Table 5 Spearman correlation coefficients and delta neutrophils (oral and circulating blood) for before and after cardiopulmonary bypass as compared with MODS on days 0 to 3

From: Oral neutrophils are an independent marker of the systemic inflammatory response after cardiac bypass

Comparison groups Spearman correlation coefficient, (p-value for null hypothesis rho = 0)
