  • The final model had a Hosmer and Lemeshow test significance of 0.542 and a −2 log likelihood of 186.

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