Calculator: Cardiovascular risk assessment (10-year, women: Patient education)

Calculator: Cardiovascular risk assessment (10-year, women: Patient education)

Systolic blood pressure  
Total cholesterol  
HDL cholesterol  
On blood pressure medication   
Cigarette smoker   
Diabetes present   

Important: Inputs must be complete to perform calculation.



  • This calculator is intended for women with no prior history of cardiovascular disease (see next bullet). It helps predict the risk over 10 years of heart attack, stroke, or death from cardiovascular disease.
  • A history of cardiovascular disease means a person has (or had in the past) blocked arteries, a heart attack, a stroke, or heart failure.
  • Your doctor can help you understand your personal risk and how to interpret your results. The calculator may overestimate or underestimate your risk; it cannot tell for sure whether you will have a cardiovascular event.
  • Systolic blood pressure is the top number (eg, 120 if blood pressure is 120/80).
  • HDL: high-density lipoprotein.

Equations used
Below is the math that this calculator used to get the result.
Risk_Factors = (ln(Age) * 2.32888) + (ln(Total_cholesterol) * 1.20904) - (ln(HDL_cholesterol) * 0.70833) + (ln(Systolic_blood_pressure) * On_blood_pressure_medication) + Cigarette_smoker + Diabetes_present - 26.1931
Risk = 100 * (1 - 0.95012e(Risk_Factors))


Only digits 0 to 9 and a single decimal point (".") are acceptable as numeric inputs. Attempted input of other characters into a numeric field may lead to an incorrect result.
