Table 5 Logistic regression analysis for mortality risk factors according to cause of acute tubular necrosis

From: Patients with ischaemic, mixed and nephrotoxic acute tubular necrosis in the intensive care unit – a homogeneous population?

Cause of ATN Factor OR (95% CI) P
Ischaemic Oliguria 3.00 (1.64–5.49) 0.0003
  Acidosis 2.14 (1.09–4.19) 0.03
  Hyperkalaemia 2.64 (1.2–5.81) 0.015
  Multiple organ failure 2.67 (1.35–5.25) 0.005
Mixed Oliguria 1.96 (1.04–3.68) 0.036
  One co-morbid condition or more 2.04 (1.09–3.83) 0.024
Ischaemic, mixed and nephrotoxic ATN (all patients) Oliguria 2.53 (1.68–3.76) <0.001
  One co-morbid condition or more 1.88 (1.24–2.84) 0.002
  Acidosis 1.90 (1.20–3.04) 0.003
  Multiple organ failure 1.90 (1.21–3.02) 0.003
  Respiratory insufficiency 2.40 (1.23–4.63) 0.005
  Shock 2.29 (1.30–4.08) 0.002
  1. ATN, acute tubular necrosis; CI, confidence interval; OR, odds ratio.
