  1. As measured in the cohort of interest (n = 189 ICU patients at days 5–7)
  2. Hazard Ratios and P values were computed using univariate and adjusted Cox proportional hazards models from a priori identified clinical risk factors for secondary infection (SOFA score and mechanical ventilation at timepoint of interest)
  3. Values are presented with 95% CI
