The ACC and the American Heart Association (AHA), in collaboration with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and other specialty societies, have released four guidelines focused on the assessment of cardiovascular risk, lifestyle modifications to reduce cardiovascular risk and management of elevated blood cholesterol and body weight in adults.
In order to support the implementation of these guidelines the ACC and AHA have jointly published a new mobile application (app).
The ASCVD Risk Estimator application helps health care providers and patients estimate 10-year and lifetime risks for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) using the Pooled Cohort Equations and lifetime risk prediction tools. The ASCVD Risk Estimator provides easy access to recommendations specific to calculated risk estimates. Additionally, the app includes readily accessible guideline reference information for both providers and patients related to therapy, monitoring, and lifestyle.
The app is available on both iTunes (iPhones, iPads) and Google Play (Galaxy, Nexus, other Android devices). Use the links below from your mobile device to download the app.
