From: Continuous versus bolus intermittent loop diuretic infusion in acutely decompensated heart failure: a prospective randomized trial

Rehospitalization or Death
  Univariate Multivariate
Variable HR (95% CI of HR) P-value HRa(95% CI of HR) P-value
BUN 1.01 (1.00, 1.02) 0.03 1.00 (0.99, 1.01) NS
BNP AT* 1.01 (1.00, 1.02) 0.03 1.01 (1.00, 1.02) 0.04
eGFR AT* 0.98 (0.94, 1.03) NS 1.06 (0.97, 1.15) NS
Creatinine AT* 2.43 (0.94, 6.35) NS 6.40 (1.25, 32.62) 0.02
Continuous vs bolus 2.91 (1.28, 6.63) 0.01 2.57 (1.01, 6.58) 0.04
  1. *After treatment. aMultivariate analysis adjusted for age, gender, baseline creatinine, eGFR BUN and BNP, use of hyperosmolar solutions, dopamine infusions, eGFR AT, the development of acute kidney injury. eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; BUN, blood urea nitrogen; BNP, B-type natriuretic peptide; NS, not significant.
