Table 9 Association between urinary cystatin C-positive subclinical AKI and adverse outcomes

From: Subclinical acute kidney injury is associated with adverse outcomes in critically ill neonates and children

Outcomes uCysC(+)/AKI(−) vs. uCysC(−)/AKI(−)
Mortality, n OR 12.29 (95% CI 4.92–30.70), P < 0.001
AORb 9.34 (95% CI 3.55–24.61), P < 0.001
Length of ICU staya, hours B 0.392 (SE 0.050), P < 0.001
Bc 0.111 (SE 0.045), P = 0.015
  1. B is the unstandardized coefficient
  2. AKI acute kidney injury, AOR adjusted OR, CI confidence interval, ICU intensive care unit, OR odds ratio, SE standard error, uCysC urinary cystatin C
  3. aICU length of stay was log-transformed for linear regression analysis
  4. bAfter adjustment for body weight and illness severity using multivariate binary logistic regression analysis
  5. cAfter adjustment for body weight and illness severity using multivariate linear regression analysis; body weight was log-transformed due to skewed distribution
