Table 2 Serial evaluation of the change in the daily PELOD-2 score from day 1, adjusted for baseline value (PELOD-2 score on day 1)

From: Performance of the PEdiatric Logistic Organ Dysfunction-2 score in critically ill children requiring plasma transfusions

Variable Odds ratio 95 % CI p value
PELOD-2 score on day 1 1.30 1.22–1.39 <0.0001
Change in PELOD-2 score
 Day 1–day 2 1.33 1.21–1.47 <0.0001
 Day 1–day 5 1.26 1.15–1.39 <0.0001
 Day 1–day 8 1.28 1.15–1.43 <0.0001
 Day 1–day 12 1.38 1.20–1.58 <0.0001
  1. Odds ratio (OR) for death is provided with a 95 % CI. The cumulative OR of death can be calculated as follows: (OR of PELOD-2 score on day 1)PELOD-2 score on day 1 × (OR of change in score from day 1 to specific day)PELOD-2 score on specific day – PELOD-2 score on day 1. For example, for a child whose score is 10 on day 1 and 6 on day 12 (change in score −4), the OR for death would be 1.3010 × 1.38−4 = 3.80
