Table 3 Odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) for a diagnosis of ALI, ARDS, or sLI given a positive EVLW test

From: Is extravascular lung water index useful for the diagnostic accuracy of lung injury in patients with shock? We need more evidence

EVLW/ABW 5.61 (1.49-21.16) 5.71 (1.49-21.85) 2.56 (0.58-11.43)
EVLW/PBW 3.62 (1.09-12.05) 3.0 (0.90-10.42) 8.52 (1.75-41.64)
EWLV/PBV 8.48 (1.68-42.86) 5.80 (1.14-29.49) -
  1. ABW, actual body weight; ALI, acute lung injury; ARDS, acute respiratory distress syndrome; EVLW, extravascular lung water; PBV, pulmonary blood volume; PBW, predicted body weight; sLI, severe lung injury.
