  • + means that a variable has been included in the model. Subset (excluding) 1 means all patients included except those in subset 1. Subset 1 was used to calculate a misclassification rate for model 1. etc.

  • ACEI, ACE inhibitor; ARB, angiotensin II receptor blocker; LVSD, left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
