The scope of patient data covers different variables per patient, including patient demographics, preoperative risk factors, comorbidities, intraoperative factors, and outcomes until 30 days after an index procedure. The variables used in this analysis are listed with their definitions in appendix 1. Complications including mortality are captured regardless of whether they occur during an initial hospital stay or postdischarge. Trauma surgeries, surgeries involving the heart, or procedures requiring cardiopulmonary bypass are excluded.
Cases excluded from the analysis were those with missing covariate or primary outcome data. Patients who were not classifiable by any of the provided race or ethnicity designations or who did not have race or ethnicity reported in the original patient chart were subsequently counted in this analysis as missing. Gestational age at birth was not a required entry untiland any patients with unknown preterm birth statuses were also counted as missing.
The impact of missing covariate data on our model was evaluated in a separate sensitivity analysis utilizing multiple imputation. Outcomes Unplanned intubations are defined by the NSQIP-P as the unanticipated, required placement of an endotracheal tube nasal or oral or supraglottic airway SGA with the initiation of ventilatory support.
The SGA is used as a ventilatory rescue device in the setting of a difficult intubation and as a conduit for fiberoptic intubation. Thus, SGA placement was included in the unplanned intubation definition to allow for accurate capture of all intubations with subsequent mechanical ventilation.
If a patient was not intubated during surgery, intubation at any time after surgery was considered unplanned. The secondary outcome of interest was all-cause, day mortality after UPI. Statistical Analysis Cross-validation using the holdout method was used to assess the validity of a parsimonious multivariable logistic regression model to predict postoperative intubation. First, patients were randomly assigned to a derivation A derivation cohort is used to evaluate relationships between any particular risk factor and the defined outcome, in this case a UPI, and fit a model.
The investigator then applies the model to the validation cohort and reassesses the relationships and the fit of model on the outcome of interest. Using the derivation cohort, univariable analyses were individually performed on preoperative characteristics and comorbidities of interest, as well as total operation time z-scoreto identify any associations with UPI. To identify independent predictors of UPI, the derivation cohort was used to fit a parsimonious multivariable logistic regression model using variables with an a priori basis for inclusion by two independent investigators E.
Patients in the validation cohort were not included in model development. Age was entered as a continuous variable. Having no cardiac risk factors was the referent group versus minor, major, and severe cardiac risk factors.
ASA physical status classification 4 and 5 were combined as one variable. This variable, along with ASA physical status classification 2 and 3, was compared against ASA physical status classification 1. Collinearity diagnostics and Spearman correlation matrix were performed for all variables entered into the model.
Manual backward selection was used with a model entry criterion of 0. The area under the curve AUC of the receiver operating characteristic curves was used to assess the predictive value of the final model in the derivation and validation cohorts. The validation cohort was used to cross-validate the model by comparing model-estimated regression coefficients across models for each parameter. Incidence of UPI was analyzed based on the number of risk factors present. In a sensitivity analysis, our analysis methods were replicated using multiple imputation.
We randomly assigned patients to derivation Under sunny skies and cold temps, Stapp was able to run over laps in testing two different Camping World Series cars.
