Table 3 Univariate analysis of variables associated with in-hospital death

From: High neutrophils and low lymphocytes percentages in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid are prognostic factors of higher in-hospital mortality in diffuse alveolar hemorrhage

Variables Odds ratio 95% CI p-value
Pre-existing cardiac disease 2.35 0.60–9.30 0.22
Idiopathic DAH 0.31 0.10–0.95  < 0.05
Oxygen flow ≥ 4 L/min 3.90 1.20–12.6  < 0.05
LDH > 2ULN 1.12 0.20–6.39 0.89
eGFR < 60 mL/min 5.00 1.29–19.4  < 0.05
Neutrophils percentage in BALF ≥ 44.5% 16.0 4.33–58.9  < 0.05
Lymphocytes percentage in BALF < 14% 7.44 2.11–26.2  < 0.05
