The ESC launches a new release of HeartScore
Date:12/3/2008

A new release of HeartScore the interactive tool designed to predict and help manage the risk of heart attack and stroke in Europe created by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) was launched on Tuesday 18 November 2008 at www.HeartScore.org.

This revised version includes relative risk for younger patients, in addition to patient data history and progress monitoring. Three formats are now available to accommodate the users' needs: a Web-Based version in 13 languages tracking patient data history, a PC version available for download and an online Quick Calculator.

"Target, priorities and objectives were redefined for high risk people according to the 2007 European Guidelines on CVD Prevention, with increased emphasis on lifestyle measures and input from General Practice and Cardiovascular Nursing. The new advice on relative risk in the young was defined to flag those in need of intensive lifestyle advice and to help to avoid premature exposure to drug treatment" explained Professor Ian Graham, Chair of SCORE and HeartScore Steering Committee.

HeartScore combines rapid total risk prediction with practical management advice, giving a graphical picture of absolute CVD risk, highlighting intervention areas and identifying the relative impact of modifiable risk factors.

"In Sweden, HeartScore is seen as the method of choice for the prediction of CVD total risk. The new option of relative risk assessment opens the door to a better counselling even in the younger groups" says Prof Joep Perk National Coordinator for CVD Prevention for Sweden.

HeartScore is aimed at supporting clinicians in optimising individual cardiovascular risk reduction. It helps health professionals determine their patients' absolute risk of dying from a CVD in the next 10 years more accurately and promote better heart health management and encourage adherence to the 2007 European Guidelines on CVD Preventi
