Table 3: Impact of Low High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) on in-Hospital Outcomes Among Acute Coronary Syndrome Patients in the Middle East

In-Hospital Outcome Odds Ratio 95% CI P
Recurrent ischemia 1.17 0.96-1.41 0.112
Congestive heart failure 1.05 0.90-1,22 0.509
Reinfarction 0.90 0.64-1.29 0.573
Cardiogenic shock 1.61 1.20-2.14 0.001
Mortality 1.54 1.06-2.24 0.022

CI = Confidence interval; The different covariates in the adjusted multivariable logistic regression models included age, gender, prior aspirin use, smoking, and total cholesterol; all the adjusted models were statistically significant (P<0.001); The models also fit reasonably well (the P values for the Hosmer and Lemeshow statistics were all >.05).
