Which risk estimator is recommended?

Use the pooled cohort equations tool for most patients. It is derived from community-based U.S. population. It estimates the risk of “hard” clinical events, such as MI or stroke.2

The ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus can be used to estimate 10-year ASCVD risk. It uses the pooled cohort equation. It is available at http://tools.acc.org/ascvd-risk-estimator-plus/#!/calculate/estimate/.

To calculate lifetime risk (e.g., for patients 21 to 39 years of age), get the spreadsheet at https://professional.heart.org/professional/GuidelinesStatements/ASCVDRiskCalculator/UCM_457698_ASCVD-Risk-Calculator.jsp.

See our chart, Common Cardiovascular Risk Calculators, for more information on the pooled cohort equations tool and its limitations, and other risk estimators.
