Cochrane Collaboration Issue 8, 2015

Issue 8 is not quite complete, but I’m off on holiday, so here it is.  New or updated reviews (of which are several dozen) include:
  • Binocular versus standard occlusion or blurring treatment for unilateral amblyopia in children aged three to eight years
  • Silver-coated endotracheal tubes for prevention of ventilator-associated pneumonia in critically ill patients
  • Intravenous in-line filters for preventing morbidity and mortality in neonates
  • Pharmaceutical policies: effects of financial incentives for prescribers
