Table 4 Correlations between in-hospital days and other variables at admission

From: Erythromycin versus neomycin in the treatment of hepatic encephalopathy in cirrhosis: a randomized double-blind study

Variables GCS MELD HEI HEG CRP NH3
IHD (R) 0.480 −0.040 0.440 0.526 0.454 0.120
IHD (p) 0.007 0.840 0.015 0.028 0.015 0.520
  1. IHD (R) = Spearman rank correlation coefficient with in-hospital days. IHD (p) = p value of the Spearman rank correlation with in-hospital days. GCS = Glasgow coma scale. HEI = hepatic encephalopathy index. HEG = hepatic encephalopathy grade. CRP = C reactive protein (mg/dl). NH3 = serum ammonia (μM/l).
