Table 1 GEE (generalized estimation equation) model with blood pressure, heart rate, or tail temperature as the dependent variable, and sex, vapor condition, and time as independent factors

From: Chronic ethanol vapor exposure potentiates cardiovascular responses to acute stress in male but not in female rats
