Table 2 Final stepwise logistic regression model to predict poor outcome (mRS 4 to 6) at discharge. Included variables: age, hemorrhage volume, NIHSS at admission, the presence of intraventricular blood, ICU stay, the need for mechanical ventilation, RBC transfusion and the mean HB level during hospital stay

From: Low hemoglobin is associated with poor functional outcome after non-traumatic, supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage

Variable Coefficient P OR (95% CI)
NIHSS on admission (per point) 0.261 <0.001 1.30 (1.17-1.45)
Presence of intraventricular hemorrhage extension 1.503 0.019 4.50 (1.23-15.83)
Age (per year) 0.043 0.021 1.04 (1.01-1.08)
Mean HB (per mg/dl) -0.281 0.027 0.76 (0.59-0.97)
  1. CI, confidence interval; HB, hemoglobin; mRS, modified Rankin Scale; NIHSS, National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale; OR, odds ratio; RBC, red blood cell.
