The Fisher's exact test showed statistical significance of smoking and drinking on the lethality rate
The prognosis was fatal in 35 cases, with a lethality rate
among patients admitted in conscious was 22.2%, in lethargy--26.9%, in stupor--49.1%, in moderate coma--52.5% (p<0.05).
Thus, a protocol could be established to prevent infectious complications, which present a high lethality rate
according to the literature.
More than 200 accidents a year--that's about 16 percent of the total--are due to mechanical or maintenance-related causes, although these tend to have a low lethality rate
. About half are related to engine and propeller malfunctions of some kind.
Of the 85 deaths (25.6%) due to IPD, meningitis was involved in 43.5% of the cases, with a 48.7% lethality rate
(37/76) across all age groups.
(2005) demonstrated that in this case 63.4% of patients develop complications, lethality rate
reaches 19.4%, and risk of neoplastic transformation in the remaining parts of colon remains high.
According to a study done from 1985 to 2000 in Campinas region (LIMA et al., 2003), the disease presents a high lethality rate
of 49%, since 27 patients from 47 diagnosed as BSF died.
Throughout the 28-year epidemic, the AIDS lethality rate
in the studied population was 41.4%.
