Table 4 Backward logistic regression models of above and below dialysis symptom scores. Model 1 without and model 2 with time to recover post-dialysis. Adjusted Nagelkerke r2 values 0.311 and 0.371, respectively. Standard error of β (StE β), odds ratio (OR), 95% confidence limits of odds ratio 95% CL. Hand grip strength (HGS), distress thermometer score (DT), history of transient ischaemic attack (TIA)

From: Patient-reported intra-dialytic symptoms and post-dialysis recovery times are influenced by psychological distress rather than dialysis prescription
