Association of body mass index with severity and mortality of COVID-19 pneumonia: a two-center, retrospective cohort study from Wuhan, China

Multivariable-adjusted HRs (95% CIs) for the associations of IMV therapy (A), ICU admission (B), ARDS (C) and death (D) with BMI. HRs (95% CIs) were adjusted for age, sex, neutrophil counts, lymphocyte counts, platelet counts, hs-CRP, and cancer (yes/no). ARDS, acute respiratory distress syndrome. BMI, body mass index. ICU, intensive care unit. IMV, invasive mechanical ventilation. Red line, HR; dotted grey lines, 95% CI.
