Table 2 Logistic regression analysis of 30-day mortality for intubated trauma patients

From: Ketamine versus propofol for rapid sequence induction in trauma patients: a retrospective study

  Adjusted odds ratio
(95% Confidence Interval)
P-value
Ketamine versus propofol (reference) primary analyses 0.98 [0.58, 1.66] 0.93
 Sex, male 1.08 [0.61, 1.95] 0.79
 Age 1.05 [1.04, 1.07]  < 0.001*
 ISS 1.02 [0.99, 1.04] 0.12
 SBP before intubation < 90 mmHg 1.46 [0.43, 4.54] 0.53
 GCS before intubation 0.84 [0.78, 0.91]  < 0.001*
Ketamine versus propofol (reference) secondary analyses 1.00 [0.58, 1.74] 0.99
 Sex, male 1.19 [0.66, 2.20] 0.56
 Age 1.05 [1.03, 1.07]  < 0.001*
 ISS 1.02 [0.99, 1.04] 0.058
 SBP before intubation < 90 mmHg 1.63 [0.47, 5.24] 0.42
 GCS before intubation 0.85 [0.78, 0.92] 0.0002*
  1. 30-day mortality (primary outcome) for the primary and secondary analyses presented as odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals adjusted for sex, age, ISS, SBP and GCS before intubation. In the secondary analysis we excluded patients if both ketamine and propofol had been used within approximately 15 min prior to emergency intubation, and it was unclear which one had been used as induction agent
