Odds ratios with 95% CI and p-values for 30 day mortality by variable*
Variable Odds ratios for death within 30 days
(95% CI and p value)
Unadjusted Adjusted
Own home (versus care home) 1.38 (0.67 - 2.82, p = 0.384) 1.01 (0.40 - 2.52, p = 0.984)
Sepsis (versus no sepsis) 1.85 (0.74 - 4.64, p = 0.192) 1.75 (0.67 - 4.59, p = 0.254)
Severe sepsis (versus no sepsis) 8.60 (3.21 - 23.02, p < 0.001) 10.09 (3.37 - 30.19, p < 0.001)
Any resistant organism (versus no resistant organism isolated) 1.89 (0.76 - 4.72, p = 0.172) 2.10 (0.26 - 16.77, p = 0.486)
Resistant to initial therapy (versus not resistant) 1.92 (0.73 - 5.02, p = 0.184) 0.64 (0.07 - 5.85, p = 0.696

*Patients aged 90+ were at greater risk of 30 day mortality than the youngest age group but otherwise there was no significant effect of age, gender or co-morbidity.
