Table 5 Final stepwise logistic regression model to predict poor outcome (mRS 4 to 6) at three months. 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) 0.157 <0.001 1.17 (1.11-1.24)
Age (per year) 0.076 <0.001 1.08 (1.04-1.12)
Mean HB (per mg/dl) -0.319 0.007 0.73 (0.58-0.92)
  1. CI, confidence interval; HB, hemoglobin; NIHSS, National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale; OR, odds ratio; RBC, red blood cell.
