The shunt fraction was, on average, one fourth smaller after mecIofenamate therapy. The increase in P0 2 had a time course appropriate for oral administration of mecIofenamate (Fig 3). 1 kPa). The values of pH and Peo2 were not affected by mecIofenamate. 6 kPa) after drug administration. Furthermore, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and temperature were unchanged. FIGURE 1.

A total of 35 students were enrolled in these two seminar groups, and were excluded from the evaluation of the lecture. Analysis of covariance was used to compare the Thursday lecture group with the Tuesday lecture group. Both multivariate and univariate analyses of covariance were used to assess differences in perceived risk of various behaviors and to ascertain a pattern of consistent responses. The impact of perceived risk on behaviors and attitudes was assessed using a polytomous logistic regression model with three outcomes: yes, no, or maybe.

6% of the possible maximum. There were significant differences in beliefs about medical student prerogatives in declining to take a medical history, perform a physical examination, and draw blood. 01). ro~e­ dures where the trend was similar but the difference was not slgmficant. 1 %) or maybe should (23%) have the prerogative to decline participation. With minor exception (being in the same room) the beliefs of the students carried over to expectations for interns and residents (Table V). Once again, the performance of surgery on AIDS patients was thought to carry high risk by a large number of students and was not influenced by the students' perception of risk score.
