Table 6 Multivariate Model of Prolonged PICU Length of Stay

From: US children of minority race are less likely to be admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit after traumatic injury, a retrospective analysis of a single pediatric trauma center

Demographics and Injury Characteristics β-Coefficient t-statistic p-value
Minority (yes) −0.663 −0.987 p = 0.325
Trauma Activation (full) 1.720 1.979 p = 0.049
Trauma Type (penetrating) −0.825 −0.706 p = 0.481
Intentional Trauma (yes) 2.850 3.087 p = 0.002
ISS 0.0302 0.960 p = 0.338
Operative Procedure 1.934 2.591 p = 0.010
Organ Failure (yes) 1.387 1.844 p = 0.067
  1. Abbreviations and Definitions: PICU, pediatric intensive care unit; OR, odds ratio; C.I., confidence interval; ISS, injury severity score; “Prolonged PICU Length of Stay” defined as >2.5 days; “Minority” defined as Black or “other” race; r-squared for this model is 0.256
