Purpose: Because of the rapid increase in confirmed cases TRANS
of COVID-19, in particular those with severe or critical status, overwhelming of health systems is a worldwide concern. Therefore, identifying high-risk COVID-19 patients, can help service providers for priority setting and hospital resource allocation. Methods: 4542 adult TRANS
patients with confirmed COVID-19 admitted in 15 hospitals in Tehran, Iran, from Feb 20 to April 18, 2020 were included in this retrospective cohort study with final outcomes of survived and died patients. Demographic features including age TRANS
and sex, and laboratory data measured at admission were extracted and compared between recovered and died patients. Data analysis was performed applying SPSS modeler software using a logistic regression method.Results: Of 4542 hospitalized adult TRANS
patients, 822 patients (18.09%) died during hospitalization, and 3720 (81.90%) recovered and discharged. Based on logistic regression model, older age TRANS
, 40-49 (RR= 1.80, CI: 1.13-2.87), 50-59 (RR=2.63, CI: 1.71-4.02), 60-69 (RR= 4.40, CI: 2.92-6.63), 70-79 (RR=7.49, CI: 5.01-11.19), Above 80 (RR=13.85, CI: 9.23-2.77), ALT ≥ 55 IU/ (RR=2.20, CI: 1.69-2.86), AST ≥ 100 IU/L (RR=5.93, CI: 4.75-7.39), ALP MESHD
≥ 200 IU/L (RR=2.46, CI: 1.80-3.37), sodium < 135 mEq/l (RR=1.69, CI: 1.35-2.11) or more than 145 mEq/l (RR=7.24, CI: 5.07-10.33), potassium > 5.50 mEq/l (RR=7.53, CI: 4.15-13.64), and calcium < 8.50 mEq/l (RR=3.39, CI: 2.81-4.09), CPK between 307-600 IU/L (RR=2.73, CI: 2.12-3.53) and above 600 IU/L (RR=4.41, CI: 3.40-5.71) in men, and 192-400 IU/L (RR=2.73, CI: 2.12-3.53), and above 400 (RR=4.41, CI: 3.40-5.71) in women, CRP > 3 mg/l (RR=3.22, CI: 1.99-5.20), and creatinine > 1.5 mg/l (RR=6.37, CI: 5.30-7.66) were significantly associated with COVID-19 mortality. Conclusion: Our findings suggested less than one in five hospitalized patients with COVID-19 die mostly due to electrolyte disbalance, liver, and renal dysfunctions MESHD
. Better supportive care is needed to improve outcomes for patients with COVID-19.
