Table 4 Risk factors of atrial fibrillation

From: Dexmedetomidine sedation during the nighttime reduced the incidence of postoperative atrial fibrillation in cardiovascular surgery patients after tracheal extubation

  p value Odds ratio (95 %CI)

Multivariate analysis   
 Age 0.13 1.1 (0.97–1.24)
 Dexmedetomidine 0.045 9.75 (1.05–90.8)
 Beta-blocker 0.36 0.69 (0.32–1.51)
  1. Univariate analysis was conducted by Fisher’s exact test. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was conducted using age, Dex, and beta-blocker, extracted because their p values in univariate analysis were not exceeding 0.15
  2. BMI body mass index, CRP serum level of C-reactive protein, APACHE II score Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II score, SOFA score Sequential Organ Failure Assessment score
