Table 3 Deviations related to total number of measurements (%) in the physiological variables

From: Moderate traumatic brain injury, acute phase course and deviations in physiological variables: an observational study

Variable (deviation limit) ICU ≥3 days
% (deviations/
measurements)
ICU 0–2 days
% (deviations/
measurements)
Hypotension (BP < 90 mmHg systolic) 5 % (162/3216) 5 % (59/1131)
Hypoxia (PO2 < 11 kPa//SAT < 92 %) 4 % (127/3101) 2.5 % (27/1063)
Hyperthermia (Body tp ≥ 38° Celsius) 18 % (198/1070) 13 % (31/236)
Anaemia (Hgb ≤ 10 g/dl) 33 % (327/984) 17 % (42/250)
Hyponatremia (Na ≤ 135 mmol/l) 5 % (47/972) 5 % (13/246)
Hyperglycaemia (Gluc ≥ 8 mmol/l) 19 % (183/969) 18 % (39/216)
