Table 2 OR for severe EIF among recruits with ΔORM ≥ cut-off

From: Orosomucoid: a promising biomarker for the assessment of exercise-induced fatigue triggered by basic combat training

ΔORM Cases Post-BCT RPE score Incidence of severe EIF (%) OR (95% CI) p value of OR
 ≤ 14  > 14
 < Cut-off value 38 30 8 21.1 Referent 0.009
 ≥ Cut-off value 15 6 9 60.0 5.625 (1.542–20.523)  
  1. Cut-off value of ΔORM = 0.2565 mg/mL. Severe EIF was defined as post-BCT RPE score > 14
  2. BCT basic combat training, CI confidence interval, EIF exercise-induced fatigue, ΔORM changed level of ORM during BCT, calculated as the level after BCT minus that before BCT, OR odds ratio
