ASCVD Risk Estimator
Try out the Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) Risk Estimator below to see how it calculates the 10-year and lifetime risk for ASCVD.
All fields are required to calculate ASCVD risk.8,a,b
These estimates may underestimate the 10-year and lifetime risk for persons from some race/ethnic groups, especially American Indians, some Asian Americans (e.g., of south Asian ancestry), and some Hispanics (e.g., Puerto Ricans), and may overestimate the risk for others, including some Asian Americans (e.g., of east Asian ancestry) and some Hispanics (e.g., Mexican Americans).
Because the primary use of these risk estimates is to facilitate the very important discussion regarding risk reduction through lifestyle change, the imprecision introduced is small enough to justify proceeding with lifestyle change counseling informed by these results.
