  1. Logistic regression was performed with potentially causative variables (in gray) in which p value was <0.2 in univariate analysis. Multicollinearity test was checked before doing multivariate analysis
  2. Hosmer-Lemeshow Goodness-of-Fit Test p=0.326, Cox & Snell R2=0.153, Nagelkerke R2=0.294
  3. AUC=0.829 (95% CI=0.786-0.871, p<0.001)
  4. OR Odds Ratio, CI Confidence Interval
