Abstract
The potential to characterize nonlinear progression over time is now possible in many health conditions due to advancements in medical devices and more frequent data collection. It is often of interest to investigate intervention effects using medical monitoring data collected before and after treatment; however, analytic challenges emerges.In this talk, semiparametric mixedmodeling extensions to accommodate nested repeated measurements will be presented. These extensions are well illustrated to the semiparametric mixed-model framework with an application to a prospective study of 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in children with obstructive sleep apnea, where it is of interest to compare blood pressure patterns before and after surgical intervention.
