Table 4 Univariate and multivariate analyses among candidemia patients for in-hospital death

From: Combination of Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score and Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) could predict the severity and prognosis of candidemia more accurately than the Acute Physiology, Age, Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) score

Variables Univariate analysis Multivariate analysis
OR 95%CI p-value OR 95%CI p-value
SOFA score5 19.0 5.3–68.0 < 0.001 26.4 3.4–202.4 0.002
APACHE II13 8.3 2.7–25.3 < 0.001    
Echinocandin use as initial treatment 0.4 0.2–1.1 0.084    
Alb <  2.3 g/dl 4.8 1.7–13.4 0.08

  1. *Alb Albumin, CCI the Charlson Comorbidity Index, CI Confidential interval, CRP C-reactive protein
  2. **CRP is not a poor prognostic factor among candidemia patients for in-hospital death
