CVD risk is reversed after 5-10 years of no smoking
120 mmHg is used for baseline risk
Only applies if SBP is greater than 120 mmHg
3 mmol/L is used for baseline risk.
Click to change to mg/dL.
116 mg/dL is used for baseline risk.
Click to change to mmol/L.
1.3 mmol/L is used for baseline risk.
50 mg/dL is used for baseline risk.
Angina or heart attack in a 1st degree relative < 60 yrs
BMI of 25 kg/m2 for baseline risk
Benefit often has nothing to do with the effect on the surrogate marker. At present, you can only select one intervention at a time.
If mother (< 65 yrs) increase risk 60%
If father (< 55 yrs) increase risk 75%
The amount of risk conferred from a family member to a patient depends on: (1) how close a relative, (2) age of a relative, (3) number of affected family members.
|Total with an event|
|Number who benefit from treatment|
|NNT||%||Number needed to treat|
|Baseline events using baseline factors alone|
|Additional events “caused” by risk factors|
As with all risk calculators, calculated risk numbers are +/- 5% at best. More information.
