Table 3 Prognostic factors

From: Prone positioning in severe ARDS requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation

  Dead (n = 100) Survivors (n = 58) p value
Lung fibrosis 16 (16.0%) 2 (3.4%) 0.017
Immunosuppression 43 (43.0%) 14 (24.1%) 0.017
Causes of ARDS: aspiration 13 (13.0%) 2 (3.4%) 0.048
Proof of pulmonary bacterial infection 31 (31.0%) 31 (53.4%) 0.005
Proportion of spontaneous breathing (d1–10, %) 50.0 (0–80) 80.0 (60–80) < 0.001
  1. Shown are the parameters with association to survival or death in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support in a univariate analysis
  2. Categorical variables are presented as frequency (percentages). Continuous variables are presented as median (IQR)
