Table 6 Multivariate logistic regression analysis for death due to myocardial infarction before 70-year examination

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) 1.29 (1.01–1.57) 0.009
DBP supine (mmHg) 1.66 (1.37–2.02) <0.001
ApoB/ApoA1 ratio 1.50 (1.23–1.83) <0.001
T-wave abnormality* 2.66 (1.45–4.89) 0.002
Smoking 1.81 (1.17–2.82) 0.008
Diabetes mellitus 2.05 (1.03–4.07) 0.03
  1. Odds ratios from logistic regression were applied to variables standardised to one standard deviation and adjusted for age at entry.
