  1. Summary statistics are reported as medians (lower and upper quartiles). From ICU admission to POD1, those with decreased Q-CRT were defined as improved, and those with increased were defined as worsening. Those with increased delta Ab were defined as improved, and those with decreased were defined as worsening
