Table 3 Outcome of severely brain-injured patients

From: Effects of tight computerized glucose control on neurological outcome in severely brain injured patients: a multicenter sub-group analysis of the randomized-controlled open-label CGAO-REA study

  Control group IIT group P value
Number = 98 Number = 90
Ventilation-free days 8.5 (0 to 22) 9 (0 to 20) 0.40
ICU-free days 8.5 (0 to 20) 8 (0 to 20) 0.50
Day-28 mortality 28 (28.6) 26 (28.9) 0.90
Day-28 good neurologic outcome 31 (31.6) 24 (26.6) 0.40
  1. Crude outcome of severely brain-injured patients included in a sub-group analysis of the CGAO-REA study. Ventilation and ICU-free days are expressed between ICU admission and Day-28. Good neurologic outcome was defined as a good recovery or moderate disability (Glasgow outcome scale score 1 to 2) [24]. Poor neurologic outcome was defined as severe disability or vegetative state or death (Glasgow outcome scale score 3, 4, 5) [24]. Continuous data are expressed as median (25th to 75th percentile) and categorical data as number (%). Continuous data were analyzed with Student’s t test. Categorical data were analyzed with χ2 test. IIT: intensive insulin therapy.
