Table 4 Comparison of the proportion of patients with a favourable neurological outcome between the two target temperature groups using propensity score analysis with the inverse probability of the treatment-weighting method

From: Effectiveness of lower target temperature therapeutic hypothermia in post-cardiac arrest syndrome patients with a resuscitation interval of ≤30 min

Variable Target temperature OR (95 % CI) P value
All patients <34 °C (vs. ≥34 °C) 1.381 (0.596–3.197) 0.452
Age    
 ≤60 years <34 °C (vs. ≥34 °C) 0.779 (0.297–2.147) 0.657
 >60 years <34 °C (vs. ≥34 °C) 3.812 (0.945–15.367) 0.061
Resuscitation interval    
 ≤30 min <34 °C (vs. ≥34 °C) 7.438 (1.769–31.272) 0.007
 >30 min <34 °C (vs. ≥34 °C) 0.583 (0.145–2.344) 0.449
  1. The propensity score analysis incorporated the following variables: age, sex (male), bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation, cardiogenic cardiac arrest, and resuscitation interval
  2. OR odds ratio, CI confidence interval
