Table 3 Factors associated with mortality (by a logistic regression model)

From: Mortality and clinical characteristics of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) associated with covid-19 in critically ill patients: an observational multicenter study (MISCO study)

  a 95% CI for β P-valueb Odds Ratio (OR)c 95% CI for OR
Arrhythmia (No)d 1.79 (0.26, 3.32) 0.02 35.73 (1.67, 764.66)
Diarrhea (No)e -2.77 (-4.89, -0.65) 0.01 0.004 (0.001, 0.272)
Ferritinf -0.003 (-0.005, -0.001) 0.02 0.997 (0.994, 0.999)
  1. Regardless of age
  2. a The numbers in this column are estimates of the coefficients using the logistic regression model for a dichotomous variable as response (in this case, Mortality which is coded as 0 if the patient survives, 0 otherwise)
  3. b Tests the null hypothesis that β is equal to 0 vs. the hypothesis that β is different from 0
  4. c The odds ratio and its CI are adjusted for Arrhythmia, Diarrhea, and Ferritin
  5. d This dichotomous variable was defined as 1 if the patient had Arrhythmia, 0 otherwise
  6. e This dichotomous variable was defined as 1 if the patient had Diarrhea, 0 otherwise
  7. f A one-unit increase in ferritin levels decreases the log of odds of survival by -0.003 units. In other words, the higher the ferritin levels, the greater the risk of mortality
