- Evaluation strategy description:
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is common in the general population, and most people over 60 years old suffer from the disease. As a disease diagnosis category, CVD includes the following 4 main areas:
- Coronary heart disease (CHD) manifests as fatal or non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), angina pectoris and/or heart failure (HF).
- Cerebrovascular disease, manifested as fatal or non-fatal stroke and transient ischemic attack
- Peripheral artery disease, manifested by intermittent claudication and severe limb ischemia
- Aortic atherosclerosis and thoracic/abdominal aortic aneurysm
Although CHD is the most common manifestation of cardiovascular disease, CHD only accounts for about 50% of the total number of first cardiovascular events. A study included 7,733 participants from the Framingham Heart Study who were 40-94 years old and initially without CHD, and assessed the lifetime risk of CHD. The lifetime risk for 40-year-old men is 49%, and for women it is 32%. Even men and women with no obvious disease at the age of 70 have a lifetime risk of 35% and 24%, respectively. The lifetime risk of CHD varies significantly with the overall burden of risk factors.
The relative risk of CVD can be roughly estimated by calculating the number of traditional risk factors in patients. However, when formulating treatment recommendations for specific patients, it is best to estimate the absolute risk of the first CVD event more accurately. This article will summarize patients who need to assess CVD risk, risk assessment methods, and the significance of risk estimation for preventive treatment. Various CVD risk prediction models are discussed in other topics, and specific strategies for primary preventive treatment of different risk factors are also discussed in other topics

Step two: Check your risk index and the monitoring devices we provide
- If High risk >20%,
Must go to the medical unit for examination immediately.
- Moderate risk 10%~20%,
It is strongly recommended to go to the medical unit to check and wear Soft Sense’s six-lead ECG smart clothes.
- Mild risk 6%~10%
It is recommended to go to the medical unit to check and wear Soft Sense’s one-lead ECG smart clothes.
- Low risk <6%
It is recommended to use diet control and physical fitness training. (The programs are coming soon.)
