Table 3 Prediction of 12-month mortality in ICU patients that were discharged from ICU after >3 days of iv glutamine supplementation

From: Plasma glutamine concentration after intensive care unit discharge: an observational study

a. Univariate logistic regression analysis in group A, patients sampled at discharge and longitudinally post ICU (n = 63)
  OR (95% CI) P  
Discharge SOFA (per point) 1.38 (1.14-1.67) 0.0003  
Dialysis at discharge 9.49 (2.25-39.9) 0.0008  
Discharge P-glutamine (per μmol/L) 1.004 (1.001-1.007) 0.0046  
Admission SAPS III (per point) 1.041 (1.002-1.081) 0.033  
Discharge total amino acids (per μmol/L) 1.0008 (1.0000-1.0016) 0.042  
b. Stepwise multiple logistic regression analysis in group A, patients sampled at discharge and longitudinally post ICU (n = 63)
  β OR (95% CI) P % Correct
Intercept −5.45 0.004 (0.0002-0.081)   
Discharge SOFA (per point) 0.335 1.40 (1.13-1.72) 0.0004 73.0
Discharge P-glutamine (per μmol/L) 0.041 1.004 (1.001-1.008) 0.0043 76.2
c. Univariate logistic regression analysis in group B, patients sampled 24–72 hours post ICU (n = 92)
  OR (95% CI) P  
Discharge SOFA (per point) 1.17 (1.02-1.34) 0.025  
Post ICU P-glutamine (per μmol/L) 1.0008 (0.9985-1.0031) 0.49  
Admission SAPS III (per point) 1.06 (1.02-1.09) 0.0007
