  1. a variables significant in the univariate logistic regression and age groups were included in the multivariate logistic regression. Statistical significance was taken at p < 0.05.
  2. b an extreme delay was considered to be above the 75th percentile delay (42 days).
  3. OR = Odds Ratio, CI = Confidence Interval.
