This Cardiac Risk Score is an internationally accepted tool to determine the risk of a cardiac event amongst people between 30 years and 79 years of age. It is a rough and ready measure and is only indicative of the risk you face.
This Cardiac Risk Score is based on the Framingham Heart Study, a large study conducted by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the United States Government and Boston University. It is considered to be a standardized predictor of risk for a Cardiac event.
It is important to remember that this is a population-based risk score, based on an American study sample and your individual risk may vary. It has been observed that the risk in Indians begins at a much younger age.
