CINAHL uses the (U.S.) National Library of Medicine's Medical Subject Headings (MeSH). These subject headings are arranged in a hierarchy that enables searching at various levels of detail, from general to very specific terms. There are more than 13 000 main subject headings and thousands of cross-references that assist in narrowing searches to the most appropriate subject headings.

Please view the video and/or slideshow below for more information about how to search the CINAHL database using MeSH.
