Risk calculator tools: 3 options
After calculating the risk for acute coronary syndrome, select the corresponding decision aid to be used during the encounter. When selecting the appropriate decision aid, we recommend selecting the decision aid with the most conservative (i.e. highest) risk estimate. For example, if the HEART score is 0 and the risk is 0.9 to 1.7%, then select the decision aid representing 2% risk.
