The ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus app uses advice from the 2019 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease and other respected publications to help patients and clinicians build a plan to lower risk of heart disease and heart attacks. The app is not designed to replace clinical care but rather to support it and help guide discussion and action for doctors and patients. The app allows users to input all of their information – including age, ethnicity, blood pressure, cholesterol, and more. This information allows the app to estimate the risk of Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) and provide useful information to the patient and clinician.

Overall Comment

What is so great about this app is that it can give you your risk for heart disease, and it can also tell you about some therapies and the potential risk reduction impact of the therapies. It also has an advice section where it makes suggestions on how you can lower your heart disease risk. It is easy to use. It requires information like your cholesterol level, your blood pressure, and other factors. It is generally used by physicians to calculate patients' risk factors but patients can also use it themselves to be more proactive in their cardiovascular care.

Pros

It allows patients to be more proactive about their health care. When patients understand why they are doing certain preventative measures, I think they are more likely to be compliant with therapy.

Cons

It does require recent blood work that you may not have readily available but this can be easily overcome.

This app has great look and feel. It's a really good cv risk calculator... only thing is it doesn't seem to calculate risk for anyone over 59, not sure if that's a glitch in the system or not.

Pros

easy to use

Cons

Doesn't seem to calculate risk for anyone over 59
