The charts were pulled from surgical procedures which happened between 2007 and 2015 by one particular surgeon (Grosso et al, 2016). Variables: Silver- Impregnated occlusive dressing The tools utilized are the Fischer exact test and multivariate logistic regression model. The Fischer exact test was used to do a univariate analysis to see the significance for the use of AQUACEL Ag SURGICAL dressing and Periprosthetic Joint Infection (PJI) (Grosso et al, 2016).The probability value was determined to be < . 05 which was considered significant (Grosso et al, 2016). This test measures statistical data to see if there is a nonrandom association between The incidence of acute PJI for patients managed with sterile xeroform dressing was 1.58% and the incidence for patients managed with AQUACEL Ag SURGICAL dressing is 0.33%” (Grosso et al, 2016, pg. 931). This statement is significant to the problem statement of the article. The most common pathogen found when cultured was methicillin- sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (55%) (Grosso et al, The informatio n gathered was from a prospectiv ely collected data. This is a major limitation in this article. There were not enough subjects to adequatel y to conduct a prospectiv e study.

(Independent) Standard xeroform/gauze dressing (Independent) Periprosthetic Joint Infection after Total Joint Arthroplasty (Dependent) variables. The literature did not define validity or reliability for this test. The multivariate logistic regression model was used to determine the risk factors associated with PJI when controlling confounding factors (Grosso et al, 2016). This model is used when there is multiple different elements that help predict others. This model is especially used when there are two independent variables. The literature states a probability value set at <.15 in the univariate analysis (Grosso et al, 2016). The probability is highlighted in the literature, however reliability and validity is not. 2016). This is significant information for this study.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
