This is a cardiovascular risk calculator. It will calculate your patient's 10 year risk for heart disease based on age, sex, race, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and smoking status, and use of hypertension medications, statin and aspirin. In addition to calculating the risk, the app provides suggestions for blood pressure, lipid and aspirin therapy. In general I use this to show patients who are reluctant to start recommended therapy what their current risk is and how treatment can lower their risk.
