Graph description: confidence intervals for two trials

The graph has two axes. The horizontal axis shows study, labeled Polymer pad and Micro Pulse. The vertical axis shows Odds ratio, scale numbered 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5. There is a horizontal line through odds ratio = 1. For each of the two studies, there is a point marked showing the odds ratio and a vertical line through this showing the confidence interval. For Study = Polymer pad, odds ratio = 0.46, vertical line goes from 0.26 to 0.82. For Study = Micro Pulse, odds ratio = 0.32, vertical line goes from 0.08 to 1.22. This crosses the horizontal line at 1.0.
