From: Thrombocytopenia in adult patients with sepsis: incidence, risk factors, and its association with clinical outcome

Variable Odds ratio 95% confidence interval P value
APACHE III score 0.99 0.98–1.02 0.9
Lactate 1.59 1.1–2.47 0.02*
Albumin 0.66 0.25–1.74 0.4
Creatinine 1.07 0.78–1.51 0.6
Vasopressor duration 1.02 1.00–1.03 0.02*
