Has an excellent treatment recommendation section.  May be useful for patient education. Based on 2013 ACC/AHA Guidelines on the Assessment of Cardiovascular risk, JNC-8 guidelines for blood pressure managment, and draft guidelines from the USPSTF for initiating aspirin therapy.

 

Pooled Cohort Risk Assessement Equations

This peer-reviewed online calculator uses the Pooled Cohort Equations to estimate the 10-year primary risk of ASCVD (atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease) among patients without pre-existing cardiovascular disease who are between 40 and 79 years of age.1 Patients are considered to be at "elevated" risk if the Pooled Cohort Equations predicted risk is ≥ 7.5%. In many ways, the Pooled Cohort Equations have been proposed to replace the Framingham Risk 10-year CVD calculation, which was recommended for use in the NCEP ATP III guidelines for high blood cholesterol in adults.3  This has a nice printable handout for patients. 

 

NIH CVD Risk Calculator

ASCVD risk calculator provided by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institute of Health.  It is based on the Framingham data not on the Pooled Cohort Equations used by the ACC and AHA.
