Quality Adjusted Life Years preserved by treatment for sepsis.

Since only 47 patients from each of 2 Intensive Care Units are provided, this example illustrates how the Law of Large Numbers can fail to apply to ICE inferences. Unlike the 3 other "ICEinfer" example data.frames provided, the "sepsis" data.frame contains 3 additional patient charcteristics (confounders) for potential use in covariate-adjustment via linear models.
