For effective searching
Search with a combination of significant words, significant phrases and CINAHL Headings.
Consult the CINAHL thesaurus for searching terms and if they are explodable and if you can attach a subheading.
Consider LIMITing the results to further customize your results.
If you have too many citations:
- AND in more words, concepts
- Place words in the title TI operating room
- LIMIT to age, gender, type of article
If you have too few citations:
- OR in more concepts cholesterol or hdl or ldl
- Take away LIMITs
- Consider searching in another database PubMed Google Scholar
