Diagnostic odds ratio for infection
Period 1 (d 1–2) Period 5 (d 3–5) Period 10 (d 6–9)
IG# 26.7 [89.2 / 76.4] 7.9 [81.6 / 64.1] 4.8 [27.9 / 92.6]
CRP 3.8 [42.9 /83.3] 8.3 [89.2 / 50] 10.0 [66.7 / 83.3]
LBP 3.6 [67.3 / 63.9] 2.5 [17.6 /92] 6.9 [27.7 / 94.7]
IL-6 3.0 [54.5 / 71.4] 2.0 [48.4 / 68.5] 2.6 [32.4 / 84.6]
SOFA 3.7 [71.8 /59.0] 1.8 [65.4 / 48.3] 2.7 [81.8 / 37.2]

Diagnostic odds ratio (DOR) for infection was calculated from the sensitivities and specificities for clinical parameters. DOR [sensitivity% / specificity%] are given in the table for each period. IG#, immature granulocyte count; CRP, C-reactive protein; LBP, lipopolysaccharide binding protein; IL-6, interleukin-6; SOFA, sequential organ failure assessment.
