Figure 3

Percentage of sepsis patients developing ALI/ARDS in the 4 days after transfusion and median storage duration of transfused red blood cells. Grey bars represent the percentage of patients with sepsis (n = 96) who developed ALI/ARDS during the 96 hours after transfusion. Circles at the top and bottom represent cases and controls placed at their respective median age of transfused blood. The black line and grey confidence band represent a fitted line showing the probability of developing ALI/ARDS derived from the multivariable logistic regression and the corresponding 95% confidence interval.
