Table 5 Adjusted ORs of normalized blood pressure in hypertensive patients after health education intervention

From: Community-based interventions in hypertensive patients: a comparison of three health education strategies

Variable Normalized blood pressure (<140/90 mmHg)
ORa (95% CI)c P
Interventiond    
  Group 1 self-learning reading 1.00   
  Group 2 regular lecture 2.37 (1.26-4.47) 0.008*
  Group 3 interactive workshop 14.66 (6.59-32.62) <0.001*
Baseline characteristicb    
Hypertension knowledge score 1.06 (0.81-1.38) 0.676
  Systolic BP 0.58 (0.43-0.79) 0.001*
  Diastolic BP 0.80 (0.59-1.07) 0.134
  Serum TG 0.88 (0.66-1.17) 0.369
  Serum HDL 1.15 (0.87-1.51) 0.326
  1. aThe odds ratios of normalized blood pressure (<140/90 mm Hg) in the final model including the intervention group and baseline characteristics unbalanced between the groups (hypertension knowledge score, systolic BP, diastolic BP, serum TG and HDL).
  2. bThe OR per SD increase in each continuous variable.
  3. cCI=confidence interval.
  4. dThe reference category was “Group 1 self-learning reading”.
  5. *P<0.05.
