I am reading the comprehensive on-line documentation about msm. The positive side is that it seems it has been designed for biomedical statistics,
like Clinical Trials.
The bad side is that it does not seem to model observations sequences that are not
independent but instead are autocorrelated, as it is my case. I did not find any mention to
correlated observations therefore I assume the authors did not have to face this problem.
Did I get it wrong ?

Since the breathing signals amplitude is an autocorrelated function of time and phase, I would
greatly appreciate any comment about the possibility to use msm eventually after carring out
some modifications if the source code is available.

 Thank you in advance for your attention. I am reading the comprehensive on-line documentation about msm. The positive side is that it seems it has been designed for biomedical statistics,
