Table 3 Adjusted probability for pre-hospital interventions

From: Propensity for performing interventions in pre-hospital trauma management – a comparison between physicians and non-physicians

Intervention Strength of association of PHAT presence to intervention (p) OR for experiencing intervention if cared for by PHAT (Cl) Fit of regression model (Nagelkerke R2)
Nasal airway ≥ 0.10 - 0.092
Oral airway ≥ 0.10 - 0.225
Endotracheal intubation 0.01 5.5 (1.5-19.7) 0.521
Neck-immobilisation ≥ 0.10 - 0.464
Spine board ≥ 0.10 - 0.405
Immobilisation of extremity 0.041 3.2 (1.0-9.8) 0.129
Crystalline fluids ≥ 0.10 - 0.115
Colloid fluids ≥ 0.10 - 0.576
Hypertonic solution ≥ 0.10 - 0.704
  1. Probability is expressed as odds ratio (OR), normalised for confounding from age, sex, trauma severity, trauma mechanism, vital parameters and 30-day mortality. OR shown for associations p ≤ 0.10.
