Framingham Stroke Risk

      This downloadable tool is developed by one of the WSSC Executive Board, Dr. Don Smith and he is providing it free of charge. Using results from the Framingham study, a patient's stroke risk factors are entered on to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and a relative risk of stroke is determined along with a printable graphic.

Disclaimer

      The stroke admission order tools are not new guidelines, standard of care, or recommendations of the WSSC or its members. Rather it is a compilation of stroke orders that are being used by some of the authors of the guideline. These orders are also based on the published literature as well as published guidelines from the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), American Stroke Association (ASA), American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) and the National Stroke Association (NSA), listed below:
