Table 4 Multivariate Logistic Regression Analysis for Surgical Airway in the Validation Dataset

From: Predictive value of quick surgical airway assessment for trauma (qSAT) score for identifying trauma patients requiring surgical airway in emergency room

  Adjusted OR 95% CI P value
qSAT score 3.19 2.47–4.12 <  0.0001
Admission to the tertiary emergency hospitals 0.56 0.34–0.93 0.026
RTS (per 1 point increase) 1.01 0.89–1.13 0.928
ISS (per 1 point increase) 0.99 0.98–1.01 0.834
Age group    
 16–59 y 0.85 0.58–1.25 0.433
  ≥ 60 y Reference
Male sex 1.54 1.15–2.07 0.141
  1. Quick Surgical Airway Assessment for Trauma (qSAT) score was defined as the total of the three component scores, including male sex (female, 0 point; male, 1 point), presence of the facial injury (no, 0 point; yes, 1 point), and presence of the cervical area injury (no, 0 point; yes, 1 point), for a total score ranging from 0 to 3. AIS Abbreviated Injury Scale. RTS revised Trauma Score, ISS Injury Severity Score. The Hosmer-Lemeshow tests were used to assess the goodness of fit of the model (P > 0.05)
