inhaler: Clarity of inhaler instructions

inhalerR Documentation

Clarity of inhaler instructions

Description

Ezzet and Whitehead (1991) analyze data from a two-treatment, two-period crossover trial to compare 2 inhalation devices for delivering the drug salbutamol in 286 asthma patients. Patients were asked to rate the clarity of leaflet instructions accompanying each device, using a 4-point ordinal scale.

Usage

inhaler

Format

A data frame of 572 observations containing information on the following 5 variables.

subject

The subject number

rating

The rating of the inhaler instructions on a scale ranging from 1 to 4

treat

A contrast to indicate which of the two inhaler devices was used

period

A contrast to indicate the time of administration

carry

A contrast to indicate possible carry over effects

Examples

## Not run: 
## ordinal regression with family "sratio"
fit1 <- brm(rating ~ treat + period + carry,
            data = inhaler, family = sratio(),
            prior = set_prior("normal(0,5)"))
summary(fit1)
plot(fit1)

## ordinal regression with family "cumulative"
## and random intercept over subjects
fit2 <- brm(rating ~ treat + period + carry + (1|subject),
              data = inhaler, family = cumulative(),
              prior = set_prior("normal(0,5)"))
summary(fit2)
plot(fit2)
