Table 3 Logistic model for the prediction of serious complications or death using proADM and all CURB covariates

From: Prohormones for prediction of adverse medical outcome in community-acquired pneumonia and lower respiratory tract infections

  Serious complications Death
  OR 95% CI P OR 95% CI P
Intercept 0.08 (0.06, 0.11) <0.001 0.02 (0.01, 0.03) <0.001
Confusion - yes 2.05 (1.07, 3.91) 0.03 2.30 (1.01, 5.22) 0.047
Urea
(by two-fold increase)
1.59 (1.05, 2.41) 0.03 1.51 (0.85, 2.70) 0.16
Respiratory rate
(by +10 breaths/minute)
1.38 (1.10, 1.74) 0.01 1.23 (0.88,1.72) 0.23
Systolic blood pressure

ProADM*
(by 2-fold increase)
1.92 (1.44, 2.57) <0.001 1.84 (1.18, 2.87) 0.01
  1. OR, Odds ratio, CI, Confidence interval.
  2. Intercept corresponds to a person without confusion, urea of 7 mmol/l, respiratory rate of 20 breaths/minute, systolic blood pressure of 130 mmHg, age 70 years and ProADM of 1 nmol/l.
  3. * OR (95% CI, P-value) for proADM in the complete case analysis without imputation of missing data are 1.61 (1.13 to 2.31; P = 0.01) for the prediction of serious complications and 1.65 (0.97 to 2.79; P = 0.06) for the prediction of death.
