Figure 1

Adjusted hazard ratio for hospital mortality at various HbA 1c levels. Hazard ratios >1 are indicative of higher risk for those with higher HbA1c levels. Dashed lines represent the 95% confidence interval for each HbA1c level. Results were obtained by multivariate Cox regression with cubic splines with four knots of HbA1c adjusted for APACHE II scores.
