    MAGGIC Risk Calculator for Heart Failure

    Estimates 1- and 3- year mortality in heart failure.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Use in adult patients (≥18 years). Use with caution in patients with reduced ejection fraction (not yet externally validated in this population).

    When to Use
    Pearls/Pitfalls
    Why Use

    Adult patients with heart failure and preserved EF.

    • The Meta-Analysis Global Group in Chronic Heart Failure (MAGGIC) Risk Calculator assigns an integer score based on heart failure risk factors to predict mortality at 1 and 3 years.
    • Can be used in heart failure patients with reduced or preserved ejection fraction (EF).
    • Not yet externally validated for patients with reduced EF.
    • Excludes biomarkers known to correlate with mortality, such as B-type natriuretic peptide.

    Heart failure with preserved EF has significant mortality and is rising in incidence. Predictive models to stratify risk for these patients are necessary.
