Table 3 Predictors of intensive care unit and hospital mortality

From: Elevated troponin and myocardial infarction in the intensive care unit: a prospective study

Predictor ICU mortality (OR [95% CI]) Hospital mortality (OR [95% CI])
  Univariable Multivariable Univariable Multivariable
APACHE II score (10-point increment) 3.92 (2.08–7.40) 2.70 (1.27–5.72) 3.10 (1.82–5.30) 2.37 (1.21–4.63)
Mechanical ventilation 6.14 (1.71–21.97) 0.69 (0.11–4.18) 3.66 (1.36–9.82) 0.56 (0.13–2.46)
Inotropes or vasopressors 8.23 (2.95–23.00) 6.12 (1.31–28.68) 6.10 (2.50–14.89) 4.76 (1.27–17.82)
Hemodialysis 1.58 (0.54–4.62) 0.63 (0.16–2.42) 1.38 (0.50–3.81) 0.52 (0.14–1.87)
MI 2.81 (1.05–7.55) 2.25 (0.65–7.77) 3.55 (1.39–9.10) 3.22 (1.04–9.96)
  1. This table summarizes the relation between mortality and APACHE II score, MI, and each of the three types of advanced life support at any time during the ICU stay (mechanical ventilation: 61.7% of patients; inotropes or vasopressors: 38.3% of patients; hemodialysis: 18.3% of patients). APACHE, Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation; CI, confidence interval; ICU, intensive care unit; MI, myocardial infarction; OR, odds ratio.
