Description

A risk assessment calculator intended to help patients and their physicians to assess the overall risk of cardiovascular disease. This will help in making practical judgments on what to do about the patient's cardiovascular health, including possible needs for life-style changes or drug treatment of particular risk factors such as raised blood pressure. The calculator takes into account factors such as age, sex, height, Systolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, creatinine level, and whether the patient is a cigarette smoker, has diabetes, and has had left ventricular hypertrophy, myocardial infaction, and/or stroke. It is available in a Javascript and Microsoft Windows version.
