USING THE INTERNET TO DETERMINE FATAL CARDIOVASCULAR RISK IN THE POLISH POPULATION
We present the first program in Poland to determine the cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk of individuals, called Ryzyko. The program is freely available at www.ryzyko.amg.gda.pl. Our program, partially based on the European SCORECARD program, takes into account parameters such as age, sex, systolic blood pressure, total cholesterol concentration and cigarette smoking, and enables internet users to observe themselves to determine the degree of their CVD risk.
