Multivariate analysis of independent predictors of hospital death for AIDS and non-AIDS patients with PCP, France, January 1, 2007–December 31, 2010*

Variable Odds ratio (95% CI)
HIV infection 0.33 (0.12–0.92)
Solid organ transplant 0.08 (0.02–0.31)
Age, per additional year 1.04 (1.02–1.06)
Allogeneic HSCT 8.6 (1.40–53.02)
Need for immediate oxygen therapy 4.06 (1.44–11.5)
Need for intubation and mechanical ventilation 16.70 (7.25–38.47)
Time to PCP treatment, per additional day 1.11 (1.04–1.18)

*Variables from Tables 1 and 2 were introduced into the multivariate model based on their association with hospital mortality by bivariate analysis with p values <0.20. Higher numbers indicate increased odds, with 1 as the cutoff point (i.e., values <1.00 indicate decreased risk, >1.00 increased risk). Goodness of fit (Hosmer-Lemeshow test) was 0.61. PCP, Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia; HSCT, hematopoietic stem cell transplant.
