Table 4 Estimates (regression coefficients and 95% confidence intervals) for the subsequent outcome in % creatinine* (mg/dL) at discharge from hospital according to increased percentage of creatinine with respect to basal creatinine

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 discharge - Basal creatinine)/Basal creatinine] × 100
  2. Creatinine change (%) = [(creatinine at hospital consultation - Basal creatinine)/Basal creatinine] × 100
  3. 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.
