Figure 3. Effects of glucocorticoid aerosol therapy on Acinetobacter baumannii isolation during invasive mechanical ventilation among prespecified patient subgroups, China. We applied Cox proportional hazards model with Efron’s method for handling ties between groups to assess favorable eﬀects of glucocorticoid aerosol on A. baumannii isolation. Black horizontal marks indicate hazard ratios, and error bars indicate 95% CIs. APACHE II, Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II; COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; ICU, intensive care unit. *Limited numbers for analysis. †For interaction, p = 0.006.
