Table 3 Logistic regression modeling of factors associated with in-hospital death

From: Mortality associated with timing of admission to and discharge from ICU: a retrospective cohort study

Factor Odds ratio (95% confidence interval) P-value
Diagnosis renal/toxic/metabolic vs. other 0.30 (0.23-0.38) <0.001
DFLST order 5.52 (4.28-7.12) <0.001
SAPS II (per point) 1.07 (1.06-1.07) <0.001
Male gender 1.31 (1.14-1.50) <0.001
Pre-ICU hospital stay (per day) 1.01 (1.00-1.02) 0.001
Admission day   
Monday 1 (reference) -
Tuesday 0.89 (0.69-1.13) 0.337
Wednesday 1.04 (0.81-1.34) 0.737
Thursday 0.99 (0.77-1.27) 0.943
Friday 1.25 (0.98-1.60) 0.078
Saturday 1.07 (0.82-1.38) 0.626
Sunday 1.06 (0.81-1.39) 0.662
Night time admission 0.94 (0.82-1.07) 0.344
  1. The model (n = 7380) had good discrimination (area under receiver operator characteristic curve 0.8543) and calibration (goodness of fit p = 0.411). Decision to forego life sustaining therapy (DFLST)
