Variables included in the multivariable logistic analysis were NTIS, the duration of MV, CREA, oxygenation index, WBC, ALB, and age. NTIS: nonthyroidal illness syndrome; FT3: free triiodothyronine; FT4: free thyroxine; TSH: thyroid-stimulating hormone; APACHE II score: acute physiology and chronic health evaluation II score; SOFA: sequential organ failure score; MV: mechanical ventilation; CREA: creatinine; WBC: white blood cell; ALB: albumin; BNP: brain natriuretic peptide.
