Table 4 Categorized risk factors between survivors and non-survivors in the high risk group

From: Incidence and prognosis of intra-abdominal hypertension in critically ill medical patients: a prospective epidemiological study

  Survivors (n= 51) Non-survivors (n= 36) p value
Number of categorized risk factors    
   On admission 2.2 ± 0.8 2.7 ± 0.9 < .001
   During ICU stay 2.6 ± 0.7 3.1 ± 0.8 < .001
Risk factors during ICU stay (n, percent)    
   Diminished abdominal wall compliance 48 (94.1) 35 (97.2) < .001
   Increased intraluminal contents 20 (39.2) 24 (67.6) < .001
   Increased abdominal contents 10 (19.6) 16 (44.4) < .001
   Capillary leak syndrome/fluid resuscitation 45 (88.2) 34 (94.4) < .001
  1. Categorized risk factors between survivors and non-survivors in the high risk group (87 patients with ≥2 categorized risk factors). ICU, intensive care unit. Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation, unless otherwise indicated.
