Table 3 Influence of physician contact on gender differences for cardiac risk factor recording in 1,161 patients with angina pectoris (odds ratio greater than one favours the recording of cardiac risk factors for men)

From: Gender differences in the clinical management of patients with angina pectoris: a cross-sectional survey in primary care

  Adjusted Odds Ratios (95%CI) Adjusted Odds Ratios (95%CI) also adjusted for annual physician contact
  N = 1,161 N = 1,155
Body Mass Index 1.18 (0.90 to 1.54) 1.27 (0.96 to 1.67)
BP previous 12 months 0.99 (0.69 to 1.43) 1.29 (0.88 to 1.90)
Smoking habit 1.12 (0.74 to 1.71) 1.43 (0.92 to 2.22)
Cholesterol 1.46 (1.02 to 2.07) 1.68 (1.17 to 2.42)
All 4 risk factors recorded 1.35 (1.06 to 1.73) 1.50 (1.17 to 1.93)
  1. BP, blood Pressure; 95%CI, 95% confidence interval.
  2. All Odds Ratios are adjusted for: age, duration of angina and previous MI.
  3. Odds ratios in the final column also adjusted for number of physician contacts over 12 months.
  4. N, number of 'complete cases' included in regression analysis.
  5. (number of physician contacts missing for 6 patients)
