Figure F16 is a forest plot diagram depicting sensitivity of pad tests compared to multichannel urodynamics (“gold standard”) for any detrusor overactivity. The data came from 2 studies. The plot has two columns. The left-hand column lists the last name of the first author for each study and the year of publication. The right-hand column is a plot of sensitivity as percentage with 95% CI of the subjects with positive pad tests and with positive urodynamic tests for detrusor overactivity. Pooled with random effects model mean sensitivity is presented by a square incorporating confidence intervals represented by horizontal lines. The figure demonstrates that on average, 72% (95% CI 30; 94) of women with a positive pad test have positive urodynamic test for detrusor overactivity.
