From: Hyperglycemia and risk of ventricular tachycardia among patients hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction

Type of VT VT (IR) Odd ratio (95% confidence interval)
Unadjusted Multivariable adjusted
< 140 mg/dl ≥ 140 mg/dl < 140 mg/dl ≥ 140 mg/dl
All episodes of VT 652 (15.7%) Reference 1.28 (1.08–1.51) Reference 1.48 a (1.23–1.78)
Early onset VT 434 (10.5%) Reference 1.21 (0.99–1.48) Reference 1.39 b (1.11–1.73)
Late onset VT 218 (5.32%) Reference 1.42 (1.07–1.87) Reference 1.19c (0.89–1.59)
  1. Italic values indicate significance of p value (p < 0.05)
  2. Early onset VT was defined as VT that occurred within 48 h after hospital admission
  3. IR incidence rate
  4. aAdjusted for age, sex, race, and history of diabetes
  5. bAdjusted for age, sex, race, history of diabetes, and AMI type
  6. cAdjusted for age, sex, race, and in-hospital development of heart failure
