STAT Cholesterol is an interactive tool that guides healthcare professionals through the latest and most common cardiovascular risk calculations, including the Framingham Risk Score calculation (from the ATP III Guidelines for treatment of high cholesterol) and several others:
• A Reynolds Risk Score calculator, which incorporates hs-CRP to predict heart disease and stroke risk and is a more accurate way to calculate the Framingham Risk Score.
• The Framingham 10-year General Cardiovascular Risk Profile for Use in Primary Care (Circulation 2008) calculates the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, peripheral artery disease, or heart failure. It features the Heart Age or Vascular Age calculation, which gives the average age of a man or woman with a particular cardiovascular risk score.
• The SHAPE Guideline which incorporates the use of Coronary Artery Calcium Score (CACS) or Carotid IMT (CIMT) to detect plaque.
