A Medline adjunct is J.A.D.E (Journal Abstracts
Medline Delivered Electronically) (32).
Subscribers enter their email address and Medline search term to this service,
and receive a weekly email of Medline references and abstracts archived
within the previous week. For a hand surgeon, a J.A.D.E. request using
the search term arm[MeSH Major Topic] will retrieve articles
with a major theme involving the upper arm and all distal structures. This
term is too broad to be useful for general searches, but when limited to
articles archived in a one week period, it produces a tolerable volume
of about 15 citations per week. Alternatively, the same search of
upper extremity citations archived within the last week could be run manually
with the following somewhat cumbersome link:
but J.A.D.E. does this automatically.
