  • OR indicates odds ratio; CI, confidence interval.

    The final model had a Hosmer and Lemeshow test significance of 0.801 and a −2 log likelihood of 193.

    Variables entered into the model were PRISM score ≥10, genetic syndrome, transport out of the PICU, reintubation, TPN, transfusion, steroids, and bloodstream infection.
