CVD Risk Check

Framingham Risk Score1

Risk assessment tool for estimating a patient’s 10-year risk of developing cardiovascular disease

This online assessment tool is intended as a clinical practice aid for use by experienced healthcare professionals. Results obtained from this tool should not be used alone as a guide for patient care.
Total cholesterol:
HDL cholesterol:
Systolic blood pressure:
 mm Hg 
Is the patient being treated for high blood pressure?

The risk assessment tool above uses information from the Framingham Heart Study as recommended by the 2009 CCS Canadian Cholesterol Guidelines to predict a person’s chance of developing cardiovascular disease in the next 10 years, modified for family history (double the CVD risk percentage if any CVD present in a first degree relative before age 60). In men over 50 or women over 60 of intermediate risk whose LDL-C does not already suggest treatment, hsCRP can be used for risk stratification.
