Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The ASCVD Risk Estimator is published jointly by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to help health care providers and patients estimate 10-year and lifetime risks for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) using the Pooled Cohort Equations and lifetime risk prediction tools. This app is intended as a companion tool to the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk and the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Risk in Adults.
The ASCVD Risk Estimator provides easy access to recommendations specific to calculated risk estimates. Additionally, the app includes readily accessible guideline reference information for both providers and patients related to therapy, monitoring, and lifestyle.

A few bugs.
It is easy to use but needs a reset button. I am a physician and I use this as a guide for patient care. It takes much longer to use after the first calculation has been done due to needing to actually erase each field. Somehow it resets itself overnight but not during the workday.
I like this app and use it after for my patients, but several times it has caused my iPad to crash. Please find and fix this bug.
Nice app but has a bug
When I enter a TC of 179 along with my other factors, my lifetime risk is 5 pct. if I keep all else equal and raise TC to 180, the risk goes up over 30 pct. This cannot be correct.
