ASCVD risk assessment using the ASCVD risk assessment calculation is currently recommended by 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk and 2013 ACC/AHA Blood Cholesterol Guidelines. There is a large body of evidence that the risk assessment and CHD prevention based on scores combining multiple risk factors is superior to those using single risk factors. Providing the ASCVD Risk assessment in the Cardio IQ lab report will simplify and improve risk assessment by physicians while helping to streamline the disease management decision process and improving clinical outcome.

For risk calculations to be performed, the following patient-specific
information have to be provided at the time of order:
Age: Years
Gender M (for male) or F (for female)
Race - African American: Y (for yes) or N (for no)
Systolic Blood Pressure: mmHg
Treatment for High Blood Pressure: Y (for yes) or N (for no)
Diabetes Status: Y (for yes) or N (for no)
Smoking Status: Y (for yes) or N (for no)
Patient should fast 9-12 hours prior to collection.
The assay manufacturer Beckman Coulter advises: "N-Acetyl Cysteine
(NAC), when administered in therapeutic concentrations (for the
treatment of acetaminophen overdose), has been...determined to
interfere with assays for...Cholesterol, Uric Acid" where "NAC
interference may lead to falsely low results." According to Beckman
Coulter, the NAC interference should be insignificant by 12 hours
after completion of the initial loading dose of an IV infusion
treatment regimen consisting of an initial loading dose of 150 mg/kg
administered over 1 hr a second dose of 50 mg/kg administered over 4
hrs and a third dose of 100 mg/kg administered over 16 hrs.
