Table 5 Multivariate logistic regression analysis for development of abnormal Q-QS pattern (Minnesota 1.1) on ECG at age 70

From: T wave abnormalities, high body mass index, current smoking and high lipoprotein (a) levels predict the development of major abnormal Q/QS patterns 20 years later. A population-based study

Variable Odds Ratio (95% - CI) p value
BMI (1SD = 3.3 kg/m2) 1.32 (1.03–1.68) 0.03
Lp (a) 1.35 (1.05–1.73) 0.02
T-wave abnormality* 3.11 (1.18–8.17) 0.02
Smoking 1.63 (1.01–2.65) 0.046
  1. Odds ratios from logistic regression were applied to variables standardised to one standard deviation and adjusted for age at entry.
