Question details

Buteyko method, scope of inference The Buteyko method is a shallow breathing technique developed by Konstantin Buteyko, a Russian doctor, in 1952. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the Buteyko method can reduce asthma symptoms and improve quality of life. In a scientific study to determine the effectiveness of this method, researchers recruited 600 asthma patients aged 18-69 who relied on medication for asthma treatment. These patients were split into two research groups: one practiced the Buteyko method and the other did not. Patients were scored on quality of life, activity, asthma symptoms, and medication reduction on a scale from 0 to 10. Those in the Buteyko group experienced, on average, a significant reduction in asthma symptoms and an improvement in quality of life. A) Identify the population of interest and the sample in this study. Population is all asthma patients aged 18-69 who rely on medication for asthma treatment. Population is 600 recruited asthma patients aged 18-69 who rely on medication for asthma treatment. Population is asthma patients who use the Buteyko method Sample is all asthma patients aged 18-69 who rely on medication for asthma treatment. Sample is 600 recruited asthma patients aged 18-69 who rely on medication for asthma treatment. Sample is asthma patients who use the Buteyko method B) Can the results of the study can be generalized to the population? O Yes, because the study is experimental Yes, because because the study is observational. Yes, because the sample is representative of the population of interest. Yes, because the sample is NOT representative of the population of interest. No, because the study is experimental. No, because the study is observational No, because the sample is representative of the population of interest. No, because the sample is NOT representative of the population of interest.C) Can the findings of the study can be used to establish causal relationships? Yes, because the study is experimental. Yes, because because the study is observational Yes, because the sample is representative of the population of interest. Yes, because the sample is NOT representative of the population of interest. No, because the study is experimental. No, because the study is observational. No, because the sample is representative of the population of interest. No, because the sample is NOT representative of the population of interest.
