ASCVD Risk estimator
The current tool is used to estimate the 10-year Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) risk. 

The ASCVD Risk Estimator is intended for patients without a prior atherosclerotic cardiovascular event or disease, between 40 and 79 years of age.

The ASCVD Risk Estimator is not intended for patients who have already had an atherosclerotic cardiovascular event or disease. Further contra-indications may be found during the clinical evaluation.

Conditional information

The result of the ASCVD Risk Estimator can be used to inform a dialogue between a physician and their patient about their risk of cardiovascular disease, and guide discussions surrounding risk-reducing interventions, such as life-style intervention or preventative medication.

The ASCVD Risk Estimator was originally derived in a US cohort of patients, and may overestimate or underestimate risks in other populations. However, its discriminative ability remains good (AUROC: 0.75 (95% CI: 0.74, 0.77))

When deciding upon the use of preventative medications such as statins, it is recommended to use not just the 10-year ASCVD Risk, but also look at the individual risk factors for a patient. Precise risk categories depend and vary based upon the target population and the local guidance organisation, but risks above 10% are generally considered high, and risks above 20% very high.
