Table 3 Odds Ratio (ORs) and (95 % confidence intervals) for in-hospital mortality; according to the increased percentage of creatinine* with respect to basal creatinine in patients who required Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy subsecuently

From: Prognosis and serum creatinine levels in acute renal failure at the time of nephrology consultation: an observational cohort study

  1. *Creatinine change (%) = [(creatinine at nephrology consultation - Basal creatinine)/Basal creatinine] × 100
  2. Adjusted for age, sex, Liano scoring, Karnofsky scoring, prior food intake, chronic renal failure, diabetes, treatment of acute renal failure, causes of acute renal failure, community-acquired acute renal failure, basal hemoglobin, basal serum albumin, and RIFLE classes.
