The graph shows the results of a study done by Guerin et al. (2013) and reported in the New England Journal of Medicine. Patients arriving at emergency rooms who were having trouble breathing were randomly assigned to lie on their backs (supine) or on their stomachs (prone). For each of these groups, the graph displays the number of patients who died from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and the number who did not die from this condition.
a. Based on this graph, which treatment would you recommend for these patients and why?
b. Explain why a histogram was not used.
