PooledCohort: Predict 10-Year Risk for Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease

The 2017 American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association blood pressure guideline recommends using 10-year predicted atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk to guide the decision to initiate or intensify antihypertensive medication. The guideline recommends using the Pooled Cohort risk prediction equations to predict 10-year atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk. This package implements the original Pooled Cohort risk prediction equations and also incorporates updated versions based on more contemporary data and statistical methods.
