Description:

A modified cardiac risk index can be used to perform cardiac risk assessment prior to noncardiac surgery and to estimate a likelihood ratio for the patient. If the overall cardiac complication rate for the a noncardiac surgery (pretest probabilities) is known at an institution, then the likelihood ratio can be used to calculate the cardiac risk for the patient (post-test probability).
