Table 3

Weekly values for QRS. Estimated value for the QRS complex (all, female and male data) and their respective 90% prediction interval (PI) based on the best fitting regression model. Values from the 17th to the 42nd week are given. N is the number of cases available for the model in any respective week. p values comparing the female and male QRS durations are given showing the transition to statistically distinguishable values at the 31st week (p values < .05 in bold type).
