Cardiovascular Risk Assessment Using High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP) & Serum Cholesterol Screening

Purpose:

To estimate cardiovascular disease risk using high sensitivity C-reactive protein and serum cholesterol levels based on the algorithm of Rifai and Ridker.

Specialty:

Cardiovascular Diseases, Pediatric Cardiology

Objective:

risk factors, severity, prognosis, stage

ICD-10:

I00-I02, I05-I09, I10-I15, I20-I25, I26-I28, I30-I52

Description:

Rifai and Ridker proposed an algorithm for predicting cardiovascular risk based on high sensitivity C-reactive protein levels and cholesterol screening. Serum measurements were separated based on quintiles seen for the population. The authors are from Bringham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston.
