Cardiovascular Risk Assessment

A Cardiovascular Risk Assessment is a systematic evaluation performed by healthcare professionals to estimate an individual’s risk of developing cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in the future. Cardiovascular diseases include conditions such as coronary artery disease (heart disease), stroke, heart failure, peripheral artery disease, and others that affect the heart and blood vessels.

The assessment takes into account various risk factors associated with CVD and combines them to estimate the likelihood of an individual experiencing a cardiovascular event, such as a heart attack or stroke, within a specified period. The assessment helps identify individuals who may benefit from preventive interventions to reduce their risk of developing cardiovascular problems.
