Adjusted risk for hospital death, need for MV and need for ICU care among hyponatremic compared to normonatremic patients with pneumonia. Point estimates and 95% confidence intervals, depicting the individual contribution of hyponatremia to the respective outcomes, were derived from logistic regression models utilizing hospital mortality, need for MV and need for ICU as dependent variables, and adjusting for age, gender, race, region, teaching hospital, admission source, principal payer, and Deyo-CCI score.
