Table 3 Multivariable model for hospital mortality

From: Fluid management in ARDS: an evaluation of current practice and the association between early diuretic use and hospital mortality

Patient characteristics Adjusted odds ratio (95%CI)
Diuretics, 48–72 h after ARDS 0.46 (0.22, 0.96)
Age, categorized 1.83 (1.14, 2.95)
Congestive heart failure 0.59 (0.26, 1.34)
Trauma as ARDS risk factor 0.52 (0.22, 1.24)
SOFA score, at ARDS onset, categorized 6.35 (1.91, 21.13)
Volume overload at 48 h 1.65 (0.74, 3.71)
  1. Age at admission was categorized into groups of <55, 55–70, 70–80, >80 years old.
  2. SOFA score was categorized into groups of ≤8, >8 and ≤ 16, and >16 for a linear association with mortality
  3. Volume overload is defined as a net ICU fluid balance (in L) equivalent to more than 10% of admission body weight (in kg)
  4. Abbreviations: ARDS acute respiratory distress syndrome, SOFA Sequential Organ Failure Assessment Score
