Clinical Decisions on Cardiovascular Disease: Are Risks or Causes Your Guide?
September 9, 2015•28 min
Host: Alan S. Brown, MD, FNLA
Guest: Allan Sniderman, MD
Risk is calculated by a variety of algorithms, all of which produce an estimate for that individual based on age, gender, cholesterol, blood pressure, and smoking history. The estimate is critical to clinical decision-making, but how accurate is it? Host Dr. Alan Brown welcomes Dr. Allan Sniderman, Edwards Professor of Cardiology at McGill University, to discuss why we should pay more attention to the causes, and less to the risks, of cardiovascular disease.
