Supplementary Material

Table 1 of the supplementary material contains the results of investigating the associations between the exposure variables in order to assess for potential confounding or co-linearity before including variables in multivariable models or to consider possible mechanisms of action. Table 2 reports four different possible multivariable models of independent predictors of daytime SpO2 in SCA with either the alpha-thalassemia 3.7 deletion or mean cell haemoglobin plus G6PD genotype or HbF%.
