Best Bets Evidence Summaries

I am doing a search on ‘trial without catheter’ and I came across a Best BETS  (Best Evidence Topics) summary.

“BETS were developed in the Emergency Department of Manchester Royal Infirmary, UK, to provide rapid evidence-based answers to real-life clinical questions, using a systematic approach to reviewing the literature. BETs take into account the shortcomings of much current evidence, allowing physicians to make the best of what there is. Although BETs initially had an emergency medicine focus, there are a significant number of BETs covering cardiothoracics, nursing, primary care and paediatrics.”

The BET I am looking at is Alpha-blockers increase the chances of a successful trial without catheter.
