Table 3 Changes in physiological and laboratory variables between ICU day 1 and day 7

From: Risk factors for late defecation and its association with the outcomes of critically ill patients: a retrospective observational study

  Early defecation group Late defecation group P value
Body temperature, °C 0.3 (−0.4 to 1.0) 0.7 (0.1 to 1.5) 0.004
WBC count, ×1000/μL −3.275 (−6.605 to 138) −2.685 (−5.248 to 623) 0.29
Serum CRP, mg/dL 1.6 (−0.5 to 6.6) 3.5 (0.7 to 8.5) 0.035
SOFA score −1 (−2 to 1) 0 (−1 to 2) 0.008
  1. All data are presented as the median (interquartile range). The change in each variable was calculated as the value on day 7 minus the value on day 1
