Table 5 Multivariable-adjusted odds ratios for the association of risk factors and on-duty CHD death.

From: Firefighters and on-duty deaths from coronary heart disease: a case control study

  OR@ (95% CI$)*
  Model 1 Age < 60§ Model 2 Age <60 and no prior CHD diagnosis‡‡
Age ≥ 45 years old 6.5 (2.6 – 15.9) 6.2 (2.4 – 16.0)
Current Smoking 7.0 (2.8 – 17.4) 8.7 (3.3 – 22.5)
Hypertension 4.7 (2.0 – 11.1) 6.2 (2.4 – 15.7)
Diabetes Mellitus 2.0 (0.5 – 8.6) 2.4 (0.5 – 13.1)
Prior Diagnosis of CHD or other evidence of arterial-occlusive disease 15.6 (3.5 – 68.6) -
  1. * Odds ratios are adjusted for all other risk factors in the table. For example, the OR for current smoking is adjusted for age ≥ 45 years old, hypertension, diabetes and prior CHD. § Model 1 included all CHD death cases (n = 46) and active control firefighters (n = 308) less than 60 years old. ‡‡ Model 2 was restricted to firefighters less than 60 years of age without a prior diagnosis of CHD or other evidence of vaso-occlusive disease. Cases (n = 33) and controls (n = 305). See Table 1; @$See Table 2.
