From: Atrial fibrillation in chronic dialysis patients in the United states: risk factors for hospitalization and mortality

  P Value Hazard Ratio 95% CI
Age > = 71 (vs. <48) 0.0002 9.96 2.98–33.28
Hemodialysis (vs. PD) 0.015 2.19 1.17–4.13
Digoxin use (1 = present, 0 = absent) 0.002 3.91 1.65–9.27
Pre-Dialysis SBP, mm Hg (vs. <130)    
   130–146 0.028 0.37 0.15–0.89
   147–162 0.043 0.43 0.19–0.98
  1. SBP = systolic blood pressure, PD = peritoneal dialysis, LVH = left ventricular hypertrophy
