Survival curves for use of adrenaline (dashed line) vs other vasopressors (solid line). a unadjusted (Kaplan-Meier). b Propensity-score-adjusted (Cox regression, see below) HR hazard ratio. c Propensity-score-matched (one of the imputed cohorts; log rank p < 0.05 for all). The propensity score (PS) was estimated with the following variables: age, gender, medical history (myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, hypertension, renal insufficiency), acute coronary syndrome as the etiology of cardiogenic shock, resuscitation prior to inclusion and initial presentation (confusion, blood lactate, creatinine, systolic blood pressure, sinus rhythm, and left ventricular ejection fraction). The score was converted to the logit scale for adjustment in Cox regression (b)
