Table 3 Associations of variables with all-cause mortality according to the multivariate Cox proportional hazard regression analysis using the stepwise method

From: Relationship between serum calcium level at dialysis initiation and subsequent prognosis

Variables HR 95% CI P value
Serum adjusted calcium 1.267 1.092-1.470 0.002
Age 1.045 1.030-1.060 <0.001
Female gender 0.656 0.471-0.912 0.012
SBP (/10 mmHg) 0.918 0.877-0.960 <0.001
History of CVD 1.656 1.229-2.231 <0.001
Use of calcium carbonate 0.580 0.409-0.822 0.002
  1. Adjusted for serum adjusted calcium, age, gender, BMI, SBP, DBP, CTR, history of CVD, use of calcium carbonate, hemoglobin, serum albumin, eGFR, PTH, and CRP
  2. BMI body mass index, SBP systolic blood pressure, DBP diastolic blood pressure, CTR cardiothoracic rate, CVD cardiovascular disease, eGFR estimated glomerular filtration rate, PTH parathyroid hormone, CRP C reactive protein
