Table 3 Outcome differences between group of treatment: χ2 test results

From: Prospective study of the efficacy of antibiotics versus antitussive drugs for the management of URTI-related acute cough in children

Treatments Resolution of cough
Antibiotics vs antitussives χ2 = 5.999 (p < 0.05)
Antibiotics vs peripheral antitussives χ2 = 8.998 (p < 0.01)
Antibiotics vs central antitussives χ2 = 0.280 (p = NS)
Antibiotics + antitussives vs antitussives χ2 = 0.053 (p = NS)
Antibiotics + peripheral antituss. vs peripheral antitussives χ2 = 0.016 (p = NS)
Antibiotics + central antitussives vs central antitussives χ2 = 0.001 (p = NS)
