From: A randomised controlled comparison of early post-pyloric versus early gastric feeding to meet nutritional targets in ventilated intensive care patients

Variable Estimatea 95% confidence interval P value
Post-pyloric groupb 1.19 0.96-1.48 0.094
Age 1.00 0.99-1.01 0.9
APACHE II score 1.02 1.01-1.03 0.003
