Table 3 Predictors of hospital survival with a favourable neurological outcome in univariate and multivariate analysis

From: ACS network-based implementation of therapeutic hypothermia for the treatment of comatose out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survivors improves clinical outcomes: the first European experience

Univariate analysis
  OR 95% CI p
OHCA with shockable rhythm 5.50 1.07-28.16 p < 0.05
Treatment with MTH 3.90 1.35-11.27 p < 0.02
Glasgow Coma Score on hospital admission [patients with >3 points vs. patients with 3 points] 3.53 1.18-10.53 p < 0.02
Prior myocardial infarction 0.38 0.12-1.20 p = 0.097
Age [for a 10 year increase] 0.34 0.18-0.63 p < 0.001
Multivariate analysis
  OR 95% CI p
Treatment with MTH 4.13 1.20-14.19 p < 0.03
Age [for a 10 year increase] 0.33 0.17-0.64 p < 0.002
