; select the Journal Database and type in the title of the journal – click go
    Once the title appears look next to that and the title abbreviation should be there
  • Vancouver Referencing – In text citations
    Everything is numbered, starting with 1
    If you quote number 1 again, then you continue to use the same number
