Table 2 Linear regression analysis of factors associated with hematocrit level

From: Polycystic kidney disease in patients on the renal transplant waiting list: trends in hematocrit and survival

Factor Standardized Coefficient (Beta) P Value
Polycystic Kidney Disease 0.062 <0.001
Pre-Dialysis EPO use 0.123 <0.001
Serum Albumin 0.157 <0.001
Male 0.113 <0.001
Age (per year) 0.034 <0.001
Year of First ESRD Service 0.06 <0.001
Smoking 0.015 0.007
Ischemic Heart Disease 0.013 0.027
Hemodialysis (vs. peritoneal dialysis) -0.076 <0.001
Serum Creatinine (mg/dl) -0.296 <0.001
Congestive Heart Failure -0.029 <0.001
  1. Dialysis modality was obtained from the Medical Evidence form (HCFA 2728), and was therefore only available for patients who started on ESRD therapy on or after 1995. Only variables that were significant in univariate analysis are shown.
