Prognostic Value of Thyroid Hormone FT3 in General Patients Admitted to the Intensive Care Unit

Figure 1

Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve for free triiodothyronine (FT3) level and 28-day mortality. The cut-off value of FT3 for 28-day mortality was 2.88 pmol/L, determined based on the Youden index. (a) ROC for all the patients, when cut-off of FT3 was 2.88 pmol/L, area under the curve (AUC) was 0.671 (95% CI: 0.563, 0.779), sensitivity was 0.514, and specificity was 0.815. (b) ROC for patients excluding those after an operation, when cut-off of FT3 was 2.875 pmol/L, AUC was 0.701 (95% CI: 0.598, 0.804), sensitivity was 0.504, and specificity was 0.813. (c) ROC for patients excluding those after an operation and those with brain injury, when cut-off of FT3 was 3.165 pmol/L, AUC was 0.76 (95% CI: 0.652, 0.869), sensitivity was 0.81, and specificity was 0.669.
