  • a Excluding C. parapsilosis cases and deaths that occurred at days 0 to 7 and adjusting for severity of illness category. The multivariable analysis is as follows for intubation, the OR was 7.5, the 95% CI was 2.6 to 21.1, and P was <0.01; and for adequate treatment, the OR was 0.2, the 95% CI was 0.08 to 0.8, and P was 0.01.

  • b Removal of catheter(s) in addition to having received ≥5 days of antifungal treatment.
