Table 4 Odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) for mortality given a diagnosis of lung injury combined with an EVLW test

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

  ALI ARDS sLI
No EVLW test 1.91 (0.55-6.61) 2.00 (0.56-7.19) 5.34 (1.23-23.10)
EVLW/ABW 2.40 (0.50-11.53) 2.30 (0.42-12.45) 7.14 (1.08-47.42)
EVLW/PBW 2.43 (0.47-12.53) 2.38 (0.41-13.75) 4.41 (0.81-23.91)
EVLW/PBV 2.75 (0.52-14.44) 3.06 (0.53-17.46) 5.25 (0.97-28.28)
  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.
