Also, patients are considered random to represent samples of patients from the populations of patients at each clinic. In addition, there is residual variation at each visit for each patient. Let ijkl y be the measure of sitting heart rate (si_hr) at time l on patient k on drug i at clinic j . a. Write a statistical model for the data. b. Perform a statistical analysis of the data to evaluate the effects of the drugs on si_hr over the 12 week observation period....
