Advanced PubMed Presentation (with Endnote)

  1. 1. May 23, 2014
  2. 2.  Will learn techniques for constructing effective search strategies  Explore PubMed related tools  Will increase efficiency in utilizing PubMed and other databases  Will be sharing trends and ways to stay current  Identifying resources for citation management support
  3. 3. Topic: Intra-aortic balloon pumps intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation for refractory symptomatic vasospasm  Search Builder ◦ Advanced search ◦ Boolean Search (AND/OR/NOT)  doctors OR physicians  tumor OR tumour  doctors AND managed care  injuries AND automobiles
  4. 4. OR AND Boolean operators: AND, OR, and NOT must be entered in UPPERCASE.
  5. 5.  Enclose a phrase in double quotes ◦ Example: “spinal surgery”  Try without quotes first  Truncate a search by using an asterisk (*). This is commonly referred to as a “wildcard search” ◦ Example: mimic*  PubMed searches: mimic, mimics, mimicing etc..  “Nest” search terms in parentheses. The terms inside the set of parentheses will be processed as a unit and then incorporated into the overall strategy. ◦ Example: salmonella AND (hamburger OR eggs)  PubMed will retrieve records that contain the term salmonella, as well as one or both of the terms hamburger OR eggs. PubMed also refers to a list of commonly found words that are referred to as "stopwords." Stopwords are words that, if indexed, could potentially return every document in the database if the word was used in a search statement. Consequently, commonly found words are not indexed and PubMed will ignore them.
  6. 6. Search Details The Search Details portal is an important tool to use when building a search. If you notice that the results PubMed has retrieved for a search are not relevant, you should check the Search Details section to see exactly how PubMed has translated your query. An example would be a broad search for nursing (profession). While you have just searched the word nursing, PubMed translated that as: "nursing"[Subheading] OR "nursing"[All Fields] OR "nursing"[MeSH Terms] OR "nursing"[All Fields] OR "breast feeding"[MeSH Terms] OR ("breast"[All Fields] AND "feeding"[All Fields]) OR "breast feeding"[All Fields] PubMed mapped “nursing” to “breast feeding” and returned 578358 results. While taking out those terms in red will return 550360. A 28,000 article difference!
  7. 7.  Filters ◦ Article Types ◦ Publication Dates ◦ Subjects ◦ Journal categories ◦ Language  Custom Filters ◦ KUMC Research: university of kansas medical center [ad] ◦ BMJ, JAMA, & NEJM: "BMJ (Clinical research ed.)"[Jour] OR "JAMA : the journal of the American Medical Association"[Jour] OR "The New England journal of medicine"[Jour]
  8. 8.  Related Citations 134 Related Citations! Related Citations View the full record for an article (Abstract or Summary view) and click on the Related Citations link to retrieve closely related citations, based on shared MeSH (Medical Subject Heading) terms. Reviews To narrow your search results to review articles, click on Review in the left-hand column of your search results, under Article types. Or, from the Advanced Search screen, select Publication Type from the pull-down Search Builder menu. Enter Review in the Search Builder box, then click Add to Search Box. Enter any additional search terms, then click Search.
  9. 9. Mine citations from related articles to build your citation base!
  10. 10.  1. Find five citations on using dog therapy with dementia patients. Write down their PMIDs  2. Find a list of articles written by someone from the University of Kansas Medical Center.  3. Find citations in English on randomized control trials that address the treatment of fibromyalgia using alternative medicine. How many did you get? How many are available Free Full Text?  4. (ADVANCED) You are watching a documentary on how Abraham Lincoln died. According to the documentary, Lincoln died because a doctor inserted the tip of his finger into the bullet hole in his skull during the examination. Is this true? Find an article to back up your answer.
  11. 11. What is MeSH and when should you use it?
  12. 12. Why should you use MeSH?  If you use two or more words in a keyword search there is no guarantee that they will be linked.  MeSH headings are an efficient way to find information on “concepts” or topics where authors use different language to discuss the same ideas.  For example: Accidental Falls
  13. 13.  Do a Title word search; display results in Citation format; identify MeSH OR  Search the MeSH database ◦ Scope Note ◦ Subheadings ◦ Major Topics ◦ Explode
  14. 14. Thorough search Quick search  MeSH ◦ Provides ‘true’ meaning of term where a word might be use in more than one context ◦ Includes synonyms ◦ Deals with homonyms ◦ Aids in term discovery ◦ Helps with spelling variations and/or errors  Keyword search ◦ Recent publications (in process) ◦ Records supplied by publishers ◦ New phenomenon
  15. 15. Article: Use of intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation for refractory symptomatic vasospasm.
  16. 16.  Find MeSH Headings for your topic ◦ Do an Advanced Search for your topic  Use MeSH and Keywords Extra: Using the Advanced Search builder, determine how many articles are available on the psychology of bullying (MeSH terms). How many did you find?
  17. 17. Clinical Queries, PubMed Specific Topics, & PubMed Health
  18. 18. Three filters: • Clinical Study Categories • Systematic Reviews • Medical Genetics What do you get when you do a broad search on ‘neurosurgery’….
  19. 19. Helps with filtering the evidence. The clinical studies side also lets you choose broad or narrow scope. If you choose narrow, the search will be more focused with fewer results, while broad will get you more results but they’ll be less focused.
  20. 20. Core clinical journal subset
