The Sheffield tables are intended to guide practitioners in the prevention of primary coronary artery disease. The authors modified the Sheffield tables by (a) identifying those patients at 15% and 30% risk of coronary artery disease over 10 years and (b) using the total cholesterol to HDL cholesterol ratio rather than total cholesterol alone. Use of the tables can identify those patients who need cholesterol screening and those for whom it is unnecessary.
