Framingham Coronary Heart Disease Risk Score
The Framingham Risk Score estimates risk of heart attack in 10 years.
There are several distinct Framingham Risk Calculators. MDCalc uses the 'Hard' Coronary Framingham outcomes model, which does not take other co-morbidities into account. For other Framingham Risk Calculations, go to the 'About' section for a link to the Official Framingham Website.
Patients with high risk scores should be counseled aggressively about social factors contributing to their risk (smoking, exercise, weight, diet, etc) and also managed with blood pressure and lipid evaluation.
