Unformatted text preview: 4 Example 10.2 -— Symptomatic Recovery in Pediatric Dehydration A study was conducted to determine the degree of recovery that takes place 90 minutes following treatment of 36 children diagnosed at the clinic with moderate to severe dehydration. Upon diagnosis and study entry, patients were treated with an electrolytic solution at various dose levels (0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0 mEq/l) in a frozen, flavored, ice popsicle. The degree of rehydration was determined by using a subjective scale based on physical examination and parental input. These scores were converted to a 0 to I 00 point scale, representing the percent of recovery. The child’s age and weight were also recorded. Is recovery related to electrolyte dose based on the data shown in Table 10.2? _____________________.——————-—-—-—- Solution The regression procedure (PROC REG) in SAS is used to perform a multiple linear regression analysis, regressing the percent recovery at 90 minutes (y) on the concomitant variables Dose Level (X1), Age (X2), and Weight (X3). Although, PROC GLM can also be used for this analysis, PROC REG has diagnostic and model building advantages for regression analysis when there are no class variables. in addition, multiple MODEL statements can be used with PROC REG. In this example, the model is written y=l30 +l31X1 + [52X2 + Bsxs +8 where X] = dose (mEq/l), x2 = patient’s age (years), and X3 = patient’s weight (lbs) are the independent or ‘explanatory’ variables. The parameters are Bo, ‘which represents the overall average response, and Bi, which represents the average ‘ increase in the degree of recovery (y) for a one-unit increase in xi (i = 1, 2, 3). The ‘ objective is to investigate the effect of Dose Level on response and how age and weight might influence that effect. TABLE 10.2.
