Table 3 Adjusted odds ratios for in-hospital mortality per SBP category

From: The association between intravenous fluid resuscitation and mortality in older emergency department patients with suspected infection

IV fluids received at ED including in the ambulance (L) OR (95% CI) p value
SBP ≤ 120 mmHg
 0–1 L 1.18 (0.47–2.97) 0.726
 1–2 L 0.78 (0.26–2.15) 0.644
 >  L 1.08 (0.43–2.70) 0.868
SBP > 120 mmHg
 0–1 L 2.06 (1.02–4.16) 0.045
 1–2 L 0.28 (0.07–1.04) 0.057
 > 2 L 2.35 (0.59–9.45) 0.228
  1. Association model was made for age category and in-hospital mortality, per three fluid categories, and split per blood pressure category. Adjusted for Do Not Resuscitate status, urban or academic hospital, PI score, RO score, and supplemental oxygen. Figure 1 shows the stratification into the different groups
  2. IV intravenous, ED emergency department, OR odds ratios, CI confidence interval, SBP initial systolic blood pressure, PI Predisposition and Infection, RO Response and Organ failure
