Sensitivity analysis for antimicrobials used for community-acquired infections in adult ICU

Parameter (7)Parameter estimateValuea
Intercept−1.7590.1722
B1 (teaching status)−0.3760.6866
B2 (ICU location)0.1221.1298
B3 (pediatric location)−0.2020.8171
  • a Transformed value [exp(parameter estimate)]. The risk adjustment binomial regression was determined as exp(intercept) × exp(B1) × exp(B2) × exp(B3), where B1, B2, and B3 = parameter estimate or 0 depending on yes/no status. Risk adjustments: hospital A (NMH), 0.134; hospital B, 0.159; hospital C, 0.195.
